The airport has not changed since I was last here two years ago. On arrival we collected our visa from the "bank desk" (cost now $25) which was very slow because everything done by the teller had to be checked by the person watching him. Only one of the six passport desks was open (although there were a lot of staff around watching the queue) for the rudimentary non checking stamping of the passport followed by two more staff (independently) checking it had been stamped. Baggage arrived quite quickly. Upon departure all our bags were X-rayed on entry to the terminal (queue 1) then we queued (progressing very slowly) at the only two desks open to check-in (queue 2). Then we queued (3) to go through passport control passing through clouds of cigarette smoke from those watching the queue. Airside facilities (cafe food etc) nothing has changed including the erratic quality of the free WIFI and the attempts of the toilet attendant to get a tip of £1 or €1 for use of the free toilet. Queue 4 (relatively short) was that for the airport bus. As airports go this is better that any other Egyptian airport I have been to it would be superb is those watching the queues or watching others do their job would work as well.
