IPC 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 Easter Island Airport (code: IPC).
What to Expect
Easter Island Airport has a tiny, outdated airport that has connections to Chile and Tahiti. Facilities are limited to a small cafe, so you may want to eat before arriving. Free WiFi helps pass the time. There may be a small VIP lounge, but we have no further details.
Sleeping in Easter Island Airport
The airport is only open from 10:00AM until the day’s last flight, so it is not possible to stay the night here. Due to its size and limited seating arrangements, sleeping here during operational hours is not likely. You would be better off sleeping outside the terminal. Have a backup plan if you’re planning to spend the night. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info or read some traveller reviews for more tips.
