Spending the night at the airport

Where to rest: The boarding areas are quieter than the rest of the airport, and they also have more seats, some of them without armrests, especially by gates 5-8. Inside the enclosure there are also several VIP lounges that remain open during the night. On the second floor of the main terminal there is a transit hotel if you wish for a better rest.

Baggage: The airport provides left luggage services 24 hours a day, so you can forget about your bags while you rest.

Eating and drinking: All options inside the airport remain open throughout the night.

Restrooms: Showers only inside the VIP lounges.

Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
