Below are the air carriers servicing the airport. I'm including their phone numbers, as well as their baggage claim numbers for your convenience.
One note about baggage claim at RIC. In all the times we've flown in and out of the airport, I can't ever remember having to wait more than a 10 minutes (at most) for our lugguage. Wow! Can you say that about the major hubs? So you'll be one your way that much faster.

Another nice thing about RIC is its size and simplicity. There's only one terminal, so you won't have the hassle of trying to figure out which terminal to go to. Plus, once you're in the terminal you won't be out of breath by the time you get to your gate!
The airport offers a major bookseller/gift shop, as well as several food options. The restaurants, and their locations in the terminal, are as follows:
What we like to do is pick up a bite to eat to go, then take it to the end of Concourse B (we always seem to fly out of there). We get a seat at the end of the concourse and let the kids eat while seated at the window so they can watch the planes take off on the runway. Keep 'em busy before the flight!
