ALBUQUERQUE AIRPORT customer review :  3 March 2014 by D Graubard    (USA)

Great regional airport. Good food - reflecting the unique New Mexican cuisine. From drop off through ticketing and security shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. As stated before the observation area is nice and quiet - with good views of the Monzano mountains and the active runways. Decor is South-western and very classic - with a lot of the original building that existed prior to the terminal upgrade back in the 1990s. It's not O'Hare with lots of flight options, but also not the delays and crowds. Just wish there were more flights as prices can be high to various hub cities.

The worst airport I have visited. My flight arrived here as a connection that was delayed so we arrived close to midnight. Aside from janitors there was no one that worked for the airport readily available. As I attempted to sleep in the very poorly heated terminal until the next morning I was woken up by a security guard who told me that I cant sleep in the terminal and must go outside and then re-enter security in the morning. In the morning I was informed by the TSA agent that even though I was active duty military, I cannot go through the pre-approval line unless I'm in uniform even though she knew that we are no longer supposed to travel in uniform.

I have used ABQ for departure and arrival 3 or 4 times, mostly at a time when I was doing business with a local company. What I appreciated most about this airport was the easy get away and arrival. The traffic was never bad and that allowed me to get my car and get out or get to the airport and on to the check in counter with little delay or problem. The facilities are not extensive and the amenities are modest. But with 25 gates, it is not overwhelming. The facilities are also aesthetically quite pleasing.

A shame ABQ doesn't have many flights other than Southwest, because it is definitely the best airport in the Southwest. Good security, fast baggage claim, and no terminal transfers since they hold everything in one building, which even blends into its surroundings. Food is a little pricey as well, but otherwise it is harder to find a better airport.

Albuquerque is a terrific airport. Parking is easy and affordable. Getting in and out is a breeze. The only down side is the wait at the TSA checkpoint can be long and slow so give yourself a couple hours before your flight leaves.

Albuquerque International Sunport is a functional medium-size US airport. There is only one terminal with 25 gates, so walking distances are relatively short. The corridors are wide and ceilings are high, so a bright, airy feel. The airport is immaculate. The taxi and rental car shuttle rank are only about a hundred yards from the gate area exit and only steps beyond bag claim. The security queue moves relatively fast. The one negative is that food and beverage options are limited to a Quizno's, a bar and grill, a bakery offering mediocre sandwiches, and a New Mexican restaurant offering very mediocre food.

Rental cars at this airport are extremely expensive. To save a lot of money, I found that renting from an in town location, even with return to the airport, can easily save 40% or more. The trick is to reserve before with the in-town location, take a cab to the location. The cab may cost $25 to $35, but the savings can be much greater. I rented a Hertz mid-size car for 9 days with an AAA standard discount and saved $300 compared to the airport price, same rental, same discount card! Another point about this airport, if you're traveling economy on Delta, watch out! On my trip, Delta had no curb check-in for baggage and the "self-check" inside the terminal had a line with about 200 people. Extremely annoying, even if you've "checked-in" by Internet beforehand.


Albuquerque Int'l Airport review by Chris Rothenberger

21 January 2008   Customer Rating : 5 Star Rating

I always try to have plenty of lead time so I can go upstairs to the observation lounge - a hidden gem above the main food court. Free wireless internet, leather sofas, work tables and spectacular view of the mountains, all make this a great place to find calm after security before the flight. Look for the two stairs flanking the large eagle-catcher statue. That's another thing: check out the permanent art collection located throughout the complex. NM is known for its native arts, and what a more fitting place.

Albuquerque Int'l Airport review by Steve Koenig

9 November 2007   Customer Rating : n/a

Mid-size, fairly modern airport. Looked like free parking in front of the rental car building. Shuttles between the terminal and rental car building seemed to run quite often, even at night. Decent selection of restaurants and shops for this size airport, though security line area was typically chaotic.


Albuquerque Int'l Airport review by Pedro Gil

The southwest decor makes this airport unique. Easy rental car return, with shuttle bus drivers friendly and eager to hoist your luggage on and off the bus. Certainly airport concessions everywhere can be expensive, but beware the snack bar directly ahead of you after security is extremely expensive. They wanted $7.00 for a coffee and danish !

Albuquerque Int'l Airport review by Mark Jochim

21 October 2005

I've lived in Albuquerque for the past 11 years and use the Sunport frequently. Long-term parking is a breeze and I've always enjoyed the Southwestern decor of the terminal -- can't get enough of the vigas, the tribal art, etc. It feels more like an art gallery in areas than a drab & dreary airport!! And if you have time, be sure to check out the reproduction of the first airplane to land in New Mexico and the many display cases of model aircraft (before security). There's an abundance of interesting shops and good places to eat (my favorites are Garduno's and Quizno's. It's rarely too crowded except at peak times at the concentration of gates at the far ends of the two piers. Large windows afford great views of the planes taking off and landing; I've never actually climbed the stairs to the special -- and expensive / controversial -- observation deck, however. My only "complaint" would be that the terminal can resemble a ghost town if you arrive on a late flight (say, after 10 or 11 pm or so). It would be nice if at least one place to eat would stay open for the later arrivals (the last plane from Phoenix typically arrives around 2:30 am).

Albuquerque Int'l Airport review by D Larkin

7 March 2005

I'm pretty satisfied with the ABQ airport. I personally am not a fan of the Southwestern theme, but I suppose it gives the airport character and fits in with the Albuquerque atmosphere. The terminal is laid out well, and there's plenty of signage. Restaurant on the second floor is tasty. The best part of this airport is the FREE wireless internet! If only all airports could offer free wireless.

Albuquerque Int'l Airport review by R Anderson

21 November 2004

This is a good airport, and one of the few I know of that offer free wireless Internet access. I found that while up in the observation area. One piece of advice. it is IMPOSSIBLE to find a gas station anywhere near the car rental building--which is not onsite, and only gotten to via a bus from the terminal. If returning a car, make sure to fill up your tank before taking the exit for the airport. I found this out the hard way.

Albuquerque Int'l Airport review by A Day

23 October 2004

I live in Albuquerque and it's always a relief to arrive at ABQ after a long flight. It's got to be one of the easiest airports in the world to navigate and one of the most pleasant, and it's very accessible to the city. Parking is simple and the amazingly inexpensive outer lots have good reliable transportation to the terminal. Why can't all airports be this good?

Albuquerque Int'l Airport review by George Santulli

19 July 2004

What a delight is the Sunport at Albuquerque! A nice smallish airport, but very nicely laid out and pretty in a southwestern motif. The walk from the gate to the baggage carousel is short and pleasant due to the shops and restaurants one passes along the way.
