Sleeping in Airports

Daegu Airport Guide

Whether you have a layover, overnight sleepover or you are just quickly passing through, our Daegu 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.

I must say the benches are nice, flat, and ideal for sleeping. It is a bit bright in the departure area upstairs, so if you are so serious for a nap, go to the arrivals area. – Travel Bum

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 Daegu Airport.
