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 King Hussein International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A tiny single-terminal international airport with a shop, a cafe and not much else!
  • Travelers who spend the night here usually do so to catch an early flight.

Where to Sleep

  • There’s really only one place to sleep in this tiny airport, and that is on the floor in the landside waiting area. Have a travel mat or sleeping bag handy for added comfort!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

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.
