PBIA opened in 1936 as Morrison Field and was used by the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II. It was dedicated as an international airport in 1948, although the military continued to use it through 1962. The airport now serves more than 6 million passengers annually and was voted third-best airport in the United States and sixth-best in the world by Conde Nast Traveler magazine readers in 2014.
The airport serves 160 daily flights via more than a dozen airlines, including Delta, JetBlue and Southwest, and offers nonstop service to more than 25 destinations, with connecting service to dozens of others worldwide.
It has four levels of parking options/rates at the seven-story parking garage built in 2006, plus a free cellphone lot for those picking up arriving passengers.
PBIA has created an almost stress-free environment from offering free WI-FI to passengers, free charging stations to help you stay connected, and for those that are traveling with their furry companions, they offer two secure pet stations for your pet to recharge, relax and play.
There are dozens of shops and restaurants in the main terminal and its two concourses which make lay-overs much more tolerable. They even have a Spa and a Putting Green to help you relax in between flights! Deals on destinations in Palm Beach County are also available through its website at www.pbia.org.
