Best One-Stop Takeoff

Boise Airport expands services

Staff Pick

There is more taking off at the Boise Airport than passenger planes--much more. In August, airport officials announced new direct service to Houston and SkyWest's plans for a $20 million maintenance facility went public. At the same time, big changes are coming to BOI in the form of retail and concessions: specifically, shops and restaurants bearing the names of the Idaho Statesman, The River 94.9 FM, The Greenbelt, CNBC, Boise Co-op, Parrilla Grill, 13th Street Pub and Grill, Bardenay, Einstein Bros. Bagels, Big City Coffee, Cross Grain Brewhouse, and Harvest and Ground Bakery and Coffee. Beyond that, flyers will be able to buy local products including beer from Sockeye Brewing Co. and Crooked Fence, wine from Cinder Wines, coffee from Flying M and baked goods from Zeppole. Forget actually flying anywhere, we just want to hang out at the airport from now on.
