Clean toilets, but the automatic flushing system tends to go crazy whenever you’re seated – so watch out so you don’t get flushed down. -Vibeke

Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Turin Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small, but modern international airport with a limited variety of shops and restaurants.
  • Inefficient airport procedures and understaffed security checkpoints. Some of our reviewers missed their departure flights from this airport and forced to stay the night due to last minute flight or gate changes that were not communicated properly to passengers. According to one reviewer, some flights do not appear on the flight board at all and changes are not updated on the flight board in a timely manner.
  • WiFi is available. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.
  • Economy class passengers can pay to enter one of the airport’s first class lounges. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.

Where to Sleep

  • If you plan to spend the night here, make sure to show up before the terminal closes for the night. Upon closing, all doors are locked, and passengers will not be let in or out.
  • Hard and uncomfortable plastic seats or the floor. All seats have armrests, so the floor is a better option if you have a sleeping bag or travel mat handy.
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport. 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.
