Enter your card with the stripe up and to the right

I love the Albany Airport. The security lines are rarely long, except in the morning. The staff are friendly, it has free WiFi, and despite an increase in fares recently (and relatively pricier flights), it’s still my airport of choice for domestic flights.

But perhaps the most endearing aspect of the airport is the voice at the parking machines – a voice with an assertiveness and accent perfectly suited for NY. I was recently reminded how noticeable the accent is when my out-of-town relatives visited and immediately commented on the accent, not once, but twice…and without speaking to each other first.

I wish I had a recording of the voice to share, but alas, all I could find was this video of the parking garage elevator ride. I guess you watch this video if you need to ride the elevator one final time.
