Overnight layover guide. Sleeping facilities in the public zone or boarding area

Please note that some published services and schedules may be subject to change. 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 about to board.

Is it possible to stay overnight at the airport?

The terminals are open 24 hours a day, so passengers with connecting or cancelled flights may choose to stay at the airport and save extra hotel and transfer costs. However, most services cease operations at midnight.

Where to rest?

While there are more comfortable benches in Terminal 2, unfortunately, most seats have armrests, making it almost mandatory to sleep on the floor. For this, it is good to have a sleeping bag and a blanket, as the air conditioning is usually quite strong. Another option to be more comfortable is to enter one of the VIP lounges, a couple of which are open 24 hours a day (although with a maximum stay of 4-5 hours). For uninterrupted rest, there are a few hotels in the vicinity of the airport.

Is luggage storage available 24 hours a day?

There is a 24-hour left-luggage service in the customs area, so you can forget about your bags and spend a more comfortable night.

Are restaurants open 24 hours a day?

In general, food outlets close after midnight, but there are some options that remain open.

Are showers available?

Showers only in some of the VIP lounges.

Does Tocumen Airport have free Wi-Fi?
