Groningen Eelde Airport Reviews

Small airport with quick baggage reclaim. The aiport is a convenient alternative for Schiphol for passengers to/from the Northern Netherlands. The Airportliner shuttle bus takes only 10 minutes to Groningen railway station, the public bus (line 2) a bit longer.
- Erwin

All to expect from a small airport like this. For locals it's like travelling from your own backyard. Quick departing and arriving. Nice and cozy terminal when filled with fellow travellers. Great alternative for Schiphol Amsterdam or Bremen.
- Peter Berry Bos

Very small but friendly & clean airport with easy bus connection from/to Groningen (the journey takes ~40 min. from the Central Station by bus #2).The overall opinion of mine is positive but I'd mention 3 negative points: - I would have expected at least one more shop in the terminal building as the only one offers a very few choice of products. - I find it a bit uncomfortable that I was not let to pass the security check until the PAX of the previous flight depart. (I guess it's due to the fact that there would not be enough space for the PAX of more than one flights in terminal building). - The only restaurant offers a poor variety of food. (At least that was the case in the afternoon when my flight departed from GRQ)...
