Spending the night at the airport
Athens airport is open 24 hours a day and has modern facilities. It operates with many flights and connections around the globe, so movement inside the terminals is usually constant, even throughout the night. It is not very comfortable for a good rest, in addition to being pretty noisy. Therefore, it is recommended to have a sleeping bag, blankets, mask and earplugs.
Where to rest: Although the enclosure has numerous benches, these are uncomfortable to catch some sleep. You can found benches without armrests near gate B22, above the Arrivals level and in some of the fast food outlets. On the Departures level there are different VIP lounges for passengers with a bigger budget. However, these close at night and the maximum stay is usually 4 hours. On the other hand, there is a hotel in front of the Main Terminal.
Baggage: The luggage storage service is found on the Arrivals level, but it closes at night. This means you will have to keep your bags with you until checking-in.
Eating and drinking: Different options remain open during the night.
Wi-Fi: Free for 45 minutes.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, currency exchange bureaus, commercial stores, porters, baby changing rooms, first aid clinic.
