The Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) is situated 3 miles (5 kilometers) to the northeast of Allentown in the state of Pennsylvania, United States of America. Stiff competition from nearby airports that recently offered a greater selection of flights, sometimes with lower fares, has prompted the Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) to concentrate on making the passenger experience in the airport as smooth and comfortable as possible. Two restaurants and a gift shop are available within the terminal building for hungry and curious passengers as well as all the standard facilities and amenities that would be expected from any North American airport of a reasonable size. Multiple airlines operate daily direct services to the airport from domestic destinations throughout the United States and select international destinations in Canada. As a reasonably sized North American airport, service is maintained at a high standard and due to a halt in passenger growth, thanks to competition from nearby airports, passengers can expect to see relatively small queues and waiting times when arriving in Allentown by air. Passenger traffic at the Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE) in Allentown remains upwards of 800,000 passengers per year and ensures that the airport should continue to serve the Lehigh Valley area for years to come.
