GUM 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 Guam International Airport.

What to Expect

Guam Airport (code: GUM) has a single terminal with three levels: Concourse, Arrivals and Departures. The airport features several different airside eateries and a couple of retail outlets and duty free. WiFi is available at some of the eateries and in the airport lounges. Economy class passengers can pay to use one of the airport lounges. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below.

Sleeping in Guam Airport

guam airport guideThe airport has cushioned seats and wooden (unpadded) benches.  Landside, the benches with the least amount of noise (and people traffic) are the ones beside the outrigger canoe in the check-in/departure floor.  You’ll find more in the Arrivals area as well.  Airside, carpeted areas are available at empty gates, but bring earplugs/noise-cancelling headphones as the airport is described as loud throughout.  For uninterrupted sleep, there are several hotels within paid shuttle distance of the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Coronavirus Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. If you have some time to spare please write a review, send a tip or share photos to help future travellers.

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.
