JACKSON (WNE) — Fodor’s Travel has dubbed Jackson Hole Airport the best “tiny airport” in the United States, beating out second-place Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.

“When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by breathtaking views of the Teton Range,” Tuesday’s post on the travel website said. “And when it’s time to go home, you’ll be sent off by the same gorgeous mountainscape, but this time you’ll be taking them in from the gate area while you’re hunkered down in deep, leather chairs and basking in the glow of a roaring fireplace.”

Fodor’s did not specify what constitutes a “tiny airport,” so it’s tough to say how long Teton County’s rapidly growing airport will qualify for the category.

Also on Tuesday, Jackson Hole Airport released its plane traffic numbers for the month of May, and they showed a 58% increase in commercial activity over the same month a year before. Year to date, passenger numbers have increased 21% over record-breaking 2018.
