Sunport Amenities

mother’s nursing room

We know traveling can be stressful, especially if you’re traveling with little ones. That’s why we have the Mother’s Nursing Room. While the new permanent nursing room is beiing built as part of the Dream of Flight terminal renovation, we have a temporary space for this amenity. Currently located at Gate A5, this peaceful and private room provides a comfortable space for nursing and changing.

As of mid-June 2024, the temporary room will be relocated to the south end of the secure exit corridor. Look for signage  just after the TSA checkpoint screening lanes. It will be to the left of that area.

pet relief room

The Sunport has a full-service indoor service animal relief area, located at gate A7, and two outdoor relief areas located outside of the baggage claim level on both the east and west ends of the building. The indoor relief room is complete with a beautiful view of the Albuquerque Bosque, synthetic grass and a fire hydrant to create a comfortable environment for your service animal/pet. 

While all traveling animals are welcome to use the relief area, preference is given to service animals.

meditation room

Guests, travelers, and employees at the Sunport who wish to spend some quiet time away from the hustle and bustle are welcome
to use the Meditation Room. The Albuquerque Aviation Department recently renovated and furnished the space with beautiful features. Although no formal worship services are scheduled on a regular basis, this space is used from time to time for religious services. View on Terminal Map

observation deck (closed for renovations)

Have some time to kill before your flight boards? Try gazing through the 1,750 square feet of glass at our observation deck. It offers views of all three of the airport’s runways, so you can watch planes soar into the sky, appear out of nowhere and touch down. All that nature has to offer to the east, south, and west also can be seen. It provides a peaceful and more quiet space with the entertainment of the airfield. A plaque mounted on a railing in the 2,500-square-feet deck says: “Dedicated to the children of Albuquerque. May the eternal wonder of flight cause your imagination to soar.”
