Travelers are finding out the advantages of flying from Pocatello Regional. A recent article in the Idaho State Journal reports a 45 percent increase from March to September, 2016 over 2015, in passenger count going in and out of Pocatello Regional Airport.
David Allen, airport manager, believes the reason for the increased traffic at Pocatello’s airport “is because of strategic marketing that highlights the facility’s positive attributes. Allen says the cost between flying and driving to Salt Lake City is comparable, and many times, the cost of flying is cheaper. He also said traffic from eastern Idaho’s northern counties — such as Madison and Bonneville — is increasing.”
Even with the increased attention from travelers, the airport will continue to offer free amenities including the almost unheard of free parking. Other luxuries afforded to passengers include free Wi-Fi, book sharing center courtesy of the Friends of the Marshall Public Library, shoe-shine station by Meyers Shoe Repair, a water refill station from Culligan Water Conditioning of Pocatello, complimentary coffee and a children’s play area from Pocatello Regional Airport.
