We often receive mail from readers who have similar questions, so we have put together these FAQs to help you find the answers you are looking for:
Am I allowed to stay overnight at the airport?
In terms of whether you are “allowed” to sleep or stay in the airport overnight, we do not answer this question, simply because we are not representatives of the airport. Additionally, security or airport officials may change their rules or ask you to leave at any time without notice. If having permission to stay in the airport would make you more comfortable, you should contact the airport directly, but chances are they will most likely direct you to book a hotel instead.
Landside refers to the area of the airport that is BEFORE you go through security ie. the public area, ticketing/departures hall & arrivals area.
Airside refers to the area of the airport that is located AFTER passing through security ie. boarding gates & transit area.
