Trapani is still a partly military airport with fencing all around the civilian area and perhaps this is why it seems so crowded - and perhaps because Ryanair have hugely increased their flights recently. The result is that the landside arrivals was crowded but not too bad but the car park was full and the car hire area overflowing with double treble and quadruple parked cars. Finding the right person and right car and attempting to get out of the airport was not easy - and all this despite the airport saying that the number of parking and car hire spaces have been increased recently. On the way back the departure lounge (with nice views) which would be pretty much filled up with three planes full was further strained by the fact that there were about 6 or more extra aircraft at the airport due to Palermo being temporarily closed (a Windjet aircraft had landed 400 metres short of the runway). Overall Trapani is fine but it seems to be reaching saturation despite recent extensions both inside and out. Whilst it was a minor irritation for us I imagine a few extra passengers could cause problems of the sort to make you tear your hair out. Just hope that you don't arrive immediately after a couple of other aircraft or you could be in for a long wait for your baggage car hire etc - and just getting out of the car park.
