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 Monroe Airport.

What to Expect

Monroe Airport consists of a new terminal with six departure gates. Amenities are limited to a bar and a small art gallery, though both close by early evening.  Free WiFi helps pass the time. No pay-to-use airport lounges are available.

Where to Sleep

The airport closes nightly between 11:00PM and 4:30AM, so spending the night here is not possible. For uninterrupted sleep, several nearby hotels offer free shuttle service upon request. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.
