In this section you will find traveller airport reviews as well as our West Palm Beach Airport Guide with info on WiFi, lounges, facilities and services....and yes, even the names of some airport hotels in case you decide that sleeping in the airport is not for you!

The only thing I would ask for would be all night food and longer couches!

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 Palm Beach International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small airport with three concourses (Concourses A, B and C) and limited shopping and dining options
    After airport restaurants and shops close for the night, vending machines are the only in-airport snack option. Plan ahead and purchase your food and drinks before the concessions close.
  • 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.
  • There is a common seating area next to California Pizza Kitchen, almost near Concourse C, that has chairs, short couches (love seats) and long benches.
  • Overhead announcements go on all night (less audible from the common seating area). Have earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones to ensure a good night’s sleep!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport that provide free airport shuttles. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

  • Economy class passengers can find comfort in one of the lounges that are accessible with a day pass or Delta Sky Club membership. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.
