PIU 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 Piura Airport, also known as Capitán FAP Guillermo Concha Iberico International Airport.
What to Expect
Piura Airport (code: PIU) has a small, older terminal that handles flights to and from Lima. Despite its size, you’ll find two eateries and a few shops. WiFi is available inside the airport lounge, which economy class passengers can pay to enter. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for location and access information.
Where to Sleep
The airport closes nightly, from 9:00PM until 7:00AM, so overnight stays are not possible. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer free shuttle service. 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.
