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 Nantucket Memorial Airport.

What to Expect

Nantucket Airport 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. We have no reviews from travellers who have passed through here. If you’ve visited this airport, write a review to help future travellers!

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.
