Des Moines International Airport is small, with only two concourses and a few shops and restaurants. Its diminutive size makes it fantastically breezy to get through, though - you can generally move through check in and security at DSM in under 15 minutes. Most flights leaving out of this airport go through major hubs like Dallas or Chicago, but there's a wide variety of airlines that come in and out of this place. The first 45 minutes of WiFi are free, and its simple, intuitive layout means that any time you spend here before picking up your Des Moines rental car won't be boring. On the first level is the main terminal, where you'll find a food court as well as a gift shop, while the upper level with the concourses has a sit-down restaurant and a grab-and-go food shop.
Located in the main terminal, the food court at DSM has several options, including a Pizza Hut Express, a Java Coast Coffee Shop, plus an UNO Chicago Style Pizzeria and American Grill. For such a small airport, this spread is impressive - and quick. On the upper level, you'll find a full-service restaurant featuring a complete menu and fully-stocked bar. It's a great place to come, grab a beer and relax before or after a long flight, and with such short security lines, you'll have plenty of time to do it.
Iowa college gear, souvenirs, magazines, books, newspapers, snacks and more - you'll find everything here at this shop. It's best to stock up before you make your way through security at this airport, but there is no shortage of merchandise to choose from. Security lines are relatively short on your way back into DSM, so don't worry about dropping of your Des Moines rental car too early. You'll be on your way in no time!
