My wife Sally and I love the Shenandoah Valley airport. Everyone treats you like a friend and a neighbor rather than just another customer. We also love the free parking, which compared with other flying options, saves us more money than traveling to a much large airport not to mention the convenience of all that time and additional driving.
The TSA officers at SHD made my solo travel experience with an infant, seven-year-old, and nine-year-old so much easier. He gave me step-by-step instructions on what I should unpack at screening and was really amazing with my older kids. The TSA experience we had should be the standard for TSA experiences everywhere!
I fly out of SHD whenever possible - it’s an amazing resource for the Valley. I can arrive at the airport an hour before my flight and be safely on a plane to any destination in the world. Then, when I return, I can jump in my car and be home in 15 minutes. The new carrier is a United partner, so my bags are checked through to the final destination. With the time saved in travel, money saved in parking, and the convenience of its location – you just can’t beat SHD for travel.
The decision to fly from SHD was a no-brainer for our family. The cost/benefit for us to fly out of SHD was amazing. The location of the airport made it easily accessible to us from Bridgewater and Dayton. Free parking! The flight to Chicago was direct, and less than 2 hours take off to touch down.
I love the convenience of SHD! The staff is always friendly with quick and efficient service. I have yet to leave on a late flight. I enjoy knowing it will be a smooth transition from the plane to my car just steps from the terminal to be on my way home.
Once you fly out of SHD you will see how much time & money you save! I will never fly out of another airport!
