Eindhoven Airport Passenger Reviews and Eindhoven Airport Traveller Reports
EINDHOVEN AIRPORT customer review : 5 June 2013 by John Stubbs (Netherlands)|
Rating : 7/10
Proven to be an excellent local airport for travelling around Europe whilst on exchange in the Netherlands,
especially with Ryanair and Transavia using it heavily, so cheap prices guaranteed. Flown to Seville, Budapest and
Prague through this airport recently. Admittedly it is a bit of a shed, but it is apparently undergoing major
work, and has been for over a year. My advice is to do everything you want before security, because the last time
I used this airport even the Duty Free was closed for refurbishing. No airbridges or really any queues, quiet and
efficient. If there are more than two flights within a short period it gets very busy at security though.

Disorganized airport in the middle of nowhere. Currently a construction site. No air bridges, walk to and from

Overcrowded waiting rooms, lacking sufficient seat facilities. Uninterested personnel. Volume and
understandability of messages are inadequate. Unclear directions, where and when to pass the security and
customs. Together with fellow passengers we succeeded in finding out. We were called for boarding, while
the passengers of the former flight of our plane were not even yet de-boarding. So we had to queue for
another unnecessary hour. Exaggerated intimate search at the security. They seem to lack the customary
electronic equipment to detect metals at Eindhoven. The parking lot machine accepted neither Meastro card
nor chip card. Fortunately I was warned for that. Otherwise, I could have walked for another 2 Kms back to
the arrival hall for cash. Picking-up passengers is seriously discouraged. Sidewalks near the arrival hall are
supplied with yellow curbstones and crush barriers. Military police watches sharply that nobody stops for
boarding a car.

I departed from Eindhoven this year. It was a very comfortable airport. But the only
disadvantage was the airport is closed in the evening. At the flight back from Heraklion we
had delay. Eindhoven was closed when we should arrive. We had to go to Schiphol instead.

I fly from Eindhoven frequently and it really is more of a pleasure to use than bigger
airports such as Heathrow or Schiphol. It's small and check in times can be as little as 30
mins for smaller airlines like VLM, although more time is necessary for Ryanair or Transavia
as they use 737s. My only gripe is that the airport staff usually seem more concerned with
gossiping or talking on their personal phones than dealing with customers (even passport
control - I was once waiting there for 5 mins waiting for him to finish talking and he was the
only one on duty). This really lets down what is otherwise a great little airport.

Nice modern small airport with friendly staff. When it is raining, you
get very wet walking to the aircraft. Restaurant and observation deck at
first floor are very comfortable. Clean modern toilets and relaxed
atmosphere all over the terminal. Parking facilities could be improved.
Perfect bus connection to Eindhoven train station.

Eindhoven was nice. Parking in front of terminal, 1 minute walk.
Straight towards check inn. In the transit zone a good shop for food and
drinks. Enough comfortable seating in the boarding areas. Clean toilets.
No security or gun toting SWAT teams around. Very relaxed atmosphere.

If you fly out there with low cost airlines it would not be a problem if
your arrive 45 minutes before departure, everything is done in a smooth
and efficient way there.

6I just love Eindhoven Airport. It is small but very friendly and has a nice atmosphere. Good
connections to the rest of Holland (by motorway) and the busses leave regularly. Also they have a
nice cafe with a good view and you can still light a cigarette in the departure hall (under one of
those big umbrellas and in the restaurant in certain sections).
Eindhoven Airport by Fiona Fitzgerald
Eindhoven, what a pleasant surprise. The perfect size, resembles Dublin Airport when I was a child &
it was far from the dreadful, claustrophobic sprawl it is now, even before they hid the baggage
trolleys. Eindhoven is open and low-level, clean, everything within sight and well signposted. Any
instructions for vending machines and storage lockers were so minimal and clear that it was stress-
free. The staff are so genuinely pleasant and friendly it amazed me.
Smoking stations to stave off the panic, so reassuring to view through the glass partitions.
Clean comfortable seating, a really nice roof terrace from which you can watch the planes land,
plenty of room inside the air-conditioned restaurant, a reasonably-priced, varied menu, free reading
material. Train station nearby. Oh, why can't all airports be like this?
(Taxis in the Nederlands overcharge amazingly; pre-warned, I got a train-and-shared-taxi ticket
combined in the train station. At the other end, you just wait for a few minutes until two or more
people are going in the same direction & off you go at a much lower fare.)
