Spending the night at the airport

Fort Myers airport is open 24 hours a day, but most facilities are closed at night. In addition, layover passengers will have to remain in the public area, as the security checkpoints close at night. It is recommended to have earplugs or headphones so the announcements do not bother you.

Where to rest: Benches inside the terminal are pretty uncomfortable, as they are either made of wood or they have armrests. This is why it is ideal to have blankets or a sleeping bag and lay on the floor. In this case, it is best to go to the ticketing area, which is darker. There are no hotels inside the airport, but several accommodations in the surroundings offer shuttle services for their guests.

Baggage: The terminal does not operate luggage storage offices.

Eating and drinking: Eateries close at night. Have some snacks ready in advance.

Wi-Fi: Access is free.

Other services available around the clock: Nursing room.
