Overnight layover guide. Sleeping facilities in the public zone or boarding area

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport

Auckland airport is made up of two terminals, of which only the International Terminal is open 24 hours a day. To avoid bothersome noises, it is recommended to have headphones or earplugs. In addition, temperatures can descend considerably, so have a sleeping bag or blankets ready.

Where to rest: There are some benches with no armrests, but they are few. The best place is the second floor of the International Terminal and gates 34-50, with quieter and more secluded areas. The enclosure has several VIP lounges, but they close at night. In addition, next to the International Terminal, there is a hotel.

Baggage: Left-luggage service available, but only during flight hours. Lockers on the ground floor of car park R.

Eating and drinking: There are currently no stores that are open 24 hours a day.

Restrooms: Showers in the Arrivals Halls and the VIP lounges.
