Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, 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 close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
The airport is open 24 hours a day, so you will be able to spend the night inside the enclosure with no problems. It is recommended to have headphones, earplugs and a sleeping mask so that the lights and loud announcements do not bother you.
Where to rest: Most seats inside the terminal have armrests. However, you can find some benches with movable armrests in the boarding area, in addition to more comfortable couches next to some of the food stores. Another option (by paying or through different memberships) is to enter one of the VIP lounges, which have more amenities and privacy and open 24 hours a day, although the maximum stay is 3 hours. On the other hand, there are several accommodations nearby.
Baggage: In the Arrivals Hall there is a luggage storage office that operates around the clock.
Eating and drinking: Available options inside the terminal close at night.
Wi-Fi: The access is only pre-paid.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, currency exchange bureaus, first aid clinic, pharmacy, baby changing facilities.
The ISG Airport Hotel is located 3 minutes away from the terminal. Some alternatives nearby have shuttles for the transfer of their guests.
