Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (IATA: BZN, ICAO: KBZN, FAA LID: BZN) (Gallatin Field) is located in Belgrade eight miles (13 km) northwest of Bozeman, United States, in Gallatin County, Montana. Owned by the Gallatin Airport Authority,[1] it became the busiest airport in Montana in 2013.[3]

The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a primary commercial service facility (more than 10,000 enplanements per year).[4] Federal Aviation Administration records show that the airport had 442,788 passenger boardings (enplanements) in calendar year 2013,[5] 434,038 in 2012 and 397,870 in 2011.[6]

History[edit]

In 2011 a terminal expansion designed by Prugh & Lenon Architects opened, adding three gates and more retail concessions.[7] The firm designed expansions and renovations made in 1995 and 1997.[8]

Gallatin Field was renamed Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport in late 2011 to associate it with Yellowstone National Park.[9] International flights have been allowed since 2012, after a U.S. Customs and Border Protection facility opened on July 1. The project was funded in cooperation with Signature Flight Support and the Yellowstone Club. In 2013, BZN surpassed Billings Logan as the busiest airport in Montana for passenger service with 879,221 passengers from June 2012 to May 2013.[7]

In 2017 the airport had 76,223 aircraft operations, an average of 209 per day. General aviation accounted for 73% of operations. Air carrier operations accounted for 15%, air taxi operations accounted for 12% and military operations accounted for <1%. At that time, there were 359 aircraft based at BZN, 260 single engine, 24 multi engine, 41 jets, 23 helicopters and 11 gliders.[1]
