Sleeping in Airports

Odessa Airport Guide

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

Big disadvantage is that benches are hard and uncomfortable. We didn’t have sleeping pads so I don’t know if sleeping on the floor is possible. – frimerke
