Overnight layover guide. Sleeping facilities in the public zone or boarding area
Basel airport is open 24 hours a day and is divided into a French and a Swiss sector. However, it's not a comfortable place to spend the night, so it's advisable to bring a sleeping bag, blankets, a sleeping mask, headphones or earplugs to ensure you get a good night's sleep.
Where to rest: The best place is the upper floor of the Swiss sector, where you can find comfortable seats without armrests. There is also a VIP lounge on the boarding level that offers more comfort, although it is closed at night. For those who prefer to stay in a hotel, there are several options nearby, some of which offer shuttle services.
Baggage: There are no luggage storage facilities inside the enclosure.
Eating and drinking: Shops close at night, so it is advisable to bring pre-prepared snacks.
Restrooms: Showers available inside the VIP lounge, but not in the public toilets.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, children's play areas, baby changing facilities.
There is no on-site accommodation, but hotel information is available in the Arrivals area, on level 2. Some options in the vicinity have shuttle services for their guests.
