GOJ Airport Overview
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down of what to expect during your time at Nizhny Strigino International Airport.
What to Expect
Nizhny Airport (code: GOJ) consists of two terminals: T1 is older, and T2 opened in March 2016. Both are currently in operation while the airport decides how to divide the current airlines occupying the airports. Amenities and things to do are limited, but you will find WiFi and a few airport lounges. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for locations and rates.
Where to Sleep
We do not yet have any sleep-related airport reviews. For uninterrupted sleep, there is a hotel within walking distance of the terminal. See the Airport Hotels section below for locations 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.
