Sleeping in Airports

Lome Airport Guide

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

Everything is rush but tolerable and people are civil but dont expect duty free to be open even at night when 3 or 4 international flights are leaving, but its an OK, safe airport – a traveller

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 Gnassingbé Eyadéma International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small single-terminal international airport with limited shopping and dining options.
  • Boarding announcements done by shouted voice only, so in case you don’t hear the announcement, pay attention to lines forming at the gate around the expected time of departure of your flight.
  • One reviewer described this airport as one of the most efficient airports in Africa, with speedy and hassle-free handling of departing, arriving and transiting passengers.
