However, with passenger numbers reaching over three million there are plans to add a further concourse in the foreseeable future.

Useful tips


Carry an empty bottle

Pick ups

Save on parking when collecting passengers by heading to the free Cell Phone Lot. You can wait there until your guest arrives and then drive to the terminal to collect them. It is located next to the Airport Inbound road and is clearly signposted.

Drop off luggage before returning your car rental vehicle

It has been noted by passengers that the distance from the ticketing area in Concourse C to the Car Rental Counters, at the other end of the terminal, is quite a hike. If you have a lot of luggage you may want to consider dropping your bags off before taking your vehicle back so you don’t have to carry them the length of the terminal.

Arrive 90 minutes before your scheduled departure time

Although frequent fliers have stated that arriving one hour before your scheduled departure is sufficient, the official recommendation from Spokane International Airport is to arrive 90 minutes before your plane is due to leave.
