Jinan Yaoqiang Airport
Jinan Yaoqiang Airport customer review
Review by Christian Kober (China) 20th July 2013
Stuck in Jinan airport due to plane delay. Jinan airport on first impression is bright and modern. Yet among Chinese airports it surely must be rated as one of the worst. Passport check was quite inefficient and slow. This due to the security check which not only had very limited space meaning that passengers pile up waiting and bags pile up when leaving the x-ray. The check was unusually strict. As a frequent business traveller I always carry the same items yet here my bag was searched quite a bit and resubmitted for check. Once behind security there were limited facilities. Heating had been switched off so the airport was freezing cold. The coffee shops were simply disgusting with respect to their hygiene while the coffee was amazingly overpriced. Unlike most other airports in China Jinan does not provide free Wifi rather a fee version. Seating became rapidly limited as delays piled up. Lounges are quite grotty as well. No interesting shops at all. Try avoiding this airport.
