This is TRI Cities Airport, in Kingsport Tennessee. This is the entire concourse, six gates not all of them in use, two baggage claims, no pre-check lane for security. I have a love-hate relationship with small airports. While small airports are easy and efficient, they lack services and amenities, and with the limited number of flights it can be more difficult when things go awry. This was the only commercial airport within 100 miles of the program site. It was pricey to fly in and out of - $488, but the rental car was cheap - $56 total with tax for two days, and the car was new - it had 250 miles on it.
TRI has a nice modern terminal. And you are always Number 1 for takeoff at a small airport.
When I lived in Lexington, my home airport was small, about 8 gates when we first moved there, then later about 12. Two baggage claims. It seemed tiny after Orlando. Here in DC I fly in and out of Washington National Airport, 40 plus gates, over a dozen baggage claims, lots of airlines, lots of flights, lots of traffic, and a subway station.
What is your local airport like?
