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. It is always advisable to have an eyemask and earplugs to isolate yourself from the noise and the lights. 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.

Baggage: There are 24-hour left luggage services on the ground floor of both buildings, and therefore, if you have to wait to make the check-in, you can have a lighter rest without having to watch your personal belongings.

Restrooms: Showers available inside the VIP lounges of both terminals.
