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 Temuco Airport.

What to Expect

The small terminal at Temuco Airport opened in 2014 and handles a few domestic routes. Facilities are basic, though we can confirm a restaurant. WiFi is available inside the airport lounge, which economy class passengers can pay to enter. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for location and access information.

Where to Sleep

It seems that this airport closes nightly, so have a backup plan if you’re planning to spend the night. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service for a fee. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info.

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.

Pay-per-use, Single Visit Passes & Lounge Memberships

Regardless of what class of service you are flying, there is a lounge that you can enter by paying at the door, purchasing a lounge pass or through a lounge membership program (ie. Priority Pass).
