Overnight layover guide. Sleeping facilities in the public zone or boarding area

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.

Spending the night at the airport

The new Dakar airport is open 24 hours a day, so passengers with a connecting flight early in the morning or whose flight is delayed can spend the night inside the enclosure. Have earplugs and a mask handy for a better rest.

Where to rest: In the baggage reclaim area, there are a few benches, but you will probably have to sleep on the floor. The Departures area, on the other hand, has a few carpeted sectors if you are allowed inside. Inside the terminal, there are also a few VIP lounges with more amenities, and some of them are open around the clock. A few hotels in the city offer shuttle services for their guests.

Baggage: There are no left luggage services inside this airport at the moment.

Eating and drinking: Eateries in the terminal are closed at night.

Wi-Fi: Free access.
