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
Glasgow airport operates with many flights and connections. Therefore, movement is usually constant, even during the night. Have headphones or earplugs ready.
Where to rest: On the second floor of the main terminal there is a food court with comfortable benches, as well as near the supermarket situated in the public area. As for Terminal 2, there is carpeted floor in the ticketing area. Another option (by paying or with a credit card that provides the service) is to use one of the VIP lounges, where you can access more amenities and privacy. The only problem is that they close at night. There are also a couple of hotels in the vicinity of the enclosure.
Baggage: You can leave your bags in an office located in the check-in area, but only between 5:00 am and 8:00 pm.

Restrooms: Showers available in some of the VIP lounges.
