Sleeping in Paris Beauvais Airport Overnight

The Paris Beauvais Airport closes every night from 11:30 PM – 6:00 AM, so you are not allowed to sleep here overnight.

Locations & Seating

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

Rest Zones

At the time of this update, there are no designated rest zones within the airport.


Unfortunately, there are no showers available to freshen up.

Food & Drink

As the airport closes at night, 24-hour food concessions are not available.

Security & Safety

At the time of this update, we have no reports from travellers commenting on safety issues at Paris Beauvais Airport. As a precaution, here are a few tips to ensure you have a safe airport sleeping experience:

  • Know Where Security is Located. Whether you are sleeping in the airport by yourself or with friends, it is good to know where security is. Know where their office is located and look for video cameras in the spot you decide to stay the night. Ask security where it is safe to spend the night. They’ve probably seen many airport sleepers before you and they will direct you to a safe spot.
  • Don’t Seclude Yourself. If you are travelling alone we recommend that you sleep near other travellers or close to security.
  • Hide Your Valuables. Don’t leave all your mobile devices out in plain view. We have received reports from people who woke up with earphones and no ipod and a laptop bag strap and no laptop bag (or laptop). Same goes with important documents and money. Keep these secure on your body, so that no one can get them without waking you up.
  • Secure Your Bags. If you are a deep sleeper, you may want to padlock your bag to something. If your bags have zippers turn the bag upside down (zippers to the floor) or sleep with your bag up against the wall, so that it would be hard for someone to access.
  • Choose to Stay Alert. If you don’t feel safe, drink coffee and stay awake and be alert. You can always sleep on the plane!

Pro-tip: If you are sleeping 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 begin to arrive for morning flights.
