    Fly into Albuquerque...

    by kjow Written Aug 25, 2002

    Fly into Albuquerque International airport, or if you're from a neighboring state, drive via I-40 or I-25.
    You definitely need a car to get around, everything is very spread apart. It's like a big suburb.

    Recycled Fashions on Display

    by uaamom Updated Jan 9, 2008

    There is a wonderful little exhibit of very creative fashions made of recycled items, currently on display. It is on the way out to the parking garage, but it is worth checking out if you are there or waiting. These dresses were shown in the Recycled Fashion Shows during past Recycling Week events in Santa Fe. I think they have traveled and been shown elsewhere also.

    Albuquerque International Sunport

    by MarkJochim Written Apr 20, 2003

    Albuquerque's main airport (officially called the "Sunport") lies just a few miles south of downtown and is adjacent to Kirtland Air Force Base (sharing runways and fire/rescue facilities).

    There's plenty of parking and the attractive terminal is easy to navigate. A number of places to eat lie both before and after the security checkpoints, providing a wide range of foods but with a Southwestern emphasis. The terminal also includes plenty of artwork and a large collection of model airplanes to look at in addition to a very nice observation lounge.

    If you have a car and a free afternoon, drive south of the Sunport towards the General Aviation area and you will find an "Airplane Viewing Area" at the end of one of the runways. It's a great place to watch planes take off and land.

    The Sunport has set up their "flyby" or "preferred access" security lane in such a way that it is useless. You bypass other passengers to the document check station (there's never a line here) then move into a ridiculously long line to get through xray check point. If you pay for the "Flyby" benefit on a Southwest flight - you have wasted your money! If you fly a lot (those who are helping to pay the bills at the airport), you get no "thank you" benefit. :-(
    The first picture is where the Flyby/preferred access lane gets you faster (document check)... the second picture shows the line you join AFTER the so called Flyby/access lane. USELESS!

    Then you step into THIS line! Useless.
