Kazan International Airport review by T De Jong
29 December 2007 Customer Rating :
Flew in on a domestic flight (from Moscow SVO) and exiting the aircraft, getting luggage and leaving
the airport took no longer then 15 minutes. No checks at all though (due to it being a domestic
flight I guess). Because of those 15 minutes I didn't get a chance to check the airport in itself.
During departure though, we needed to wait for 20 minutes in the terminal, or, what you can call a
terminal! Had a small bar and some seating areas. There was 1 TV broadcasting a russian soap and
that was about it. Coffee was good though; and again boarding the aircraft was relatively quick.
It is definitely not (as also stated in another review) a place you want to stay for hours. Luckily
boarding and exiting goes really fast and I had no problems at all doing both. Overall impression is

Kazan Airport has two terminals but T2, a square shaped building some
50m from T1 seems to be used mainly as a VIP facility. Terminal 1 is a
small rectangular building, with separate sections for international and
domestic services. Most likely it is the international section you will
encounter on the regular LH service from FRA that arrives / departs in
the very early morning. To say that Kazan has few facilities for
departing passengers is rather an understatement, a preliminary baggage
scan leads immediately to a few check in desks, and a very short walk to
immigration control, and a further scan for hand baggage. In the small
waiting area there are some hard seats in a small waiting room and a
bar. The business lounge has a few soft seats, a fish tank, and a
television. Drinks here, even coffee, are to be paid for, nothing is
free, apparently. There are no shops, banking or change facilities at
departure. They bus you the 20m to the aircraft, of course. On the plus
side, this very small facility is a pleasant change from the corridors
of FRA, but not a place to linger, to arrive too early or any place to
be delayed either. It is a reasonably long way from the city, but linked
by a good road so it does not take very long to travel to the city. At
that hour of the morning the roads are empty also. The domestic area,
from one glance, does not seem to have much to offer either.

Arrived via DME from LHR and MAN with S7 airlines and same route return.
Probably the fastest ever transit through an airport I have ever
experienced, even if it is only a small provincial one. Had to return
the day after I arrived, and with the assistance of friendly, helpful
staff, collected my late luggage. All in all, a great little airport ,if
a basic one.
Airport by David Pryer
I flew in on Lufthansa's twice weekly flight via Samara no February 1st. They are the only
international carrier. Apart from immigration refusing to acknowledge the computer generated form
from the Russian Federation's London Embassy (which meant I had to fill one in by hand) everything
was fine. I was in and out of the airport inside half-an-hour.
