Kaliningrad Airport customer review
Review by Gert van Dijk (Netherlands) 9th August 2009
Kaliningrad airport is currently undergoing reconstruction so it might have improved after this review. The only way to get out of the plane is by stairs. They use one set of stairs per plane. Expect long queues at check in - usually there is only one desk per flight available. Before customs the airport has 1 bar 1 restaurant 2 souvenir shops and small chemist. After customs there is one bar and a duty free store. Prices are decent but the quality at the restaurant requires a Russian stomach in to appreciate the food. Make sure to use the toilet in the plane before landing after landing before customs there is only 1 toilet. The other toilets before customs are dirty and smelly. There is an information desk but they only speak Russian. There are enough taxi's available - choose a registered taxi (with a sign) to avoid being ripped off. There are no other means of transport (bus lines or trains) to leave the airport. The sound installation in the terminal is lousy. In combination with the poor English of the announcers announcements are incomprehensible. Security is pragmatic and efficient. There is an x-ray and metal detector when entering the airport.
