ACK 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 Nantucket Memorial Airport.
What to Expect
Nantucket Airport (code: ACK) consists of a small, recently renovated terminal. Regional flights operate year-round, but the busy summer season means the terminal can get very crowded. Amenities are limited to a restaurant, a gift shop, and free WiFi. There are no pay-to-use airport lounges.
Where to Sleep
The airport closes at night, so sleeping here overnight is not possible. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer free shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.
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. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021. To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.
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. For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
