IDAHO FALLS — Idaho Falls Regional Airport has launched a new website and logo that will aim to make the airport more accessible within the community, according to an Idaho Falls Regional Airport press release.

The website,, integrates the airport’s three letter airport code in its URL and was designed to be mobile-friendly. Craig Davis, IDA airport director, said the functionality of the new site will give customers all the information they need, including a cost calculator, which shows travelers the true costs of flying out of larger airports.

“People can actually compare the true costs, all the costs of traveling out of large airports such as Salt Lake City, for example,” Davis said. “They can actually type in their gas, their lost time when they could be at work, travel, airfares and all that stuff and find out the true cost.”

City Public Information Officer Kerry McCullough said the new website is an improvement from the airport’s previous webpage located within the Idaho Falls city website.

“It’s airline specific,” McCullough said. “Before, it was built into the city’s website, and this way they can go in and that cost comparison will be a really good tool, and we’ll be able to update the information with more airline-specific information.”

The Idaho Falls Airport also is launching an “I fly IDA because…” giveaway. Entrants will need to submit an entry form to the airport through Facebook or Woobox about why they choose to fly from the local airport. Each week, one participant will win a $200 Delta Air Lines or United Airlines gift card, and one participant will win a trip for two to Las Vegas or Phoenix, courtesy of Allegiant Air, according to the press release.

Participants who share the promotion on social media, and get their friends to enter the giveaway, will receive one additional entry, increasing their chances of winning.

The promotion will begin at 10 a.m. July 28 and will conclude at 11:50 p.m. Aug. 25.

“We’ve seen extraordinary growth at the airport over the past couple of years, and I’m anxious to see what happens as a result of our new marketing campaign,” Mayor Casper said in the news release.
