Sharm el-Sheikh Airport Reviews

there are too many nois, but it's normal for a big airport. There're everything you need!!
- Fabrizio Defant

Bello anche se un po' disordinato, con pochi negozi e scarsamente dotato di sistemi di chiamata per il volo (urlano per chiamare il volo)
- Fabrizio Defant

Staff was very pleasant, but the food loaded in Sharm el-Sheikh was disguting. Nice view on descent.

- Krzysztof Grajzer

Very poor airport in the domestics area. Just a cafe. Taxi drivers hike up fares 10x.
- Andy P

Having been before I wasn't expecting anything amazingly special from Sharm el-Sheikh when returning. Although they rebuilt terminal 1, terminal 2 (the original terminal 1) still stands. Although they're currently carrying out renovations, the terminal itself is old and dated. Check-in was relatively simple with our bags being checked into the 'fast lane' due to queues. Security can often feel rushed and confusing due to the hustle and bustle nature of the airport. All Non-Egyptian flights are required to fill out a departure visa so bare this in mind. The departure lounge was also dated with a few - recently updated - duty free shops. There are around 2 places pick up a drink or a bite to each, which, for the size of the terminal, isn't really enough. Also be aware that the No Smoking rule isn't really obeyed within the terminal.
- Morgan Perry

When we landed from the UK , it was around dinner time. The queues were short and we was out of the airport in 35 mins. Plenty of Taxis available too. However when we left the airport to fly home , the queues were ridiculously long. A member of staff kept on letting other travellers in front of us which was a catastrophic idea. Masses of people jammed into one area. The Terminal was very crowded too
- Mason

Airport was fine but it did have a lot of very annoying flies within the terminal. the security check was also very lacking of professionalism. Overall a good experience. Would recommend using the duty free shopping as the prices of liquor and shisha are very low compared to other places.
