"very little seating"
Gary Rushworth (United Kingdom)
Not Verified | Slow bag drop, called us through passport control to the gates about 2 hours before the flight into the boarding gates, which had very little seating and no priority seating for disabled/pregnant passengers. Generally fairly clean. Food options very limited.

"Information point nowhere to be seen"
N Marsien (Poland)
✅ Trip Verified | Well the airport is small so no comment there. Toilets pretty clean. However there’s a bus every hour. The bus driver doesn’t sell tickets so I missed my bus at 9am for having to go back inside find the ticket machine somewhere and stay in a queue and buy it. There’s no shade for the people and there are lots of children and pregnant women. Information point nowhere to be seen.
"unfortunately a little shabby"
Nicola Ruggeri (Italy)
❎ Not Verified | Small airport but very functional, unfortunately a little shabby and with few flights and only seasonal. I landed and took off from and to Bergamo airport. In any case the airport is far from Santa Teresa di Galura at two hours and three or four hours from Olbia.

"a nice little airport"
Harry Albright (United Kingdom)
A nice little airport actually in Fertilia rather than Alghero. It has been recently expanded and a new arrivals hall should be opening shortly. Arrivals are straightforward both Schengen and non-Schengen. There are two belts for luggage and then you are straight out to the arrivals hall. Car rental desks are opposite where you come out and there are a couple of cash machines as well as a bar and a few shops. At the bar you pay at the cash register then take the receipt to the bar. Apart from the car rentals there are taxis just outside arrivals although these are pricey (about 20 Euro to the centre of town). It's about 12km to Alghero. Another option is to turn right and cross the parking lot. About 100 metres away are bus stops with orange buses running to Alghero and other buses heading to Sassari and Cagliari. Buy tickets for the Alghero buses at the souvenir shop (about 70 cents) in the terminal. If this is closed ride the bus anyway. The driver will sometimes stop for you to buy tickets sometimes not. Departures is equally straightforward at the other end of the terminal from arrivals. Note though that there is absolutely nothing to do airside so don't go through too soon. Non-Schengen international flights (e.g. to the UK) all leave from gate 1 and you have to queue for passport checks before you are allowed in to the gate area. The immigration officers usually arrive about 30 minutes before the flight.
