Sleeping in Airports

Maastricht Airport Guide

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

It can get really cold and windy if you wanna sleep on the concrete floor in front of the airport, can’t really recommend that. There is less wind if you sleep straight next to the entrance doors. -kriti03

MST Airport Overview

maastrict airport guideTo help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Maastricht Aachen Airport.

What to Expect

The small terminal at Maastricht Airport (code: MST) primarily handles low-cost seasonal routes. Facilities are limited to a restaurant, a bar, and a shop. WiFi is available, though it is unclear whether it’s free or paid.

Where to Sleep

Sleeping here overnight is not possible, as the airport closes nightly from 11:00PM until 6:00AM. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

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.
