Boise vista viewBoise 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.

 

In FY 2012, Boise Airport tallied $17.7 million in operating expenses, 34% of that coming from employee wages and benefits. In the same year, the Airport collected $22.9 million in operating revenues, 32 percent coming from parking fees.

 

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. Since 1952 those grants have totaled more than $136 million. 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.
