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 Rzeszów Airport.

What to Expect

  • The current terminal opened in 2012, and currently offers flights across Europe.

Where to Sleep

  • It seems that the airport closes by midnight, and reopens around 4am. A reader (July 2018) tells us that he arrived before midnight and security allowed him to stay overnight. Plan ahead as this may not always be the case.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport but none provide airport shuttle service. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

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.
