FAT 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 Fresno Yosemite International Airport.
What to expect
Fresno Airport (code: FAT) consists of a small, partially renovated terminal with a couple of eateries and shops on both sides of security. WiFi is available and outlets for charging mobile devices can be found. There are no private lounges at this airport.
Where to Sleep
After security checkpoints close for the night, all passengers are restricted to the landside areas, and must re-clear security the next day when the checkpoints open. While we have not received any information about seating options, there are reportedly some sleeping nooks near security. If you intend to spend the night in this airport consider bringing earplugs/noise-cancelling headphones to drown out the constant music and announcements from the PSA system. For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the guide below or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.
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. For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
