Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport (IATA: PUW, ICAO: KPUW, FAA LID: PUW) is a public airport located in Whitman County in the U.S. state of Washington, two miles (3 km) east of Pullman and four miles west (6.4 km) of Moscow, Idaho. The airport is accessed via spurs from State Route 270, and has a single 6730 foot (2051 m) runway, headed northeast/southwest.
The rural airport in the Palouse region is the primary air link for its two land-grant universities, Washington State University in Pullman and the University of Idaho in Moscow. Both universities use the airport for jet charters from Frontier Airlines and Allegiant Air for their intercollegiate athletic teams. Horizon Air is the sole commercial airline serving the airport, flying Bombardier Q400 turboprop aircraft.
Facilities and aircraft
Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport covers an area of 467 acres (1.89 km²) at an elevation of 2556 feet (779 m) above sea level. It has one asphalt paved runway designated 5/23, which measures 6730 x 100 feet (2051 x 30 m).
The modest commercial terminal is a single large room, divided between pre- and post-security areas by a single security checkpoint and glass walls. The waiting area occupies all space beyond the checkpoint, but is not commonly used for waiting, as most passengers pass through the security checkpoint immediately before boarding. Both passenger gates are ground-level doors to the tarmac; passengers board via the fold-down aircraft-door stairs, or airstairs (for larger charter aircraft).
Gate 1 on the east side of the terminal is used by Horizon Air. A cat named "Dash" occupies the airport, and freely roams through the security checkpoint.
The public airport shares the runway with a fixed base operator, Interstate Aviation, which conducts chartered air service. Local engineering firm Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. owns and operates private hangers at the airport.
