What to Expect

Guam Airport (code: GUM) has a single terminal with three levels: Concourse, Arrivals and Departures.

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 guide below or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.
