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.
Spending the night at the airport

San Jose airport operates with numerous flights, both domestic and international, so movement is often constant. Although terminals are open 24 hours a day, layover passengers will have to remain in the public area once the security control closes for the night. It is not a very comfortable place to rest. It is recommended to have a sleeping bag or blankets.

Where to rest: Terminal A is more comfortable, as there are padded seats and carpeted areas that offer a little privacy, for example in the Meet & Greet sector, above the check-in area, and between the terminals. Another option (by paying or with a credit card that provides the service) is to make use of the airport's VIP lounges, where you can access more amenities. The only problem is that they close at night. There are also hotels in the vicinity that operate shuttle services.

Baggage: There are no luggage storage offices, so you will have to keep your baggage with you until check-in.

Eating and drinking: As businesses close at night, the only options for a layover are vending machines.

Restrooms: Showers available only in the VIP lounge.

Wi-Fi: Free and unlimited.

Other services open around the clock: ATMs, children's play area, nursing rooms, massage chairs.
