Benefits of Flying out of Pocatello Regional Airport (KPIH), Idaho

Sheryl Perrine is one passenger that believes flying the friendly skies out of a local airport is the way to go.

"I just really enjoy the convenience of it.  It's so close, you can just drive over here from Pocatello, park your car,” says Pocatello passenger Sheryl Perrine.

Passenger Karen McGee flies right along the side with her on that one.

"Oh my gosh, it's so convenient.  And I am so lucky, because I do a lot of flying with my kids out of town and going on vacations,” says Pocatello passenger, Karen McGee.

Airport Manager David Allen says coming back after a long trip can make flying out of Pocatello nicer too.

"When you get home after a full day of traveling, you are only minutes away.  You are not driving for two and a half hours from Salt Lake,” says Pocatello Regional Airport Manager, David Allen.

Passengers flying out of Pocatello Regional Airport say it's not only convenient, but there are other benefits as well.

"Parking is free, it's convenient. The check in is pretty simple and easy and the security is minimal in terms of they are thorough but it doesn't take long to get through and so on,” added Perrine.

"I love it!  I love the personal out here.  I love how you are treated out here.  I love the fact that you can get dropped off at the door, come right in and get on your flight,” added McGee.

And cost, passengers say it's not as bad as some may think by the time you pay all the extras to travel to another airport.

"I think it is reasonable.  I mean it may be a little bit, but you are paying for the convenience,” says Perrine.

As a matter of fact I just got back from going to London and it was a $150 dollars cheaper for me to fly from Pocatello then it was Salt Lake,” says McGee.

"I just feel time is money too,” concluded Perrine.

Airport Manager David Allen says they just added a fourth flight to their daily schedule which will allow more frequency and more options for passengers flying out of Pocatello.
