Airport Overview

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

What to Expect

Dominica Airport has a small terminal that connects to several Caribbean destinations. Facilities are outdated and basic, but at least you’re surrounded by the lush rainforest. Bring your own snacks, as there are no eateries or shops. Free WiFi helps pass the time.

Where to Sleep

The airport closes nightly from 11:00PM until 6:00AM, so it is not possible to spend the night here. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service for a fee. 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.
