Antigua Airport Guide

Whether you have a layover, overnight sleepover or you are just quickly passing through, our Antigua Airport Guide is a great place to start planning your visit.  Here, you’ll find information on services and facilities available inside the airport – including details about airport lounges, WiFi, mobile charging points, lockers, 24-hour food options, nearby hotels, and everything in between.

Airport Overview

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 about their time at Antigua Airport.

What to Expect

Antigua Airport has one small but modern terminal. You’ll find a few shops and eateries, though food concessions may be quite expensive and none are open 24 hours. More affordable eateries are located within walking distance of the airport.  Free WiFi is available to help pass the time. For an upgraded layover, economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for its location and rates.

Where to Sleep

If you’re looking to sleep, the seats have armrests, so the carpet on the first floor may be your best bet. A blanket or mat will provide extra comfort. Do expect security guards to wake you and check for ID and boarding pass if you are spending the night. For uninterrupted sleep, hotels are nearby. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.

Good to Know

The Antigua Athletic Club, located across the street from the airport, offers a full gym, swimming pool, lockers, showers and a restaurant.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.
