Thessaloniki Airport Reviews

★☆☆☆☆
Getting to the airport is cheap (2 euro for bus) but it was full and there were two secuirity guys that seemed like they were night bodyguards. Check in terrible!!! I had to wait 20 minutes in the check in lane. I was lucky because there were not many people flying.Then I had to get my checked bag to the control. I spent there 40 minutes. And then the control more 30 minutes. It is a small airport. During the rush hour it is not working so well. Toilets were clean! There is also a small but nice DUTY FREE shop. But for food only one place that I wait more 15minutes to get a sandwich and water. They have at least free but slow wifi connection (I think for one hour).
- Nicolas

★★★☆☆
I totally understand that the city of Thessaloniki does not need a huge airport, but I somehow expected more of it. It is just a regular airport and I feel like I am going to forget it sooner or later. But the service was okay.
- Ludmila Borosova

★★★☆☆
Small airport, in need of improvements. It is organized a little bit better than the past but there is no space. Big queues. It was very clean at least and flights on time.
- Nicolas

★★☆☆☆
Poor airport. Checking in baggage is a nightmare. PAssing security also. Plan at least 1.5 hours ahead.
- Jim Badanis-Kapirnas

★★★★☆
Thessaloniki airport could be better and bigger because is a to smal airport for Thessaloniki, getting to the airport is easy and you can find a lot of TAXIs or you can take the line bus to go ,the security check was slow and some passengers was complaining that they will may lose their boarding , I was wetting 20 minutes least to pass the security check because they had only thre check dors tow for normal passengers and one for fast pass oassengers , but the check was efficient and fast when it was my turn ! The terminal facilities are so pure but they have an free Wi-Fi for an houre which you can connect to it easy and fast ! Food and retail services was good but not a lot of shops only one good coffee shop in the airport , looking SKG flights I spot that they are some interesting flights from and to this airport ! The check-in was fast (10 minutes total) . The baggage claim was near the plane not so fare and the baggages arived fast .
- Davide Messinis

★★☆☆☆
Very boring and small airport. There is nothing you can do to entertain yourself. Also if you are waiting for your night flight after midnight be prepared that nothing will work until around 7AM. The only good thing I could mention is the WiFi connection.
- Anastasia

★★☆☆☆
My suitcase was my loyal companion for more than 10 years until I found it with broken wheels and handle on the airport in Thessaloniki. Here I probably found the worst personnel ever.
- Anastasia

★★★☆☆
Good small airport, everything was close to each other. Surprisingly, very little or no security at the entrance to the airport. Lots of people were smoking right at the entrance and nobody seemed to care about it. This was extremely annoying, like we needed to pass through a gas chamber on our way in. Immigration was extremely slow when arriving in the country (we arrived from outside the EU, so that the entire plane needed to go through immigration check). Immigration on the way out was quick. Passengers are transported to the plane by bus.
- Alex

★★★☆☆
Makedonia-Thessaloniki airport is a relatively small airport for the number of flights its serves. You should plan to arrive well ahead your departure time since the check-in process can take quite a bit. After you've been handed your boarding card and your luggage has been weighed you have to drag it yourself for security screening. Although the x-ray-screening agents are doing their job right it is another queue you have to line up. After that you have to line up for the security control which should take overall 20 minutes with queuing. Passing security you will find yourself in small united gate area. (Note if you leave for Non-EU destinations you have to pass an extra passport control) There is a kiosk, a fast-food and duty free which is quite nice and with a great range of products. Unfortunately there are only 2 small monitors for the flights and you have to pay attention to the announcements that are made. I didn't like that sometimes you couldn't distinguishing what they were saying. When it is time to be boarded -there are no bridges, so only bus transfer- you have to queue on a single line because there is only one scanning machine at each gate. This is inefficient since a) it is a small unified gate area and it can get messy with other passengers departing from the nearby gates and b) the whole process is delayed because only one agent can scan your boarding pass (a workaround was to open a second gate if available). Priority boarding is announced but there is no distinction when it is about time since there is no extra line and the agents seem not to be worried much about (e.g. looking out for). You have to push yourself at the front. But this is of no use since you are only to get first in the bus where you have to wait until it is full and ready for the 1 minute drive to the aircraft. This is a nice situated airport which has great potential but there is still a lot to be done in terms of efficient ground handling and processing.
- George DGeorge

★★★★★
It's very convenient to get to the airport with a bus even at night! The road takes about 40mins, and the airport is small, but convenient.
