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 Juneau International Airport.

What to expect

Juneau International Airport consists of a small terminal with gift shop, restaurant, bar, café and market. WiFi is available to help pass the time. There are no private lounges at this airport.

Where to Sleep

Reviewers report that airline staff and security are generally accommodating to overnight sleepers. While most of the terminal seating consists of armrest-style benches, there are a couple of padded benches in the baggage claim area. There also may be some comfortable couches in the gate area. One reviewer noted that there is a quite nook near the commuter flight company offices that works for floor sleeping with a travel mat and sleeping bag. Due to continuous feed of public service announcements, earplugs/noise-cancelling headphones may help for a quieter sleep. For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

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.
