Airport Overview

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 Ashgabat International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small single-terminal international airport with a variety of shopping and fast food options.

Where to Sleep

  • The area in front of the Turkmenistan Airlines office is the best place to sleep. Due to the many early and late night domestic flights, there are usually other passengers sitting or sleeping in this area, so you won’t feel alone. Benches are plentiful here, and the area is seemingly safe.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
