| I travel quite a lot with work so get to experience lots of different airports, some good some bad, but this is the first time I have felt compelled to write a review of one. I'm originally from Northern Ireland and am fiercely patriotic so it is with a heavy heart that I find myself about to be very critical of the "international" airport. However after 7/8 business trips to NI in the last 3 months I keep seeing the same problems with the airport. My first criticism is the queues to pass through security, they are by far the longest in all the domestic airports that I would use. On my last flight I counted 13 security with one scanner open, surely it doesn't take 13 people to operate a line! Most were chatting with each other. This however is not my main criticism, it is the general disrepair and cleanliness that makes transit through the airport a very poor experience. A few years ago the airport spent a few quid and updated the loos in the departure and arrivals areas. I'm not sure how often they get cleaned but the frequency needs to be increased, as every time I visit there is loo roll on the floor, blocked lavatories, filthy urinals, water all over the counter top and floor. They also need to speak with Starbucks on how often they clear away the rubbish from the tables as it is rare I don't have to clear a table to sit down. It is clear that the airport is either struggling, or airports worldwide have decided not to invest. None of the USB ports in the cafe area work, vending machines are often empty, and when it is busy there are few places to find a seat. The choice of shops is also very poor, do you really need 2 shops selling NI merchandise? And they all seem to shut about 9pm! I could go on, but all I really want is for NI to give us an "international" airport that I could be proud of. My advice would be to fly into George Best if possible.
