Boise Airport is a self-sustained enterprise fund
department of the City of Boise. There are 109 Boise Airport
employees and 20 police officers assigned to the airport from
the Boise Police Department.
As an enterprise fund for the City of Boise, no local tax
funding contributes to the airport. Revenues are generated by fees
and charges as well as federal grant funding. Capital development
must be paid for through these funds as well.
Boise Airport is a non-profit entity and all revenues above
expenses are reinvested into the city's aviation operations.
Boise Airport is also the beneficiary of FAA grants. This money
has gone toward projects such as runway and terminal improvements,
land acquisition, noise abatement, security enhancements, baggage
system upgrades, fire equipment and basic infrastructure.
