This Tiny Idaho Airport May Soon See Major Commercial Flights
If you've ever tried to fly out of the Treasure Valley to someplace further than Seattle, Portland, or Salt Lake City--then you understand it isn't always an easy task. In fact, some destinations require more than one stop and if you're trying to travel someplace fast--there's no options!
Boise, at this point, is the only "real" airport in the entire State of Idaho and even despite its growth, still does not have "International" status. Behind Boise is the Twin Falls airport which has a few flights to Salt Lake City's international airport.
Up north, if you're looking to hit central Idaho, you'll need to fly into Pullman, Washington and drive. Further north, you're looking at flying into Spokane International airport and driving into Post Falls.
This may soon change, however.
If you didn't already know this, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, has an airport. Nobody is flying in there, however, unless you have a plane yourself or of course, if you're the Kardashians. Recent movement suggests that commercial flights may soon be headed their way, though.
Commercial flights once existed in Coeur d'Alene and ended in the 80's, now, demand to get up north is at an all time high--and it's sounding like a reality once again.
Informational meetings were held at the Coeur d'Alene Airport as developers and leadership begin to discuss the commercial potential. City and local leaders pushed off the discussion at their late December meeting because at this point, the airport doesn't have any commercial airlines "lined up" for the opportunity--but it's obvious the public demand is there.
