Thandwe Airport customer review
Review by David Whalley (United Kingdom) 5th March 2011
A small airport used mainly to service tourists going to Ngapoli beach. Immigration on entry is unusually time consuming with officials taking a long time to inspect each passport. Baggage is taken outside airport where it is collected by either passengers or more usually by staff from the hotels booked by passengers. Works well. Departure is chaotic. Check-in manually with printed passenger list. Effective but slow. There is no scanner at the airport and all luggage checked by hand. Some are checked in minute detail while others igored. The departure area small but adequate for the size of airport. Spectacular location on ocean edge.
