Whether you have a layover, overnight sleepover or you are just quickly passing through, our Mulu 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.
The airport is carved out of the Borneo jungle so the scenery is spectacular particularly when flying in or out of the airstrip. – Mark
MZV Airport Overview
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Mulu Airport.
What to Expect
The tiny terminal at Mulu Airport (code: MZV) perfectly reflects its jungle location. Bring your own snacks and entertainment, as shopping and dining options are very limited and we can’t confirm if WiFi is available.
Where to Sleep
The airport closes daily by 4:00PM, so overnight stays are not possible. 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.
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.
