I can not say it is a nice and decent airport.
- Ahmet Anıl Dindar

★★★☆☆
N/A - Never got there
- Jamie Whittingham

★★☆☆☆
not much to do!
- salman

★★☆☆☆
1 - When you enter the airport, there is security; you have to empty your pockets, your baggage have to go through the x-ray machine etc. That reduces your 'freedom' at the airport. 2 - Poor air conditioning.
- Ahmad

Not my favourite airport!!!
- Richard Collard

WORST AIRPORT
- Afsal Zain

★☆☆☆☆

- Hadi Seklani

★★☆☆☆
I was trasfering in feb 2012 while most of duty free was under reconstruction, nothing to buy. Most of the electrical plugs didn't work. Stuff was not helpful at all! Apart from the airport design i was disappointed.
- Pavel Darda

★★☆☆☆
Very boring and crowded. Restrooms at departure lounge dirty and not enough ( 6 ) serving 8 gates. Chairs at sitting area not comfortable. Food and beverages are all over-priced with low quality. WiFi provided by Zain is excellent and fast.
- Aziz Saleh

★★★★★
