A guard was placed to watch us and every three hours our passports and tickets were checked. I placed mine by my head to avoid being woken up for each check- which sort of worked. - HelloCat
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Chūbu Centrair International Airport.
What to Expect
- This T-shaped international airport resides on a manmade island. Domestic flights are handled on the northern side of the airport, while international flights are handled on the southern side. A wide variety of interesting shops, eateries and services are available, including a 24-hour convenience market!
- Free WiFi is available. See Airport WiFi in the airport guide below.
Where to Sleep
- Try the Arrivals Hall, for slim, but comfortable bed-length benches. Have a sleep mask and earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones to block out those bright airport lights and annoying overhead announcements!
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
