Sleeping in Warsaw-Modlin Mazovia Airport

Locations & Seating

Armrest-free bench seating is plentiful throughout this single terminal, but you’ll be lucky if you can grab a seat, thanks to crowds of travellers coming and going. If not, stretch out on the floor in private nooks, but bring an extra layer, sleep mat, or sleeping bag for much-needed cushion.

Travellers have specifically mentioned an area on the landside to the right of the check-in counters, where a few massage chairs are located.

Rest Zones

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

Airport Conditions

If you plan to spend the night at the airport, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Temperature: Expect the airport to cool down at night, with air conditioning running and fewer people inside.
  • Noise: Even as overnight flights slow down or stop entirely, the airport may still run announcements, and cleaning crews may make the rounds, so anticipate some noise.
  • Lighting: The airport may stay bright thanks to around-the-clock lights, but certain corners may be dimly lit.

Arrive prepared! We recommend earplugs or noise-cancelling headphones, an extra layer of warmth, eyeshades, or something else to cover your eyes, such as a shirt or towel.

Security & Safety

Airport staff seem to tolerate overnight sleepers, but you may have to sleep landside if your flight isn’t until the early morning.

At the time of this update, we have no reports from travellers commenting on safety issues at Warsaw-Modlin Mazovia Airport.

However, sleeping in any airport can include a certain level of risk, especially when travelling alone. It’s important 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. 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 woke up 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 awake, 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.
