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 Belem Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small, modern single-terminal international airport with clean facilities and pleasant atmosphere.
    LOTS of 24-hour shopping and dining options!
  • Drinking water from springs, pleasant temperature in the terminal and peace and quiet at night.
  • WiFi is available. See WiFi in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • Airport seating consists of two-seater metal benches or lightly padded individual chairs with armrests, not exactly comfortable for sleeping on. Have a travel mattress or sleeping bag handy, and head up to the quieter upper level as suggested by some of our reviewers.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are sleep rooms inside the airport and nearby hotels. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

  • According to one reviewer, the airport’s restaurants are very expensive. If you feel safe leaving the airport, there is a village with cheap restaurants and beer about ¾ mile away, as you head towards the main road.

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.
