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 Chinggis Khaan International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small single-terminal international airport, with limited shopping and dining options.
  • Free WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • Departures areas are the way to go in this airport! International departures is said to be quieter than the domestic departures area, which has TV’s on at night, but reviews are mixed on whether an airport tax has to be paid to enter the area. Either way, there’s plenty of armrest-free bench seating, and almost no foot traffic in either area, so have earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones handy and enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep. Bring a sleep mask and travel blanket for added comfort and relaxation!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
