SLA 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 Salta’s Martín Miguel de Güemes International Airport.
What to Expect
Salta Airport (code: SLA) has a small, modern terminal that connects to several South American destinations. Amenities are limited to a few eateries and shops, though none are open 24 hours, so plan ahead if you’re staying the night. 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
Overnight campers likely have no problem here. Try the cafeteria, which closes for the night, and push together a few chairs. Bring a sleeping bag or travel mat to lie on the floor, which is mostly uncarpeted. For uninterrupted sleep, hotels are nearby. 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.
