5 Things We Love About Evansville Regional Airport (EVV)
1. EVV’s business lounge
EVV’s free-to-use post-security business lounge has privacy booths, couch seating, privacy shielded tables and “fishbowl” offices.
Bonus “get things done” extras include free Wi-Fi and seats with charging outlets in the terminal.
2. EVV’s Second Saturday Stories
Here is a great way to make an airport a key part of the community.
EVV’s “Second Saturday Stories” is a storytelling program in partnership with the local library system that takes place at the airport on, you guessed it, the second Saturday of each month.
Children and their family members gather at the airport to listen to stories, sing songs, create art about airplanes and aviation, and just have fun.
We also love the play area for kids at EVV
3. EVV’s Iron Compass café
EVV’s Iron Compass Café and bar – the airport’s only restaurant – is a bit different than other regional airport restaurants. The menu includes more than 70 brands of bourbon, from regional Kentucky bourbons to nips of the precious Pappy Van Winkle.
4. EVV’s solar parking canopies
Fewer than 10 airports around the country have solar covered canopies and, at 1.3 megawatts, EVV’s will be the largest solar parking canopy installation in the U.S.
When at full operation the canopies will supply 50 percent of the terminal’s power.
5. Shopping at EVV
Evansville Regional Airport (EVV) has one small gift shop, but it stocks some unusual items.
On the shelves, passengers will find a local line of soap and shampoo for dogs, Evansville-themed “e is for everyone” swag and, for some reason, giant spoons that are more than 3 feet long.
