Airport Hours

The airport closes for a few hours in the middle of the night. As of our last overnight review in September 2015, passengers inside the terminal are not kicked out. If you arrive at the time the airport is closed, you won't be allowed in until the terminal opens. Unfortunately, we do not currently have the exact hours of the terminal closure.
