Melbourne Airport Mini Guide

What is Melbourne in Florida Like?
Whilst off the usual tourist trail, Melbourne has plenty for the visitor to enjoy during a stay there. The city is on the Space Coast and is within an hour of Cape Canaveral and the space museums and exhibits there. For those wanting to be at arm’s length from Disney World but still within reach if they want to visit, Melbourne is ideal, less than two hours away. Other attractions locally are the Florida swamps over which it’s possible to get hovercraft safaris and there’s also the local history in Henegar House and the Liberty Bell Museum. The city is also close enough to the coast to allow for some days on the beach too.

How do I get to Melbourne?
Melbourne has its own airport, billed as international, although it currently only accepts internal arrivals if you exclude the flight to Freeport in the Bahamas. The airport is only just over a mile from the business district of the city which makes access to the city really quick and easy. Any overseas passengers wishing to arrive at Melbourne currently have to fly to Atlanta and get a connecting flight.

What is the Airport Like?
The airport is small and blocky, a little like a power station building, but has interesting features such as an aviation museum inside the terminal. It’s set out a little like most US airports with a concourse leading to the main terminal building through security.

What can I Expect When I Arrive at Melbourne?
Once you’ve disembarked, it’s a short walk to the entrance to the concourse and on to security. From there you’ll be straight through into the terminal building ready to collect your bags. The terminal is very simple to navigate with all the facilities visible from when you exit security. The information desk is directly ahead of you should you need help or advice and the car rental desks are found just behind information. There, you can complete any final paperwork before collecting your car. Public transport information can be obtained from the information desk and if you need dollars in a hurry, there’s an ATM in the atrium.

What About on the day of my Departure?
Complete the check in procedure and then spend a bit of time in the public area having a bite to eat at the slightly kitsch Runway Grille. If you’re still hungry after passing through security, its sister, the Runway Café, offers hot drinks and light snacks. The only shops at the airport are a small newsstand which also sells a limited amount of snacks and drinks and a gift shop selling mementos of your stay in Melbourne. If you want to shop online though, the airport does offer free Wi-Fi. To kill some time, visit the airport museum which details how the airport was used in World War II as a prisoner of war camp for Germans.
