JAI 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 Jaipur International Airport.
What to Expect
Jaipur Airport (Code: JAI) is a small, but clean and modern international airport, consisting of an international terminal and a new domestic terminal. The terminal is furnished with local artwork and has a few little shops and food concessions. The pre-immigration area (located upstairs) offers a variety of shops (closed at night), 24-hour dining options, a drinking water fountain, clean restrooms, and power outlets throughout. Economy class passengers can pay to enter the airport’s first class lounge. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.
Sleeping in Jaipur Airport
Although reviewers did not mention a specific sleeping spot or how they slept (floor or in a chair?), they report having slept successfully for a few hours in the pre-immigration area. For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. See the Airport Hotels section below for locations or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.
Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours. Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021. To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport 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.
