"an airport to avoid"

(Netherlands)

Unverified | First time user of Eindhoven for a WizzAir flight to and from Sofia. In addition to the ratings below some other remarks: Signs to the airport in the larger airport surroundings are not clear. Parking, despite a booking, is troublesome. Luggage self check-in: after queuing out of order (out of paper) security check: only 50% of available lanes in use despite enormous number of passengers waiting. Passport control: very slow and detailed check of every passenger's ID. From lounge to plane: resembles a slaughterhouse: long lanes with high fencing; waiting in the rain. In short: an airport to avoid in future!

"toilets are not working properly"

(Netherlands)

Verified Review | Prima luchthaven, echter, Wat mij steeds weer verbaasd is dat de heren toiletten in de hal niet goed functioneren en dat reparaties wekenlang uitblijven. Toiletten lopen over, urinoirs zijn kapot, water loopt over de vloer. Het grondpersoneel stelt zelfs dat op meldingen ook van hen niet of nauwelijks wordt gereageerd. Directie schaam je. Prime airport, however, What I am surprised is that the gentlemen's toilets are not working properly in the hallway and that repairs remain for a long time. Toilets run over, urinals are broken, water runs over the floor. The ground staff even states that reports are not or hardly reacted to them. Management is ashamed of you.

"departure was a nightmare"

(Denmark)

Verified Review | Arriving was fine but departure was a nightmare. It took an hour and half to get to the gate from arrival because of: immense queues everywhere, staff said they would help but did not. Staff lied. We are not going to be departing from this airport again.

"this is a real Mickey Mouse airport"

(Netherlands)

Verified Review | If you are used to Schiphol this is a real Mickey Mouse airport. Unprofessional staff, not enough seating, the security staff so unprofessional. I fly twice a month from Schiphol due to flight times for the first time from Eindhoven (and the last) the security staff made me take off a necklace this never happens at Schiphol. I heard the female security guard laughing with her colleague that she had made me take it off, she didn't see that I was behind her. Disgraceful! Avoid this airport if possible.

"wonderful small and easy airport"

(Netherlands)

A wonderful small and easy airport. Big enough for the European flights and half an hour from home. Clean toilets and the flights are departing on time. When you enjoy you morning coffee you see the airplanes in front of you, Check-in is very quick.

"virtually no self service kiosks"

(Netherlands)

Verified Review | Beware: there are virtually no self service kiosks if you are traveling with carry on only at Eindhoven Airport. I was to fly with Transavia with no luggage and was unable to check in via my telephone. There are no official employees for a Transavia at the airport. The staff who check you in for your flight claim to not be with a Transavia.

"perfectly nice little airport"

(United Kingdom)

Not sure why this gets so many poor reviews. Perfectly nice little airport, decent facilities and no gate more than 5 mins walk. Seating was comfortable and the cafe served me quickly with perfectly good food. I can imagine that at very busy times the facilties could get stretched. It does need a proper lounge, can't understand why it doesn't.

"dedicated to low cost airlines"

(United Kingdom)

Eindhoven is a small airport dedicated to "low cost" airlines. There are no piers or buses you walk to and from the aircraft along metal fenced footpaths that guide you to where you need to be though some gates. You tend to be queuing for your departing aircraft the moment the inbound aircraft wheels touch the runway which is fine unless it is raining. There are 2 Baggage Belts in Arrivals. Arrivals Hall is at one end of the airport buildings which open out on the Bus Station where you can buy tickets from a machine and get buses to Eindhoven / Amsterdam and elsewhere. Various shops in the landside part of the airport including Dutch themed souvenirs and a café. There is a Viewing Area on the 1st floor Landside which gives a view of the apron and runway and doubles as the Smoking Lounge. Check-in is on the ground floor at the far end and then there is Security Screening with both Priority and Regular lanes. You get pushed through the shopping and into the rather small Departure Hall. There are 9 gates in total each with a Priority Queue and regular queue. Gates 7, 8 and 9 are for non-Schengen Flights and have Passport Control before opening to a very small holding area with small café and toilets. It can get beyond busy if 2 flights are going together such that the queue for Passports can take 25+ minutes and leads to some stress. Overall you get what you expect from an airport dominated by Ryanair and WizzAir.

"could be done better"

(Netherlands)

Eindhoven Airport is a small airport near Eindhoven. The airport's cleanliness is good. Everything else could be done better. More seats on both the air and land-side of the terminal. A better organized security check. Longer queues for the gates. Clearer gate-signs.

"a horrible experience"

(Norway)

If you can get in and fly away immediately from Eindhoven airport, then I am sure it is all fine. But if you have to stay any longer it becomes a horrible experience. The waiting hall is incredibly crowded during midday, to the point where moving around is not possible. No water fountains, but you can buy it for a price even higher than wine at the duty free shop. There is no noise cancellation anywhere, and no lounges. The sound will guarantee you a headache. They do not sell ear plugs here either (I double checked). But on the plus side, the paracetamol is only slightly overpriced, and the bathrooms are ok.
