"could use some upgrades"

(Germany)

Small airport, not really comfortable. On arrival fours planes have arrived at the same time what made the passport check-area quite full and I had to wait 45 minutes to get through. As the airport has no rail or bus connection to the city you have to take a taxi (the drivers like to rip you off) or let somebody collect you. The departure was better, but the check-in area is smoky as there it seems normal to smoke there, there's also a small bar where almost everyone smokes. Quite disgusting. The passport control was fast this time, no waiting. The security area is luckily a non-smoking area. There is a small duty free shop and a small bar which is enough for this place. Wifi is available, free for 15 minutes, unfortunately it is not possible to extend even by paying as the page says no payment possible, it doesn't even try. All in all there's no other way to get to Sarajevo, but this airport could use some upgrades.

"Sarajevo Airport is very small and very manageable"

(Slovenia)

Sarajevo Airport is very small and very manageable. After you enter the main building there are check ins. Afterwards you have to go to the first floor where is one departure hall with 9 or 10 departure gates. There is plenty of seating, they also have big beanbags for seating, which can be quite fun and relaxing. There is only one bar with snacks and one shop. If you are travelling with children, the signs for baby changing room is misleading - after you follow the signs, there is no baby room. You have to follow the signs for the bathroom for disabled. If you wait for a long time, you might get very bored.

(Oman)

Small airport, small queue size, fast passport processing airport. Staff are reasonable, but not a single smile. Smoking is unrestricted. Taxi service available outside gate.

Sarajevo Airport customer review

(Canada)

Not much to complain about nowadays there is bus service offered by Centrotrans bus company and GRAS as well from airport to down town. Personnel at check-in counter need to be more friendly for example our flight to GOT via BUD was cancelled by Malev but we were issued tickets to fly with Austrian and people at check-in counter were making faces exhaling loudly while printing boarding passes for flight via VIE.

Sarajevo Airport customer review

Very small but clean and cozy airport with only 3 gates. Going through the passport control and customs was a breeze. I do agree with the previous comments about taxis. There is no public transportation from the airport to the city so unless someone is picking you up or you're picking up a rental you're forced to take a cab which will routinely rip you off and not even turn on the meter. For a 10 minute ride I was charged 25.00 marks (currently USD $16.30)! If you can arrange some type of transportation other than the taxi my advice is to do so.

Sarajevo Airport customer review

Small very clean and efficient from security check through check-in immigration and baggage claim. But it's not really a hospitable place: there's no restaurant only three cafes offering the same things (little or no food); a very modest and unappealing duty-free shop and a newsstand selling only local-language press. If you have to spend time here you're out of luck. Don't take the airport taxis which all overcharge; instead call the official city cabs by dialling 1515 they arrive quickly and charge the (relatively low) official rate.

Its very small but convenient airport. There is small duty free area and coffee bar in upper floor after immigration and also one coffee bar before immigration. Toilets are clean. Immigration procedures on arrival and on departure are simple and fast.

Sarajevo Airport customer review

I have arrived and departed SJJ several times in the first half of 2007 and find very little to criticise . It is fairly small and not very busy so check-in luggage handling passport checks etc. tend to work quickly and effectively. I have only encountered helpful and friendly staff in all areas. One criticism is that there is no public transport to the airport except taxis - and you should agree the price before you get in. I did once walk from the nearest tram stop probably about 1.5km not recommended even with only hand luggage particularly when it starts to pour with rain halfway!

Sarajevo Airport customer review

It is very clean and the toilets are cleaned by the crew literally every 20 minutes. I was stranded in this airport for more than 6 hours due to fog which Sarajevo suffers during the winter months of December to February. It is funny kind of similar to the rest of Sarajevo in regards to hospitality. They are either very friendly with a big smile or just very ]rude and disinterested. For example the people at currency exchange information desk baggage claim and check in just couldn't stop smiling. But the people at the security and ticket counters were rude. Ticket counter agents any request such as air fare inquiry schedules etc. creates extra stress for them that they make you feel guilty for being a human being! For instance the lady at the Croatia Airlines ticket counter all I wanted was the air fare from Sarajevo to Munich and she rudely yells at me and say we do not sell tickets from Sarajevo which doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever.

Sarajevo Airport customer review

I traveled thru Sarajevo Airport many times. My first was 1999. airport was in rebuilding phase it was really bad. In 2002 I was surprised by work that has been done at airport. New terminal building with two jetways open view of apron and runway. This is a really small but nice airport. This year they added new terminal radar too. Staff at SJJ airport is really nice and professional.
