To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Bangor International Airport.
What to Expect
- A small airport with minimal shopping and dining options.
- Layovers or cancellations are largely due to inclimate weather. Overnight stays due to flight connection times or public transportation schedules.
- The airport turns into a virtual ghost town after the last flights roll in. All airport shops and services close at night.
- The airport provides free WiFi. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
Where to Sleep
- Although the airport closes at 1:00AM, reviewers report being allowed to sleep in the airport overnight with no interference from airport staff.
- Due to the lack of armrest-free seating, reviewers that chose to stay in the airport had to sleep on the floor. One creative reviewer set up camp on airport grounds outside of the terminal.
- Loud overhead TVs and obnoxious overhead announcements continue well into the night. Have your earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones handy!
- There is a hotel connected to the airport by an enclosed skywalk. See Airport Hotels below.
Good to Know
- Blankets, pillows, snacks, earplugs and sleep mask were on the wish list for travellers sleeping at Bangor Airport.
- Shops, fast food restaurants and a grocery store are located within walking distance of the airport. A Dollar Tree convenience store is located near the airport entrance.
