Boise Airport Increases Parking Capacity Near the Terminal with the Opening of a New Public Parking Garage

The Boise Airport celebrated the opening of a much-anticipated public parking garage today with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The new East Parking Garage will increase long-term parking capacity at the terminal by over 50%, adding over 1,100 additional stalls.

The Boise Airport experienced a record year for passenger travel in 2022, serving nearly 4.5 million passengers. Initial passenger statistics for 2023 are outpacing that record-setting year by 11% through June.

“With an increase in passenger travel comes an increased demand for parking,” shared Airport Director Rebecca Hupp. “Our goal is to grow in pace with our community and continue to provide the easy and convenient passenger experience the Boise Airport is known for—and that experience really starts with airport parking.”

“One of the things that makes Boise such a great place to live, work and play is having such easy access to our airport. It connects us to friends and family, spurs economic development and is so conveniently located. This additional parking garage near the terminal will make the airport even more convenient and flying more accessible for everyone,” stated Boise Mayor Lauren McLean.

The construction of the East Parking Garage is part of the airport’s multiyear capital expansion plan, BOI Upgrade. Other projects included are an employee parking garage that is on-track to open next Spring, a Consolidated Rental Car Center (CONRAC) that will break ground this fall, and a brand-new concourse, Concourse A, that is anticipated to begin construction in 2026.  BOI Upgrade is being funded through a mix of general airport revenue bonds, passenger facility charges, customer facility charges, and general airport revenue. No local tax dollars are used to fund the infrastructure expansion.



The Boise Airport welcomed nearly 4.5 million passengers in 2022 and is served by eight airlines flying to 25 nonstop destinations. As infrastructure critical to the region’s growth and prosperity, the Boise Airport is a vital asset for Idaho and serves as a gateway to the entire Treasure Valley. According to a recent study, each year BOI generates more than $2.9 billion in total economic impact, supports more than 21,000 jobs in the region and produces more than $157 million in state and local taxes. BOI receives no local tax dollars. Visit to learn more.
