Spending the night at the airport
Des Moines airport is open 24 hours a day, so you will be able to spend the night inside the enclosure if you have a flight early in the morning. Keep in mind that you will have to remain in the public area once the security checkpoints close for the night.
Where to rest: Many of the seats have armrests, but there are more comfortable benches in the check-in area. If you have a sleeping bag, you can lay down in the carpeted area located by the baggage reclaim hall. Passengers wishing for a longer rest can arrange their transfer directly with one of the nearby hotels.
Baggage: The terminal does not operate lockers nor left luggage services.
Eating and drinking: During the night, the only available options are vending machines.
Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, nursing pod, water fountains.
Many of the nearby hotels provide courtesy transport for their guests, and reservations can be made via a complimentary phone in the baggage reclaim area.
