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 Lubbock Airport.

What to Expect

Lubbock Airport consists of a small, two-story terminal that serves mostly regional destinations. Amenities are limited to a few eateries, a newsstand, and free WiFi.  There are no pay-to-use lounges.

Where to To Sleep

If you are staying overnight here, take note that the airside area closes until early morning. You will need to leave the secure zone and spend the night in the public area of the terminal.  Good sleep spots are limited, so bring an extra layer to cope with the hard floor. For uninterrupted sleep, several hotels are located nearby. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.
