Welcome to Visit Augusta GA blog

Augusta Regional Airport

I know it sounds weird, but I love my airport. And at my house it is a fun trip every time we go, so I thought I would write about it.

The Augusta Regional Airport is serviced by three airlines – Delta, US Air and American. Love this. The airport got a fantastic face lift in 2008. So it really is a new airport, but still feels like a great hometown airport.

In my house it is an adventure because this is where we get to see big planes and pick up Gigi (my mom) and YaYa (my sister) when they visit from Florida and New Jersey. Easy connections and good flight schedules make Augusta an easy trip for them. Yes – this is a picture of my kids in pajamas at the airport. But even if it is past bedtime, there is really nothing that will keep them from going to the airport.

Another thing I love about my airport is the fabulous Augusta Visitor Information Center, right in the heart of baggage claim. Here you can pick up a visitor guide, calendar of events or map. And check it out…You can have your picture taken in front of a replica of the Augusta National Golf Club’s 13th Hole. Awesome!

So don’t think I am weird because I want to write about my Augusta Regional Airport. Think I am weird because we have an airport song we sign every time we go. “Going to the airport, airport.. Going to the airport, airport…..”

Augusta's Airport

I saw Augusta through my dad’s eyes!  He flew in from New York City and I picked him up from the Augusta Regional Airport.  He was really impressed because the last time he was here it was the old airport (Augusta’s airport was recently renovated).  In his words we “moved up in the world”!  I guess I took the airport for granted since I do not visit very often.

Also, I knew Augustan’s were friendly because it was one of the things that sold me on Augusta when I moved here back in 1995. The attendants at the airport were all very friendly and helpful.  We were out of there in no time.  His bags came out immediately – no problem.  When we got to the car and went to leave the attendant in the booth was very pleasant – “Have a wonderful visit to Augusta” she said.
