I told them my situation but they said they couldn’t let me stay inside for security reasons but they would let me go inside if I ever had to go to the bathroom. – laberintoon2 (2015)

Airport Review

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Bermuda Airport.

What to Expect

Bermuda Airport has a small, slightly outdated terminal that primarily handles North American routes. A new terminal is currently under construction, with expected completion in 2020. Departing passengers bound for the U.S. will clear security and customs before boarding. Amenities include one landside eatery, three airside restaurants, and a few shops, including duty-free. WiFi is available in the departures areas. Economy class passengers can pay to enter an airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for location and access information.

Where to Sleep

Though the airport is technically open 24 hours, travellers are not permitted to spend the night, so you’ll have to camp elsewhere. For uninterrupted sleep, hotels are nearby. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.

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.
