PONTA DELGADA AIRPORT customer review :  4 October 2013 by Travois Sevla    (USA)

Rating : 10/10





Much, much improved airport. Good facilities before entering the security area and good ones afterwards too. The airport and the region more airlines to offer more competition and better prices, but PDL can't do anything about that. There is also a restaurant on the second level. Too bad that the view is into the terminal and not over the runway. That would be great. Also, big planes can now come to the terminal. Passengers still walk on the tarmac and during the winter - that can be a challenge.

PDL has been improved, at least before security. On a recent flight out of PDL to BOS, the departure lunge was incredibly hot and steamy. There are a few amenities, but waiting for a flight in the heat and humidity made an end to an enjoyable trip very unpleasant.

A lovely little airport. Everything is within easy walking distance of everything else. With so few flights, there is none of the stress associated with the main European hubs. Arriving and leaving, security and luggage collection is all very quick and easy. Even walking to the car rental pick up point is only a two minute stroll.

A neat and tidy airport with adequate and very clean facilities and helpful (SATA) staff who even when under pressure due to a cancelled flight and two delays, were helpful and friendly. The airport is small but even with two flight movements did not seem crowded.

Good airport located in Ponta Delgada, Sao Miguel, Azores Islands. The main terminal is about five years old and quite spacious. There seem to be amenities for waiting passengers to help pass the time. SATA Air Acores is the main tenant with inter-island flights, as well as domestic, and international flights. PDL still has one walk on the tarmac to the smaller aircraft for boarding and disembarking. Larger aircraft park across the runway and passengers have to take shuttle buses to the terminal. This can be problematic if the weather is bad or passengers are in some way disabled. I have walked down slippery stairs to have to wait under the wing for a shuttle bus. That can be a nuisance. Customs and immigration are fast, as well as baggage delivery.
