Spending the night at the airport

Being open 24 hours a day, you will be able to spend the night inside Fort Lauderdale airport, staying in the public area of the terminals once the security controls close at night. Keep in mind that the air conditioning is strong and cleaning is carried out at night inside the enclosure, so it is recommended to have something warm and earplugs.

Where to rest: Most seats have armrests, but you may find more comfortable couches in the baggage reclaim areas and in the car rental centre, and the check-in area of Terminal 2. Inside terminals 1 and 2, there are VIP lounges with more amenities, but they close at night. There are no hotels inside the airport, but many accommodations in the vicinity offer complimentary shuttle services.

Baggage: Left luggage service in terminals 1 and 3, from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm.

Eating and drinking: Currently, there are no options open during the night.

Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.

Other services available around the clock: ATMs, lactation suites.
