 Spending the night at Mexico City airport?

Mexico City Airport is open 24 hours a day, so passengers who have a connecting or early morning departure flight have the option of spending the night in one of their terminals.

 Where to rest?

The most suitable place for resting is the boarding area. Passengers will need a boarding pass to access the area. If you are not able to make the check-in, you will have to remain in the public area, where the seats are scarce and you will probably have to lay on the floor.

Another option (by paying or with a credential providing the service) is to make use of one of the VIP lounges, where you can access more amenities and privacy, bathrooms with showers, etc. Some of the lounges located in Terminal 1 are open all night. For a longer rest, and if your budget allows it, the airport has some hotels. Different options are listed below.
