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
Sal airport is a quiet place to spend the night if you have a flight early in the morning.
Where to rest: You can find long rows of benches with no armrests where you can lay down. Inside a separate building there is also a VIP lounge with more amenities and privacy, although it closes at night. On the other hand, some of the hotels in the island offer shuttle services for their guests.
Baggage: There is no left luggage service available. This means you will have to keep your bags with you until check-in.
Eating and drinking: The terminal has a few options, but these close at night.
Restrooms: Showers only inside the VIP lounge.
Wi-Fi: Free access.
Other services available around the clock: Currency exchange bureaus, medical clinic.
