BOI: 5 Things We Love About Boise Airport

Our “5 Things We Love …” series of features and amenities at airports around the country and the world continues today with Idaho’s Boise Airport (BOI)

Keep in mind that right now some features and amenities at BOI may be temporarily unavailable due to health concerns. We are confident they will be back.

If we miss something you love about BOI, please drop a note in the comments section below.

Let us know, too, if there’s an airport you’d like us to include in the 5 Things We Love… series.

5 Things We Love About Boise Airport

2. Shopping at BOI

Idaho is famous for potatoes, of course, and BOI shops have fun potato-themed gifts for sale.

3. Donation Kiosks in TSA Checkpoint

Passengers who show up at the Boise Airport security checkpoint with extra change in their pockets can donate that money to local charities at one of the donation kiosks. Choose the Boise Zoo, the Boise Library, or the local groups helping out people in the community who are experiencing homelessness.

4. The Arcades at BOI

The Boise Airport has four Family Fun Center arcades throughout the airport. Passengers can play pinball, test their luck with a claw machine, or try flying an airplane.

5. Locally Made Spirits at BOI

Boise is home to Bardenay, which claims to be the country’s first restaurant distillery. The menu at the airport branch of Bardenay includes cocktails made with locally distilled vodka and gin.
