Sunport: Best cultural center in ABQ?

December 28, 2007

The Denver Post hearts the Sunport. A recent travel piece in the Post touched all the normal tourist destinations, but completely lauded the Duke City’s airport:

To race through the Sunport upon arrival would be to miss one of this country’s coolest airports. Check out the art, 113 permanent pieces in all, as well as the small display of old black-and-white photographs of the Sunport from more carefree times. Even the Southwestern-style seats at the gates, the lounges and computer workstations (convenient power strips line the elevated tables) are fantastic, and note that Wi-Fi is free throughout.

Architecturally, the Sunport completely encapsulates local style. Sure, it may not have the grandest restaurants, but I’m glad local eateries like Garduño’s and La Hacienda have a presence. Art work and advertisements are well balanced. The free Wi-Fi — super bonus points. Nice job, Sunport.

    Gosh, I miss having to walk in the underground tunnel to Gate 7, or whatever it was thirty years ago, that spit you out onto the tarmac in the blistering heat. The Sunport has come a long way.

    Seriously, I’m thankful we have such a gorgeous, easy breezy airport. I’ve been in a lot of airports and our Sunport is one of my favorites.
