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 Coronel FAP Francisco Secada Vignetta International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small, single-terminal international airport set in the Amazon. Shopping and dining options are basic, but 24-hour dining is available.
  • WiFi is available. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • Although the seating in Arrivals Hall is more comfortable, passengers desiring to stay overnight will be restricted to certain areas of the airport. Try the upstairs area near the restaurant for peace, quiet and ample floor space. Have a sleeping bag or travel mat handy for added comfort while sleeping on the floor.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
