The convenience of using smaller, regional airports is unbeatable. Avoid the crowds and delays at large commercial airports and get closer to your end destination. Additionally, these smaller airports often offer easier parking options and shorter security lines, allowing for a smoother and less stressful travel experience overall. Furthermore, flying through regional airports can sometimes provide unique opportunities to explore lesser-known destinations or to experience more personalized service from airport staff.
