A great reason to live and work in the Lehigh Valley is that we have our own international airport! Lehigh Valley International Airport has to be one of the most delightful airports to use for business or personal travel. No long lines, pleasant security personnel, and a lot more! Here is some information from their website as to what sets them above and beyond other airports:

Uncrowded.unhurried.sophisticated, without the stress. Relax in the lounge. Enjoy a snack or fast food at your gate. Or browse the newsstand and gift shop. Wherever you roam, the Flight Information Displays will keep you informed of your flight’s status.

Assistance for People with Disabilities

Sensitive to the special needs of customers, LVIA provides both physical and practical amenities for travelers with disabilities. This includes skycaps to assist passengers upon arrival and departure, handicap accessible parking spaces in each lot, ramps to planes, a wheelchair ground transport to assist passengers who are traveling on a commuter flight, wheelchair-height dining tables and wheelchair accessible restrooms. And, with prior notification at the time of reservation, we can accommodate special equipment and service animals on board.
