Staying overnight at the airport
Where to rest: Even though there are accommodations connected directly to the terminals or in the vicinity, not all passengers are willing to pay for one night when their flight leaves early in the morning. It is possible to spend the night inside the airport, as it remains open 24 hours a day, although shops close after midnight and they only begin to open after 6:00 am. Both terminals have seats with armrests, so you will have to sleep sitting down or on the floor. The exception is the waiting area near gates A81-83, which has comfortable lounge chairs, as well as the chapel in Terminal 1. One of the coffee shops on the first floor of Terminal 1 has more comfortable benches. Terminal 1 is larger than 2, and the latter also houses flights from EasyJet, so the seats are often occupied. Inside Terminal 1 there are also several VIP lounges for passengers with a bigger budget. Keep in mind that these close at night.
Eating and drinking: There are only some vending machines available throughout the night.
Luggage: The left-luggage desk closes at 10:00 pm and reopens at 6:00 am. Therefore, if your flight departs early in the morning, you will have to carry all your bags with you until you can do the check-in.
Restrooms: Showers are only available in the VIP lounges.
Wi-Fi: Inside the airport, there is a free and unlimited service, although at a slow speed. If you want more speed, you can get a premium plan by previous registration or by paying for a package.
Other services available around the clock: Baby care facilities, children playgrounds, ATMs.
In the Departures area of Terminal 1, near entrance 12, there are sleeping capsules from ZZZleepandGo, while the Sheraton Milan Malpensa Airport Hotel & Conference Center has direct access to Terminal 1 and the MOXY Milan Malpensa Airport is situated directly in front of Terminal 2. In the surroundings, you can find several alternatives, some of them with shuttles to and from the airport.
