Boise and Boise Airport are uniquely positioned as a hub for
government, commerce, banking, and recreation for the State of
Idaho, eastern Oregon and northeastern Nevada. Located mid-way
between Salt Lake City and Portland in southwestern Idaho, Boise is
strategically located for reaching western markets. The growth of
BOI's air cargo market has coincided with the high tech
manufacturing that has found a home in the Boise Valley.
In addition to the 6 mainline and regional airlines providing
service through the airport, there are almost 50 motor freight
trucking companies, 30 air freight and package express companies,
and several air courier services monthly. The U.S. Customs and
Border Protection Service maintains an office at the airport.
The level of transportation services provided from the area are
unmatched by any city of similar size in the country. Major cargo
carriers have a solid presence at BOI. FedEx continues to operate
from facilities east of the terminal and United Parcel Service
operates from the west end of the airfield, adjacent to the
threshold of Runway 10R.
Boise Airport takes pride in our assets and strives to protect
them. Our citizens and businesses rely on us to be an economic
engine by providing high quality facilities that are both aviation
and business friendly. While west coast airports like Seattle and
San Francisco are constrained for space, Boise has a clean slate
for cargo expansion. Our favorable market, growth potential,
diverse aviation use, and protected airport environment are
attributes that set us apart from larger airports such as
Portland and Seattle.
