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.
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.
