Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all regular services and hours may be subject to change. Thus, if the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are close to boarding.
Spending the night at the airport
Punta Arenas airport is open 24 hours a day and is a safe place where to spend the night. This is why it is common to find passengers sleeping inside the terminal, while they wait for their flight departure.
Where to rest: There are many benches inside the enclosure. If all of them are ocuppied, the floor on both levels offers ample space where to lay down, although level 1 can be quieter. The terminal's VIP lounge is open throughout the night, but keep in mind that the maximum stay is 6 hours. On the other hand, inside the city, you can find different types of accommodations.
