Sleeping in Airports

Bagdogra Airport Guide

Whether you have a layover, overnight sleepover or you are just quickly passing through, our Bagdogra Airport Guide is a great place to start planning your visit.  Here, you’ll find information on services and facilities available inside the airport – including details about airport lounges, WiFi, mobile charging points, lockers, 24-hour food options, nearby hotels, and everything in between.

The airport gets around 12-14 flights a day and it cannot cope at all if there are boarding/arrival of three aircrafts at one time. – a guest reviewer
