Catania-Fontanarossa Airport Reviews

★☆☆☆☆
Probably one of my worst airport experiences in Europe. The terminal is small and extremely crowded at both land and airside. The shops and cafes can't keep up with the demand. Queues are everywhere and free benches are hard to find. Staff at information booths and food shops are all grumpy and quite unhelpful. English is not spoken by all of them even. Despite what previous reviewers noted, I did find it easy to get to the airport by bus. Even though it's not cheap at €4 one way, the ride is quick outside of rush hour.

★☆☆☆☆
Our flight was delayed due to a known reason from FCO. We arrived and the airport was closed: no staff to help us get to points forward. No buses, no taxi, rental car offices CLOSED. We ended up spending the night in the airport. DO NOT ARRIVE LATE AT THIS AIRPORT AS YOU WILL GET STRANDED!
- Thomas Xenopoulos Pe

★☆☆☆☆
Rental car return is somewhat confusing; noticed several drivers going into wrong entrance. About a 15 minute walk to check-in counters. The upper level was mobbed with people and check in is located right next to security creating what could only be explained as organized chaos. Security was a total mess. While it was clean and tidy, the airport was clearly not built for what it is handling now. Will never fly in/out of this airport.

★★☆☆☆
no pedestrian ways to airport, slow check in, no baggage drop off before 2h before flight, no coin lockers
- Sabrina Bernhardt

★☆☆☆☆
Arrival from highway smart but difficult if without gps or sat nav;quite difficult for a non-Italian speaker. Rent -a-car park not so far from terminal but path not protected and with no clear indications.Check-in area poor,dark and without a seat.Airport is under restoration but it seems that and the end situation would not be better.Securtity checks done at a reasonable speed but staff impolite and cold;nor a "good afternoon" or a "enjoy your flight".boarding area as dark as poor as check in area.few shops and poor food area.No wifi.My consideration is that is not an airport for long stay so programme your itinerary for a quick stay :just check-in (if you have bags) and boarding.

★☆☆☆☆
There isn't enough space for the queue before the security check (on the Saturday evening that I was there) and it took over half an hour to get through by which time we had to get to our gate but, once past passport control, there was only one shop and almost no seating.
- Jim Tyler

★☆☆☆☆
Terminal is really small, crowded and not very well equipped. Information point was closed (some reconstruction works in there), food shops cannot manage the demand and there is no place to charge your electronic devices. Connection to the city center runs often (costs 4 euro one way) and is easy to use it, but other connections can be pretty complicated. We bought ticket to Syracuse and needed to wait 4 hours, because 3 buses in a row came already full and we weren't allowed to board even though we already had the ticket (with time of that first bus). There is also no way to go anywhere by foot. City center (4,5 km) and beach (2 km) are connected only by highway and there are fences everywhere around.

★★★☆☆
The airport was ok for what we needed... It consisted of a few shops like Sicilia's shop etc. The departure lounge was crowded and if you whern't on a local flight (To Italy) you have to go through another set of passport control. The customs where very organized if you have a family you can go down express line which saved a lot of time. Overall the airport was ok.
- Jack Frank

★☆☆☆☆
Too small terminal with horrible queues, I stood over an hour to check in, while in other airport with the same pax number it took only 20 minutes. One of the worst airport I have ever been.
