Boise Airport Expansion

Sun Jul 27, 2003 11:37 am

For those of you who know about the completion of Phase I in the BOI expansion, here is some info on Phase II, and III. There might be a few things wrong, and I might miss out on some details...

Phase II:
They will start tearing down the Old Main Terminal making way to build the Security corridor, and Food court. They will also build a new jetbridge to Concourse B. They will build a Concourse C. It will be located on the lower floor of the food court. This will allow gates to Horizon, Big Sky and Alaska.

Phase III:
They will be demolishing and rebuilding Concourse A. Concourse A will be a mirror image of Concourse B, on the other side of the food court. I am not sure what airlines will go into Concourse A, nor do I know if they will keep Concourse C.

I hope that brought new information on the Expansion. I am not sure when the new runway will be built. I will try and make a map of the New Expansion. The whole thing will add 10 more gates or so. I have been in the new main terminal and it is very nice and modern. I got the information by emailing the website. You can go to the website via

I have some relatives who live in Boise, and I usually go up every summer (although not this summer).

My cousin went through there a few weeks ago and says it's really nice. Looks pretty good from the concept art.

Hey!!!!! You haven't e-mailed me back yet! Anyways, thats good to know about Boise. I hope to see direct service between EUG-BOI some day, but I think Yeilds are too low, although a Q200 once a day might be a good fit, it is a horizon hub, and it would offer a more convienent connection to Boise, but I guess PDX still has plenty of room... I guess we'll see.

What airlines serve BOI and with what aircraft and frequency.

Three concourse sounds like a lot to me, I guess I had the wrong idea of Boise.

I too am a bit surprised that there is enough demand in BOI for another concourse and 10 more gates. Are some of the carriers planning additional service? The last time I was there a couple of years ago, the terminal seemed to be the right size and not too busy.

Boise has :
Horizon (hub)
Big Sky
Skywest (UAL)
Skywest (DAL)
America West
and I've heard that they are getting Alaska. American Eagle was there for awhile, but I've been told they left. I moved away month's ago, but this should be relatively up to date. Also there's the guard base (A-10s, C-130s, UH-60s, AH-64s, and C-12s) and the NIFC (National Interagency Fire Center) ramp, where a lot of fire bombers fly out of during fire season.

UPS: 757s
ABX: DC-9s
DHL: 727s(I see them every once in a while)
Evergreen International: DC-9s(I also see them every once in a while)

I am not sure what the Air Taxis use.
Hope that helps!
