SVQ 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 Sevilla Airport.

What to Expect

Sevilla Airport (code: SVQ) has a small, modern terminal that handles local and regional flights and serves as a hub for low-cost carriers. Amenities include several eateries and shops, including duty-free, but none are open 24 hours so plan ahead if you’re staying the night. Take advantage of free WiFi and many power outlets. 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

An 2020 review indicates that it is not possible to sleep here overnight.  Daytime sleepers will find plentiful armrest-free seating and ample floor space.  Overnight sleepers will need to stay outside the terminal (bring bug repellent) or stay at a nearby hotel.  See our Airport Hotels section below for locations or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

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.
