Your gateway to the world

Welcome to the official PUW Web site—your global connection. No matter where you come from on the Palouse, PUW is your gateway to the world. Daily, direct flights transport you in just one hour to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. From here, the sky’s the limit.

Passenger Alerts:

  1. Due to TSA personnel policy, the screening checkpoint closes at 10:30 PM. We recommend any traveler with a delayed flight be through security by 10:15 PM


PUW will be hosting another TSA Pre® Enrollment Opportunity – July 8-12, 2019 and July 15-19, 2019 

TSA Pre-Check offers the ability to bypass normally slow-moving security lanes in favor of an expedited one. By going through the TSA Pre-Check lane, passengers no longer have to remove shoes, the 3-1-1 liquid compliant bag, laptops, light outerwear/jackets, and belts. Today, TSA Pre-Check has more than 450 lanes at 200+ U.S. airports.


If an airport doesn’t offer a full TSA PreCheck lane, many of them will still provide some form of expedited security that allows you to keep your shoes on and pass through a metal detector instead of a full body scanner. However, expect to take your liquids and computer out of your baggage.


Even if you are an occasional traveler, you will want to think about enrolling in this program to spend more time doing what you love and less time waiting in security lines. TSA Pre-Check is one of the best travel benefits you can take advantage of, given its relatively low cost of only $85 for five years.


TSA Pre-Check Enrollment services will be at the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport on July 8-12 and July 15-19. Become part of an expedited screening program that helps take the stress out of travel.


Applying for TSA Pre-Check through this local enrollment event is easy.  Applicants are encouraged to Pre-Enroll by simply going to choose “Start Application Now” then “New Enrollment.” Choose “Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport” as your appointment location. Walk-ins are welcome but are also encouraged to Pre-Enroll. Wait times may vary depending on scheduled appointments.


To complete the application process, bring proof of identity and U.S. citizen documentation such as a U.S. Passport or a certified birth certificate and a driver license. A valid U.S. passport is recommended as it serves as proof of identity and U.S. citizenship.


The application process is completed on-site. The application process includes fingerprinting for a background check, and the collection of the $85 fee. The fee can be paid by credit card, money order, company check, or certified cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted. Look for more information click on TSA Pre® here.

Runway closure scheduled for fall of 2019.

The runway will be closed, September 8th through October 3rd. Alaska Airlines has blocked closure dates in their booking schedule. October 4th the runway is scheduled to open with VFR (Visual Flight Rules) which is how we operate now. The publication date for the new runway with IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) is October 10th, 2019.

Lyft and Uber are here!

We are happy to welcome Lyft and Uber to the Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport.


Parking is available in front of the airport terminal and to the east of the terminal. ALL parking spaces are $5 per day; this includes gravel lots and ADA spaces. The parking kiosk is located inside the terminal building, on the right past the men’s restroom. The kiosk will ask for your stall number and number of days you intend to park. If you do not know or see a stall number use stall number 500. The kiosk accepts debit/credit cards and exact cash (the kiosk will not give change back). There are administration fees added to parking if not pre-paid – $5 will be added to the first days, with an additional $5 per week.

If you do not know your parking stall number enter space 500 and place your receipt on the dash of your vehicle. This will help the parking attendants know you paid for parking.
