Terminal and facilities

The small terminal has a check-in area where the airlines have their representatives for check-in and baggage services. The baggage claim area is a small room which does not have a baggage belt. When the bags are ready to be returned to their owners, a garage door is opened and the bags come down a small ramp. There is currently construction underway to make the terminal bigger and more modern. The Airport Apron has eight parking spots for Cape Air's Cessna 402. There are also four larger parking spots for the Jetblue E190, US Airways CRJ-200 and Saab 340, Delta CRJ-200 and Continental Dash 8 Q-200. More spots are available if needed. Most of the parking is reserved for general aviation aircraft. Across from the terminal, there is a cargo facility where some of Nantucket's imports come in.

Aircraft spotting

The south beaches of Nantucket are great for photos and plane spotting. The Runway starts about 100 yards from the beach. Runway 6 arrivals directly overfly the beach at low altitudes.
