The City of Boise, owners and operators of the Boise Airport, are required to prepare and post an approved Emergency Tarmac Delay Contingency Plan pursuant to §42301 of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Modernization and Reform Act of 2012.


This plan describes how, following excessive tarmac delays and to the extent practicable, the City of Boise will:


  • Provide for the deplanement of passengers;
  • Provide for the sharing of facilities and make gates available at the airport; and
  • Provide a sterile area following excessive tarmac delays for passengers who have not
    yet cleared United States Customs & Border Protection (CBP).

This plan is situational and response procedures are subject to Incident Command discretion depending on the conditions and nature of the incident.  Prompt and accurate dissemination of information to everyone is critical.  In addition to the procedures outlined in this document, all agencies (City, Airline, FAA, Customs, Tenants, etc) should follow their own guidelines for ensuring the safety of their personnel and the public.


Question regarding this plan can be directed to the Airport Deputy Director for Airport Operations and Security at 208.383.3110.
