Sleeping in Airports

Malatya Airport Guide

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

Queuing for check-in, it seems, is not something that proud Malatyans lower themselves to doing – it being far more manly to push your way to the front of one of the two wooden counters in one enormous scrum. -RJ

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 Malatya Erhaç Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small single-terminal regional airport with a heavy military/armed security presence and a limited variety of shopping and dining options. There’s not much to do at this airport, so bring a book or a few magazines to stay entertained!
  • Chaotic check-in procedures and double security checkpoints. Be prepared to push your way through to the check-in desks!
