Spending the night at the airport
Although the terminal is open around the clock, passengers wishing to spend the night inside the airport will have to remain in the public area once the security checkpoint closes. Anyway, there are not a lot of comfortable spaces to rest.
Where to rest: Most seats are uncomfortable, therefore passengers generally opt to sleep on the floor. Having a sleeping bag or blankets is recommended. An alternative is to access the business center on the second floor, next to the ticket counters, for a quiet place. In addition, different hotels nearby provide transportation to and from the enclosure. Inside the terminal there is a VIP lounge, but it is only available for the military.
Baggage: There are no luggage storage offices inside the airport, so you will have to keep your baggage with you until check-in.
Eating and drinking: As shops close at night, it is necessary to acquire refreshments beforehand.
Wi-Fi: Free and with no limit.

Other services available around the clock: ATMs, chapel, nursing rooms.
