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 during their time at Richmond International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small two-level airport with two concourses (Concourse A and Concourse B) and a good variety of dining options
  • The airport provides free WiFi. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • After security checkpoints close for the night, passengers are restricted to landside only. Passengers sleeping airside will be required to go back to landside until security reopens, and will need to clear security again to re-enter.
  • Check out the Business Center, located on the 2nd floor near the Ticketing area. Access is unrestricted, and the room usually quiet and empty.
  • One reviewer slept in the corner near the entrance doors, across from the Ticketing counters.
  • Due to the uncomfortable seating available in the airport, all overnight reviewers slept on the floor in various areas of the terminal. Have a travel mattress handy for added comfort!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport that provide free airport shuttles. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
