Ponta Delgada Airport customer review

Review by (United States) 27th August 2014

I have flown into out of and through Ponta Delgada. As the end or start of a flight it is fine and that is the basis of my rating. A nice small airport. However if you are flying through it is awful. You have to walk from the aircraft no matter what the weather and the transit lounge is life a glassed in prison. Very limited amenities. Even shopping is limited although you can see the much bigger shops through the glass.

Ponta Delgada Airport customer review

Review by (United States) 3rd October 2013

Much much improved airport. Good facilities before entering the security area and good ones afterwards too. The airport and the region more airlines to offer more competition and better prices but PDL can't do anything about that. There is also a restaurant on the second level. Too bad that the view is into the terminal and not over the runway. That would be great. Also big planes can now come to the terminal. Passengers still walk on the tarmac and during the winter - that can be a challenge.

Ponta Delgada Airport customer review

Review by (United States) 31st August 2009

PDL has been improved at least before security. On a recent flight out of PDL to BOS the departure lunge was incredibly hot and steamy. There are a few amenities but waiting for a flight in the heat and humidity made an end to an enjoyable trip very unpleasant.

Ponta Delgada Airport customer review

Review by 17th March 2009

A lovely little airport. Everything is within easy walking distance of everything else. With so few flights there is none of the stress associated with the main European hubs. Arriving and leaving security and luggage collection is all very quick and easy. Even walking to the car rental pick up point is only a two minute stroll.

Ponta Delgada Airport customer review

Review by 28th July 2007

A neat and tidy airport with adequate and very clean facilities and helpful (SATA) staff who even when under pressure due to a cancelled flight and two delays were helpful and friendly. The airport is small but even with two flight movements did not seem crowded.

Ponta Delgada Airport customer review

Review by 14th September 2004

Good airport located in Ponta Delgada Sao Miguel Azores Islands. The main terminal is about five years old and quite spacious. There seem to be amenities for waiting passengers to help pass the time. SATA Air Acores is the main tenant with inter-island flights as well as domestic and international flights. PDL still has one walk on the tarmac to the smaller aircraft for boarding and disembarking. Larger aircraft park across the runway and passengers have to take shuttle buses to the terminal. This can be problematic if the weather is bad or passengers are in some way disabled. I have walked down slippery stairs to have to wait under the wing for a shuttle bus. That can be a nuisance. Customs and immigration are fast as well as baggage delivery.
