BOISE - Mayor Dave Bieter and Boise Airport Director Rebecca Hupp officially opened an expansion of the airport parking garage Tuesday morning.
The addition gives travelers flying out of Boise nearly 800 new parking spaces, a critical addition leading up to the busiest travel times.
Hupp said the airport was rated in the top seven by Travel and Leisure Magazine, but that they are constantly striving to improve the airport for travelers. Adding that parking is a very important part of the trip.
The expansion project was originally planned several years ago but state law required a 2/3 vote from Boise voters. In 2010 the Idaho Legislature changed the laws to allow the Boise Airport to move forward.
