Miami airport (MIA)

 Spending the night at Miami international airport?

For those passengers whose flight is delayed or rescheduled, or if they have a connecting or departing flight early in the morning, the airport terminals are open 24 hours a day. However, some sectors of the boarding area close at night, so if you wish to spend the night in that area, you have to make sure to leave or enter the right place before it closes. It is suggested to have an eyemask and earplugs, as inside the enclosure there is a lot of movement even at night and it can get pretty noisy. When flights are cancelled due to inclement weather, the airport staff can provide with a sleeping cot.

 Where to rest?

The most suitable place for resting is the boarding area. Passengers will need a boarding pass to access the area. If you are not able to make the check-in, you will have to remain in the public area, where the seats are scarce and you will probably have to lay on the floor. It is always advisable to have an eyemask and earplugs to isolate yourself from the noise and the lights. Another option (by paying or with a credential providing the service) is to make use of one of the VIP lounges, where you can access more amenities and privacy, bathrooms with showers, etc. Some of the lounges located in Terminal 1 are open all night. For a longer rest, and if your budget allows it, the airport has some hotels. Different options are listed below.

 Is there 24 hour left luggage service?

No. On level 2 of concourse E there is a luggage storage service available from 5:00 am to 9:00 pm, so if you have not checked in yet, you will have to spend the night with your bags on your back.

 24 hour eating and drinking options

A few fast food stands in concourses D, E, F and J are open 24 hours a day.

 Is there any place at Miami Airport to take a shower?

There are showers inside some of the VIP lounges.

 Is there free Wi-fi internet access?

A free Wi-Fi internet access is available and there are several connecting points in different areas of the terminals.
Other services available around the clock: ATMs, baby changing facilities, children's play area.
