What to Expect

WiFi is available in two airport lounges (and one has showers), which economy class passengers can pay to enter. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for location and access information.

Sleeping in Sultan Airport

Overnight campers recommend heading to the international baggage claim area. There are a few metal benches and a secret couch behind the tourist information desk that you can try to grab. Otherwise, you’ll wind up resting on the floor, which is sometimes dirty, so bring a sleeping bag or travel mat. For uninterrupted sleep, hotels are nearby, including one in short walking distance. See our Airport Hotels section below for locations, or read traveller airport reviews for more tips.
