Sleeping in Airports

Moscow Zhukovsky Airport Guide

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

In anticipation of the 2018 World Cup, a series of new regulations are being implemented to promote “good behaviour”. Travellers will now be fined 100 to 500 rubles for violations such as: using the airport for accommodations (that’s you, airport sleepers!), clogging the airport, blocking the passages, riding the airport trolleys, and listening to music without headphones. Explore our airport guide below for sleep and layover alternatives.
