The Boise Airport - Idaho Packs Its Bags

The marathon lines in many United States airports haven't been seen at the Boise Airport, where Airport Director Rebecca Hupp doesn't take anything for granted.

Hupp was referring to the summer 2015 analysis that revealed security failures at dozens of the nation's busiest airports, which cost the previous TSA administrator his job.

Even Boise is seeing some of its highest numbers of air travelers ever recorded, but it's something the local airport is prepared for.

"We already had capacity to handle the demand and, while passenger is travel is up, we're in a good position to be prepared for it," Hupp said. "Our airport was designed to handle more."

A recent analysis of Boise enplanements—passenger boarding data—shows March numbers were 11.5 higher than in 2015 and 17 percent higher than in 2013. In total, Boise Airport officials count nearly 3 million passengers per year, with hundreds of thousands more people walking through the doors to greet or drop off loved ones.

That number will undoubtedly go up sooner than later. On the evening of Wednesday, June 1, American Airlines flight No. 473 from Dallas/Fort Worth will touch down at the Boise Airport, inaugurating daily direct roundtrip service between Idaho and DFW International Airport in Texas, one of the nation's largest travel hubs.
