Sleeping in Paris Beauvais Airport Overnight

Paris Beauvais Airport closes every night from 11:30 PM to 6:00 AM, so you are unable to sleep here overnight.

Locations & Seating

As an airport that serves primarily low-cost carriers, you can expect little amenities here. Seating is limited, but you’ll find some armrest-free seats. Be careful; stretching out and taking up multiple seats during a busy period would likely be frowned upon by your fellow travellers looking for a place to sit. For a real nap, join the other travellers stretched out on the floor – a blanket or sleep mat provides much-needed cushion. You’ll have to leave the airport and head to a nearby hotel for overnight sleep.

Security & Safety

At the time of this update, we have no reports from travellers commenting on safety issues at Paris Beauvais Airport. However, sleeping in any airport can include a certain level of risk, especially when travelling alone. It’s essential to take certain precautions to ensure your safety and the security of your valuables. Here are a few tips:

  • Safety First. It’s a good idea to know where the security office is and look for video cameras where you plan to sleep. You can also ask the security personnel for advice on the safest places to spend the night.
  • Don’t Seclude Yourself. If you’re travelling alone, we recommend you stay near other travellers or close to security. This will help you feel more secure and deter potential thieves.
  • Hide Your Valuables. It’s also important to hide your valuables. Please don’t leave them out in plain view, as this could make you a target for theft. Additionally, if you are a deep sleeper, you may want to padlock your bag to something or sleep with your bag up against a wall to make it harder for someone to access zippers and pockets. We have received reports of sleepers who awoke without their phones and laptop bags. The travellers were left with just their headphones and laptop bag strap.
  • Stay Alert. It’s best to stay alert and awake if you feel unsafe or uncomfortable. Drink coffee or other caffeinated beverages to help you stay sharp, and remember that you can always catch up on sleep during your flight. These simple precautions can help you enjoy a safe night at the airport.

Pro-tip: If you sleep in the public zone, don’t be surprised if you receive an early morning wake-up call. Security is known to make the rounds, waking people up as travellers arrive for morning flights.
