 Spending the night at the airport?

Terminals are open 24 hours a day; therefore, passengers stranded because of a cancelled flight or that have a connection or departure early in the morning can choose to stay at the airport and in that way avoid extra expenses in hotels and transfers.

 Where to rest?

The boarding areas (both in the National Terminal and in the International Terminal) are probably the best for resting. As many of the available benches have armrests, and if you find all comfortable seats occupied, you will have to resort to the floor as an option. It is always recommended to have an eye mask and earplugs, as there is usually maintenance work being done. If you have to lay on the floor, it is good to have a blanket or a sleeping bag, since it can be pretty cold. Passengers with a pass for the VIP lounges can enjoy more comfort. Some of them are even open 24 hours a day. Those with a bigger budget have the alternative of staying at a hotel, inside or in the vicinity of the airport. Some of the accommodation options are detailed below.
