RZE 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 Rzeszów Airport.
What to Expect
Rzeszow Airport (code: RZE) has a small but modern terminal that opened in 2012. Amenities include several eateries, a few shops, a duty-free area, and free WiFi. Economy class passengers can pay to enter an airport lounge. See Airport Lounges in the guide below for location and access information.
Where to Sleep
This airport seems to close nightly, from 12:00AM until 4:00AM, but you may be able to stay inside if you arrive before midnight. Still, it’s best to have a backup plan in case security doesn’t allow overnight campers. If you do get lucky, there are plenty of armrest-free benches and the area seems to quiet down. For uninterrupted sleep, hotels are nearby. 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.
