Dear Fellow Chamber Member:
If someone offered you eight hours of your life back, with no strings attached, you’d take it, right?
That’s eight hours to do whatever you want – catch up on things you’ve been meaning to get to, reach out to new business prospects, get through that stack of reading, or maybe just take a well-earned day of relaxation and rest. (And who doesn’t need more of those?) And all with no strings attached.
The answer’s obvious: Anyone would take that deal. They’d be crazy not to.
Here’s the good news: You can give yourself that eight hours, and most times put money in your pocket anytime you need to fly somewhere for business, by flying out of Pocatello instead of driving to Salt Lake to catch your flight.
That’s what that drive to Salt Lake and back is costing you – eight hours of your life. Aren’t we all busy enough nowadays? Isn’t there enough demand on your time? Why add to it with a long, tiring, inconvenient and sometimes dangerous drive to the Salt Lake airport, when the Pocatello airport is just minutes away?
It’s your life. It’s your eight hours. What are those things worth?
“Okay. It would be nice to do away with the hassle of driving to Salt Lake every time I want to catch a plane. But what’s this business about putting money in my pocket?”
It’s true: Flying out of Pocatello can actually save you money, when all costs are taken into account. In fact, on average, anytime the difference between flying out of Pocatello and flying out of Salt Lake City is less than $228, you’re money ahead to fly out of Pocatello.
(A quick note: We don’t know how they do it – it’s some kind of “black box” magic – but our superb local travel agents have mastered finding the most competitive rates out of Pocatello. It always pays to contact them for costs. You’ll find a list of travel agents and contact information on the Pocatello airport’s website, at the link above.)
Time and money. Isn’t that what business is all about? More than ever, we’re challenged to find enough of both. When you’re flying on business, make the smart choice, the one that saves you both time AND money. Fly Pocatello. You’ll be glad you did.

P.S. – Did I mention free parking? Free Wi-Fi? How about a free lending library for reading materials? Oh, and there’s a complimentary shoe shine station as well. And let’s not forget free coffee, or the fact that our staff and gate personnel are some of the friendliest at any airport, anywhere. Not only does flying out of Pocatello make great business sense – it’s a lot more pleasant!
