"can't rely on WiFi here"

(United Kingdom)

Verified Review | Relying on free WiFi is something that international travellers are forced to do in the majority of destinations due to the extortionate costs of data roaming.  Unfortunately you can't rely on WiFi at Tirana airport as never works, and never has despite this being a new terminal.

"very comfortable chairs/sofas open all night"

(Sweden)

Upon entering the terminal building the queue line to get a visa into Albania was very long. It took me about 45 minutes. Airport has good ATM service for getting local currency to use for taxi. Buses were not very frequent so I had to take a taxi, 25 € to Tirana city. My flight back home left at 3.30 am so I spent a night in the airport. Rental car return at 9 pm, no problem. Airport had a good café with very comfortable chairs/sofas open all night where I could spend the night hours. Check-in and security no problem at the night time.

"nice small airport"

(Albania)

The terminal building for Tirana airport is new and clean. There are enough shops but the prices are much higher than the average in Albania. Its not really busy, check-in is fast, customs staff were rude. There are no jet bridges, you always board by bus. WI-FI is really complicated so I never use it. Overall a nice small airport and clean, but not perfect.

"very quiet and boring"

(United Kingdom)

Tirana airport had free WiFi only for 30 minutes and I got delayed so it was not enough - you then you have to pay. Limited shops and restaurants. There's 2 cafes where the gates are, selling low standard sandwiches. It is very quiet and boring.

Tirana Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

It is a clean and easy to navigate airport due to its size. Staff at the check-in counter security officers and immigration officer were friendly and kind. There are limited numbers of restaurants and duty free outlets. However the free Wi-Fi is very much appreciated.

Tirana Airport customer review

(United States)

A very pleasant open spacious terminal with clean and comfy facilities. Although staff were helpful and nice passport control took a very long time both in and out due to individual entry of each passport info into computer and a single officer for all the passengers. Land and airside stores are plentiful and carry everything you may want to buy especially souvenir-wise.

Tirana Airport customer review

(Malaysia)

A small airport where you could clear the immigration and collect your luggage within 30 mins. It is a bright and clean airport and definitely easy to move around. On my departure day they had system problems on their computer. As a result the check-in counters were open 1 hr before departure time. However after getting my boarding pass I took 10 mins to clear the security check point and the immigration process. The airport's staff were helpful and smiling. This is the attitude that should be learnt by most of the airports staff in Europe Middle East and Australia.

Tirana Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Tirana seems to have been recently refurbished. Arrival was hassle free with only short queues for passport control and suitcases available for collection afterwards. Money exchange was painless and a reasonable rate given. On leaving two weeks later check in was a bit slow. Queues for security minimal and security staff were pleasant and spoke good English. Once airside there was a good range of shops and eating places with affordable prices. Staff pleasant and helpful. I only had a limited amount of currency left and the person serving at a cafe patiently explained what I could afford to eat and drink. The food choice was excellent and well presented.

Tirana Airport customer review

Although fairly new the main hall is already being expanded by about 25%. Customs is a breeze and the 10 euro 'admission fee' was scrapped in spring 2009 so there are no more fees at all. Usually by the time you're stamped through the bags are already on the belt. There's a new tourism information centre in arrivals now with advice free city guidebooks and maps. The bus to the main square departs every hour otherwise take the official fixed-price taxis. The bookshop in the main hall is pretty well-stocked (with only sister shop Adrion in the centre offering a similar range) so take advantage of it while you're at TIA.

Tirana Airport customer review

Pleasant modern airport. Passport control was without the queues warned about in the guide books. There's a ATM right afterwards. The taxi touts are easily brushed off and there's a taxi rank outside of official yellow cabs which charge a set fee advertised in the window (25 euros if I remember correctly).
