Nice little airport we use from time to time. Easy drop off and pick up but like most airports this size the arrivals and departures seem to all happen at the same time. Parking is plentiful and there is a cell phone lot. Getting to the airport is a different story as I 26 has construction both coming and going so plan ahead especially depending on times for flights. There are some small dining facilities at the airport. The displays inside are reflective of the area with photos of things to see.
AVL is a bustling airport that serves the local area. The air carrier termin is a little small but has plenty of seating. No jetbridges and all boarding/deplaning is done via stairs/ramps.
There is plenty of ramp space for corporate jets too. It has 2 ILSs and 2 RNAVs. There are mountains that surround it but the runway lies in a valley.
Be prepared for horrible traffic entering airport. Traffic backed up due to right turning traffic and one lane to terminal. Traffic gets stuck blocking lanes in all directions.
Cell lot is open has no restrooms nope not even a Porta John. 2 hour delays aren't fun with no relief.
Undergoing a major renovation of the entire airport so everything can be chaotic at times. All jetways are not being used at the current time so there is makeshift walkways onto the tarmac to board. Decent selection of snacks and last minute needs. Very cool new security screening machines. Since the airport is small at peak travel times it can get crowded easily.
An extremely small airport and somehow the checked luggage took longer to get to the baggage carousel then it takes an Atlanta (ATL) or Tampa (TPA). But it is a very nice "homey" or "comfy" airport. Its nice to have these smaller airports because the drive from the nearest larger airport would be a 60 minute drive.
Nice and quiet airport, it's clean and maintained but you can tell it's old. Security lines are short as they have just a few scheduled flights departing and arriving at 7 gates.
It serves general aviation too and you can see exec jets take off and land.
Not many shops and no lounges.
First time flying into Ashville. It's a nice little airport. It wasn't very busy and we were through security in a few minutes. Had a couple of overpriced drinks at the bar but what would you expect. I would fly through here again.
Asheville Regional Airport is a very nice airport. I like that it is on the smaller side, yet offers a lot. We generally fly Allegiant which is a very economical way to fly. The airport also hosts other airlines, if you want to use them, including DELTA and AMERICAN AIRLINES.
A great regional airport located in a perfect mountain town! The airport is less than 30 minutes from almost everything you want to do in Asheville. The terminal has adequate seating & is comfortable. Food options are a little lacking but, that's to be expected with the size of the terminal. I'll definitely be flying here again in the future!
What a quaint Regional Airport! Only 7 gates! Nice full service restaurant with bar. The food was good, the server was very nice and knowledgeable, even with many tables to tend to at once. Lovely snack and souvenir shop. Also has an Auntie Ann's and Cinnabon. I will enjoy it when we fly back home.
We fly out of here a lot, as we live in a nearby town. Asheville regional has that small airport feeing while still servicing lots of destinations, and medium bodied aircraft. But, the airport can get very very busy on the weekend, and parking is expensive. I would recommend arriving about 45 minutes to an hour before your flight, depending on what day it is. A lot of the times, the parking lots are completely full, or almost full. This is a great airport!!
I love this Airport 🛫. Small in size, everything is laid out right so you do not have to walk far to get to your gate. TSA is thorough but yet kinder than most agents I’ve had to deal with in my travels.
