Bucharest Airport Reviews

So I had a connecting flight in Bucharest, and my luggage had been tagged to go all the way through to the final destination. The bad surprise (but a lucky one too!) was that when I passed by the lugage belt of my arrival flight on the way to the next flight, I spotted my luggage on there. I asked the staff why my luggage was out for claiming when it was tagged to go all the way through, and their answer (after 10 minutes of mumbling) was that you cannot automatically transfer it in Bucharest, although the automatic transfer had been confirmed during initial check-in! I had to check it in again myself (I luckily had enough time between the flights).

Very good airport, fast baggage drop-off, security and passport check, good facilities all over the place.
- Simina Sav

Traffic figures seems to grow fast. Arrival passport control area needs more desks and queuing space (4 aren't enough + there is not enough room to wait..place gets jam packed). Escalator to passport control area wasn't working either.. many steps to climb carrying a child. Maintenance seems to be lacking in some other areas as well like toilets, hanging wires, damaged floors, broken x-ray machines, dated pay for parking machines etc.. Management should walk around more often and observe(+ correct) these things.
- Cristian Pascu

The airport is ok, except the fact that the WiFi is sometimes a bit slow and is not working properly. The most horrible thing about this airport is the transport, you have very few facilities to get to the city, just two buses (780 and 783) and cabs/uber or the personal car. The transport to it is just terrible!
- Vlad

Considering Bucharest airport is their main international airport, is is basic compared to many other European airports, I recently arrived at the airport, our flight arrived few minutes ahead of schedule at 00:45 and then we had to wait 15-20 minutes on the plane for the bus to transfer us to the arrival terminal, then we had 20--30minute wait queuing for passport processing, about 200-300 passengers in passport area waiting to be processed by 4-5 passport officials, then when went to collect our baggage, the flight no or where flight came from wasn't displayed and no officials to tell us or inform us which belt our baggage was on, many of us had to locate our own baggage, I've used this airport 30 plus time over the past 20 years, and from my personal experience arriving and traveling from is a basi airport, many staff members don't seem to care, poorly organised and basic facilities, even the duty free, passengers can't use Romania Lei cash to buy duty free items, so if you don't have Euros or bebit/credit cards, you can't buy duty free items, and again, everything is over priced..
- James malloy

I've been using this airport for years, (decades) and even though airport strives, but in the duty free stores, you only can purchase duty free items in Euro's if paying by cash and they won't accept Romanian lei,
- James malloy

You have to wait one hour four your bagge. Incompetent employes! They have the most stupid excuses you ve ever heard. If you need to take another flight, make sure you have at least 3 hours between connections.
- Victor Hriscu

Security control is disastrous. At busy times, queues are more than 50m long. There is no priority queue for frequent flyers or for short connection times. If you ask security staff politely, they tell you to check that everyone in front of you in the queue is fine with you jumping ahead. The domestic departures section is really sad: one small ordinary duty-free, a tiny overly priced cafe with rubbish sandwiches, a large smoking lounge whose doors are always left open even by staff (filling the rest of the building with smoke), and no business lounge (only a VIP lounge, which is accessible only if you are accompanied by a member of staff).
- claudiu

I've used this airport countless times, airport is trying to modernise, but yet. the airport doesn't have ATM beyond security and passport checks in departures, and still, if you like to buy from duty free stores. they will only accept Euro, or debit/credit cards. and yet Romania official currency is Romanian Lei.
- James malloy

OTP is a small international airport. Ways inside the Terminal are short, and there are no long waiting times at the security and passport control. Staff is not very friendly. Several restaurants are available in the security area. There are 2 smoking areas, not including the one in the lounges.
