Boise Airport tours offer an opportunity to become familiar with a busy aviation facility, both as a future passenger and as an aviation insider. All tours are designed to provide an educational experience, but are also intended to bring out that excitement about the magical world of aviation.


Depending on your group's needs, the educational tour of the airport terminal building provides an insider's edge on the future of aviation, its role in the growth of the Treasure Valley, and a look at the career fields associated with aviation. When available, a K-9 training and/or an airfield special equipment demonstration will be included.

TourGroup.jpg Terminal ours are offered weekdays by appointment only and take 1-1.5 hours; 10 AM is a good start time for tours. Unfortunately, we cannot provide tours of aircraft or secure airline areas. Terminal facility tour includes a walk through the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screening area, where the group will be provided a demonstration on the security checkpoint process. Please visit the TSA web site, www.tsa.gov and review the prohibited items list.


If your students or group of 12 or more would like to learn more about Boise Airport and the 

aviation industry, please complete this Tour Request and email or mail it to the Boise AIrport at least two weeks in advance. If you have a question, please leave a message at 208-383-3110 extension 0. Your call will be returned shortly.



Other airport facilities also offer tours. Please let us assist you in arranging these specialized visits:


  • Customs & Border Protection facility (international border trade & travel security)
  • Air Rescue Fire Fighters (ARFF) station (specialized equipment for aircraft fire fighting)
  • Idaho Air National Guard
  • National Interagency Fire Center
  • Western Aircraft (general and corporate aircraft sales, charter, & maintenance)
  • Jackson Jet Center (general and corporate aircraft sales, charter, & maintenance)

Group members must be no younger than 2nd grade, and require one adult to every five children/students. Adults/guardians are required to stay with the group at all times.


Verify your tour by calling 2 or 3 days before. Ask for bus parking instructions when you call. BOI will validate no more than two parking vouchers should private vehicles be used for your group.


Thank you again for your interest in Boise Airport. We look forward to your visit.
