Is this idea genius or something that will waste time and resources at the Bozeman Airport? 

Business at the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport is booming. The airport has seen a massive increase in passengers over the years, the airport has also expanded its parking lots, improved the concourses, and more. We found one more service that could be an excellent money maker for the airport that won't take up a lot of space or resources.

I am proposing for the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport to install a coat check kiosk. Why would this be successful? Here are my thoughts. 

Montana has long winter months, and many locals travel to sunnier, warmer spots. The problem with traveling out of Bozeman during these months is that you must dress for Montana's weather, and you probably won't need a heavy-duty jacket wherever your final destination might be.

By having a coat check, you can leave your winter coats and jackets in a secure location and pick your jacket up after you are back from your trip. It's essentially like leaving your vehicle in the parking lot. 

Would this be a successful idea? According to The Points Guy, the Milwaukee Airport has been running a coat check program for four years with great success. People can check their coats for either $2 a day or $10 for the whole trip. They also offer to check your gloves or other winter apparel while you are on vacation.

Why would this be a good idea? It would be a solid little money maker for the airport and offer a nice service for many of us who travel during the winter. No one wants to take a heavy-duty Carhartt Jacket on a vacation to Mexico. 

What do we think? Do you think this would be a welcome addition to the Bozeman Airport, or is this a royally dumb idea? Let me know.
