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

Although Honolulu airport is open 24 hours a day, most of the enclosure closes between 10:00 pm and 5:00 am. To spend the night inside, you will have to show your boarding pass. It is recommended to have earplugs, an eyemask and something warm for a better rest.

Where to rest: The airport staff will lead you to a designated area on the second level of Terminal 2, in lobby 4. Although it is a secure sector, seats have armrests and are not very comfortable. There are several VIP lounges around the enclosure, but these are closed at night. As for hotels, there are several options in the vicinity.

Baggage: Left luggage service in the baggage reclaim hall of Terminal 2.

Eating and drinking: A coffee shop is open 24 hours a day next to gate D1.

Restrooms: Showers only inside some of the VIP lounges.

Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.
