Spending the night at the airport

If your flight is late, or you have a long connection wait, or if your flight leaves early in the morning, Brussels airport remains open 24 hours a day and some services are available during the night.

Where to rest: As there are not many late flights, it is usually pretty quiet at night. The Departures area is the best place, with several comfortable seats to stretch your legs, and also sofas to lay down. The Schengen area has many comfortable benches and mobile charging points. In addition, near the duty-free shops and transfer zone B, there are several good spots for resting. Having earplugs handy may be a good idea, as sometimes there are delayed flight arrivals. For a better rest, you have the Sheraton hotel right in front of the terminal, and other nearby accommodations with shuttle service (free in some cases). Another option is to access the VIP lounges by paying at the door or with different memberships. You have to take into account that they usually close at 9:00 pm and reopen at 5:00 am.

Baggage: Lockers are available on the ground floor and in the shopping area, so you can forget about your bags until check-in.

Eating and drinking: Inside Pier A, there is a Starbucks that stays open throughout the night.

Wi-Fi: The airport has free and unlimited Wi-Fi access.

Other services available around the clock: Medical emergencies, ATMs, children's play areas, baby changing facilities.
