Around 4:00 am Security shift change occurred and the woke us all up and kicked us out.
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 Burlington International Airport.
What to Expect
- A tiny and homey two-floor airport with two concourses (North and South) and limited facilities.
- There are relaxation areas to unwind and meditate. Check out the Skyway and the Green Roof!
- After airport restaurants and shops close for the night, vending machines are the only in-airport snack option. Be sure to purchase food and drinks before the concessions close.
- The airport provides free WiFi. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.
- Reviewers who spent the night here usually did so due to late arrival of incoming flight.
Where to Sleep
- After security checkpoints close for the night, passengers are restricted to landside only. Passengers sleeping airside will be required to go back to landside until security reopens, and will need to clear security again to re-enter.
- According to one reviewer, sleeping in the airport seems to be at the discretion of airport security. Some travellers claim to have been kicked out of the airport at closing time or in the very early morning.
- Rocking chairs, couches, loveseats, and benches are available upstairs on the 2nd floor. One reviewer described sleeping in BTV as “probably more comfortable than sleeping at a friend’s”. Have a sleep mask and earplugs handy to block out the bright lights and any noises that may carry through the night!
- Baggage claim has comfortable benches and nearby power outlets
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport that provide free airport shuttles. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
