Spending the night at the airport

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.
