Bangor International Arrivals & Departures

Despite being in the northeastern corner of the United States, Bangor isn't exactly in the middle of nowhere, as some people might think. In fact, the city is well-connected to the rest of the world, thanks to Bangor International Airport, Interstate 95 and U.S. Route 1A.

Air


Bangor International Airport brings Bangor to the world and the world to Bangor, with more than four dozen scheduled flights daily.
Converted from the former Dow Air Force base in 1968, Bangor International Airport is a major refueling and customs stop for European flights into and out of the United States. Served by major U.S. carriers Northwest Airlink, Delta, American Eagle, U.S. Airways, and Continental, Bangor International offers more than 70 flights daily. The airport is recognized by the airline industry for its well-kept runways during harsh winter storms. While Boston's Logan Airport and New York's La Guardia and JFK airports may be closed during a violent snowstorm, Bangor is usually open for business and accommodating hundreds of overseas travelers.
