WRO 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 Copernicus Airport Wroclaw.
What to Expect
Wroclaw Airport (code: WRO) has two small modern terminals, domestic and international. Amenities include a few shops and eateries, landside and airside, though none are open 24 hours so plan ahead for late-night snacks. WiFi is free available in designated areas. 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
Overnight travellers report comfortable benches and couches throughout the terminals. Airport staff don’t seem to mind campers. Do bring an eye mask to combat bright lights. For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service. 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.
