This ugly block is straight out of Stalin's era although a new terminal is going up alongside. The old one is tatty. Two gates A & B. A few little shops a bar and no smoking inside. VIP's are called earlier than other travellers and in my case to a different gate. Keep your eyes peeled. I tried my Skyteam Platinum card on the VIP gate and it worked. The VIP lounge plumbs new depths. Seedy styling and furniture with a peeling linoleum floor and no smoking there either. And you have to pay for everything even a coffee but the range of food and drink is quite reasonable. Still we did get our own minibus to the aircraft and we got on first. To be fair the folks around the place are friendly enough.
