AGA Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Agadir Al-Massira International Airport.

What to Expect

Agadir Airport (code: AGA) has one small terminal, with a waiting room divided by domestic and international destinations. Facilities include a few eateries and shops, both landside and airside, though none stay open 24 hours. WiFi is available to help pass the time.  For added comfort, economy class passengers flying to an international destination can pay to enter the airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for its location and access information.

Sleeping in Agadir Airport

On the Agadir Airport website, they say “There are no hotels at the airport or in the near… so sleeping at the airport is a good option”. Our readers do not report this as the most comfortable night’s sleep, but some of them have spotted a few nooks where, with a bit of luck, you may get a bit of rest.

Locations & Seating

According to a reader, most benches have armrests. However, a few cushy benches the size of a ‘narrow single bed’ were spotted outside the baggage claim area. This could be a great place to spend the night as you will also find some charging stations. The arrival area also features a few benches without armrests where to lie down. Come prepared with a travel mat or inflatable mattress to make the floor more tolerable.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.

airport hotelsAirport Hotels

There are no hotels within walking distance of Agadir Airport. If sleeping in the airport sounds like a nightmare, your best option will be to stay in a hotel in Agadir, but these will not offer free shuttles to the airport before your flight, so opt for a taxi.

Taxis are easy to find all over Morocco. They are very cheap and work with taximeters. Always ask your driver whether the taximeter is workingbefore your trip to avoid scams.

sleeping on chairAirport Conditions

If you plan to spend the night at the airport, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Temperature – Arrive prepared, just in case. It’s better to have a blanket than to need one later on. Even a hoodie provides extra warmth if the terminal gets colder.
  • Lighting – Even though a reader said that the lights are turned off during the night, make sure to come prepared with eyeshades or something else to cover your eyes, such as a shirt or towel.
  • Noise – Some readers reported announcements during the night, while others said the cleaning staff can be quite noisy. Bring noise-cancelling headphones or earplugs to minimise noise.

alertSafety & Security

We have not had any reports of safety or security issues at AGA. However, when travelling, it’s always best to keep your wits about you, and if you’re not feeling safe, let airport security know. Sleeping in any airport can include a certain level of risk, especially when travelling alone. It’s important to take certain precautions to ensure your safety and the security of your valuables. Here are a few tips:

  • Safety First. It’s a good idea to know where the security office is located and look for video cameras where you plan to sleep. You can also ask the security personnel for advice on the safest places to spend the night.
  • Don’t Seclude Yourself. If you’re travelling alone, we recommend you stay near other travellers or close to security. This will help you feel more secure and deter potential thieves.
  • Hide Your Valuables. It’s also important to hide your valuables. Don’t leave them out in plain view, as this could make you a target for theft. Additionally, if you are a deep sleeper, you may want to padlock your bag to something or sleep with your bag up against a wall to make it harder for someone to access zippers and pockets. We have received reports of sleepers who woke up without their phones and laptop bags. The travellers were left with just their headphones and laptop bag strap.
  • Stay Alert. It’s best to stay alert and awake if you feel unsafe or uncomfortable. Drink coffee or other caffeinated beverages to help you stay awake, and remember that you can always catch up on sleep during your flight. These simple precautions can help you enjoy a safe night at the airport.
