Simple, Great Ambiance and Easy to travel through Aug 05, 2012
My family arrived at Tucson International Airport from Houston on our outbound journey from the East coast. Tucson is my home airport and even though I have transited through it many times, I find that it changes for the better each time. This time around, the sitting and shops inside the terminal have been changed to create more space and ambiance.

The orange chairs add color and warm to the airport, while the well laid plane creates a sense of 'knowing where one is' even for the first time traveler. It is a relatively small airport so it is easy to travel through. Security checks are fast and to the point, and the workers are pleasant despite their unpleasant task of checking people’s bags and patting them down.

All in all, it is a nice, simple and easy to work around airport.

Tucson International airport Feb 16, 2010
Tucson International airport is a small airport located in Tucson, Arizona's second largest city after Phoenix. It does not service too many flights because of it's capacity. It is well designed for easy access, easy to get around because everything seems to be at a lattitude level with only two storeys. The signs for each airline is clearly marked outside the departure area from where the check=in counters can be seem through huge clear glass windows. The arrival and departure information board is located by the restrooms, easy to read and accessible. It is services by two restaurants once you are inside the gate area past security, one gift shop, a coffee shop and a bar.

Beautiful orange coloured seats available at each gate creating such soothing ambiance. Please do not expect many International carriers here as many are partners of domestica american airlines.

I would not advise you to use the airport parking lot if you will be staying more than two days at your destinations since it becomes costly. At $8.00 a day and $4.oo an hour, it becomes costly. Parking outside the airport is available for as low as $2.50 a day with return transfers to the airport provided by the Parking management, all you have to do is tip the drivers. Please do tip them as they work for tips and a minimal wage.

Tucson International Airport is a small airport, so it is pretty easy to get around. Most of the restaurants are located past security, so if you are dropping off someone, don't expect to be able to sit with them and east lunch prior to the flight.

The airport is going through a lot of remodeling, so hopefully they can resolve this issue soon. Parking is alo pretty cheap compared to other airports.

Tucson Airport was a little more difficult than most other airports I have been too. The security is the worst part. They do the average things after 911 but thats not as bad when you walk into a restraunt they make you take your shoes off outside the door and leave them with the gaurd.To get on the plain you need a security gaurd escort as well.
