Spending the night at the airport
A busy airport that opens 24 hours a day, with most services concentrated inside Terminal 1. Because of the traffic, it is recommended to have earplugs or headphones if you decide to spend the night inside the enclosure. If your flight is cancelled due to inclement weather, the airport staff can provide you with sleeping mats and blankets, for which you will have to enquire with your airline.
Where to rest: On the mezzanine floor of Terminal 1 you will find two quiet areas with carpeted floors and seats without armrests. In the public area, however, options are scarce. In the observation deck, for example, there is much less traffic. Terminal 2, on the other hand, is smaller, and therefore quieter. The VIP lounges of Terminal 1 offer more amenities, but they are closed at night. For a longer rest, further down you will find a list with a few hotels nearby.
Baggage: There are lockers in concourses C and F of Terminal 1.
Eating and drinking: The only options that stay open during the night are located in concourses D and F.
Restrooms: Restrooms available only inside the airport spas.
Wi-Fi: Free for 2 hours.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, business centers, quiet rooms, children's play areas, baby changing facilities, pet hotel.
Many of the nearby accommodations provide complimentary shuttle services for their guests.
