Sleeping in Warsaw-Modlin Mazovia Airport

Locations & Seating

Armrest-free bench seating is plentiful throughout this single terminal, but it seems that 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 some private nooks, but do bring an extra layer, sleep mat, or sleeping bag for much-needed cushion.

Travellers have specifically mentioned an area pre-Security, to the right of the check-in counters, where a couple massage chairs are located.

Rest Zones

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

Airport Environment

At the time of this update, we have not received reports from travellers related to the overall terminal environment, such as temperature, lighting, and noise. In general, here are some good expectations:

  • 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, and eyeshades or something else to cover your eyes, such as a shirt or towel.


Unfortunately, there are no showers available to freshen up.

Food & Drink

As there are no 24-hour food concessions available, you will need to stock up on food and water before the food concessions close for the night.


modlin airport hotelsIf you prefer the privacy and comfort of a hotel room between flights, you will have to leave the airport behind.

Security & Safety

Airport staff seem to tolerate overnight sleepers, but you may have to sleep pre-Security 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. 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.
