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
Edinburgh airport is open 24 hours a day, but keep in mind that it is bright and noisy, so it is best to have a sleeping mask, headphones or earplugs.
Where to rest: In the Arrivals Hall, and especially next to the baggage reclaim area, there are some benches with no armrests, as well as in some of the coffee shops. Another option is the car rental facility, which has comfortable seats. The VIP lounges close at night, but they provide more amenities. On the other hand, several hotels in the surroundings offer shuttle services.
Baggage: There is a luggage storage office in the terminal annex, but it operates from 4:00 am to 10:00 pm.
Eating and drinking: The only available options during the night are the Costa and Starbucks coffee shops.
Wi-Fi: Free for 2 hours.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, baby changing facilities, children's play areas, prayer room.
You can find several accommodations nearby and in the city centre. Some of them provide complimentary shuttle services for their guests.
