Gdansk Airport Guide
In this section you will find traveller airport reviews as well as our Gdansk Airport Guide with info on WiFi, lounges, facilities and services....and yes, even the names of some airport hotels in case you decide that sleeping in the airport is not for you!
The big problem with this airport is the fact than it is active for 24 hours. The planes land and depart even at 2 and 3 AM, so there are loud announcements, and a lot of people around." -te24
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 Gdansk Lech Wałęsa Airport.
What to Expect
- A clean and modern international airport with a recently-built main passenger terminal (Terminal 2) and an older terminal only partially in use for some departure gates (Terminal 1). A small variety of shops and restaurants are available in the airport, but they close at night, so have some food and beverages handy for a late night snack!
- WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.
Where to Sleep
- Reviewers overwhelmingly praise Gdansk Airport for being airport sleeper-friendly. In the main hall, there are plenty of sofas and armchairs that can be pushed together at night and arranged into a comfortable “bed”. After 11:00PM, the lights are dimmed and the overhead announcements are turned off. Regular airport security patrols provide a safe environment for airport sleepers, with one reviewer remarking that despite nearly a hundred passengers sleeping in the airport that night, there seemed to be no security issues at all.
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
Good to Know
- Economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport’s first class lounge. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.
