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 airport terminal is fairly recent, so dispositions will probably change. In any case, it is best to have headphones or earplugs if you wish for a good rest.
Where to rest: There are generally few seats, but you can find some comfortable benches next to the coffee shops. Inside the terminal there are also VIP lounges open around the clock. Keep in mind that the maximum stay is 3 hours. On the other hand, on the fifth floor is located a hotel.
Baggage: At the moment there is no left luggage service at the airport.
Eating and drinking: Available options close at night.
Restrooms: Showers available only inside the VIP lounges.
Wi-Fi: The service is free.
Other services available around the clock: Currency exchange bureaus, ATMs, prayer rooms, medical clinic, children's play area.
