"such a pleasant surprise"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | First time to this airport. When we arrived it was such a pleasant surprise to see how small it was. The time from landing to being on the transfer bus was 15 minutes. The cases were already waiting after passport control. On the return visit it was much busier as several flights were taking off in a short period. However they dealt with the people quickly with no issues at all. I wish all airports were like this one

"Pleasant small airport"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | Pleasant small airport. Excellent parking, far far nicer than Alicante and better than Murcia San Xavier. It's in Spain, so some Brits may find things a little slow but nothing is slow enough to annoy any but the really intemperate. We like it and will use it as our Andalusian airport of choice for as long as we can.

"Not good enough"

(Spain)

Unverified | The airport is clean and modern. We had to walk a couple of hundred metres from the 'plane to the terminal - ok on a dry day. The delay at passport was unacceptable. Two grumpy officers dealing slowly with a couple of hundred arrivals. Not good enough.

"Airport staff not giving any information"

(United Kingdom)

Unverified | Horrible, hot sweaty long wait in passport control. Worst ever airport. Screaming kids and a two hour wait in queue for passport control. No access to toilets or cold drinks. I'm actually still in queue now, my pick up has left, fed up of waiting. Airport staff not giving any information.

"speedy check in and security"

(United Kingdom)

Interesting to see the airport since last year. Inbound passport has moved further indoors so no queuing on the road but still slow processing. There's an escalator to passports now which had a log jam at the top when we arrived so some guy had to rush out and switch it off otherwise there would be a pile of passengers at the top! Baggage arrived about 20mins after flight landed. Outbound speedy check in and security. Roof terrace still not open nothing has changed since last October.

"limited baggage handlers"

(United Kingdom)

Arrival okay queue to go through passport was a bit long. Luggage arrived on the belt as we got though. Limited baggage handlers so for a full charter flight might be longer. About 25 mins from landing to getting in the taxi. Going out the departure hall has been rebuilt much better and quicker. Security still tight big queue to get through. The departure lounge has been rebuilt and access to the rooftop terrace removed. The lounge is much better than the original. As work is going on don't know if there are plans to restore access to the roof. Small snack bar with coffee and rolls at reasonable prices but duty free for local stuff is the same price as supermarkets and imported stuff is more expensive than UK supermarket prices. Wouldn't want to arrive or depart when there are more than 2 charter/scheduled UK flights though. Then it would get overloaded very quickly.

"more than adequate"

(United Kingdom)

I found the airport to be more than adequate. We were there in July and it was busy but check in was OK as was security. The waiting area is small and there are not enough catering facilities but the roof top terrace was brilliant it was a pleasure to wait for the plane for once and you can have a cigarette in peace! The toilets were clean and tidy wastebins emptied frequently so all in all not a bad airport - have certainly spent time in much worse

"it is woefully inadequate"

(United Kingdom)

Almeria was unfortunately not built to handle the amount of traffic using it. There is only one runway which means deays in departure if there are several arrivals. The terminal facilities are sufficient in the low season but when the charters are at full peak it is woefully inadequate. The limited number of check-in desks means that when several flights are being loaded often only one or perhaps two desks are available for each. There is a real bottleneck at the one and only security entrance. Information is poor even when it is obvious that flights are late the original time is left showing on the monitors. The departure lounge is small and with only one cafe which offers a very limited selection of food and drink. There is however a large open roof seating area with lift and stair access with excellent views of the apron and runway with a cafe which opens when the airport is busy. The only bus link is crowded with non-airport passengers as already described by an earlier contributor and doesn't end at the combined bus/rail station but some 400 metres away in town. A taxi to the centre is only 8 - 10 Euros.

"I must have been lucky"

(United Kingdom)

Reading some of the other reports of Almeria airport I have to say that I must have been lucky on the twenty or so times I have used the airport because I have not had any problems to complain about. The only serious problem which needs to be highlighted is the pilfering of baggage which happens. In view of the serious security problems at British airports someone in a foreign airport who can steal items from baggage could just as easily be putting something in! Almeria to Stansted appears to be the main problem and whilst the pilfering could be taking place at Stansted this is unlikely due to the limited amount of time the bags are available to the people doing the pilfering. The bags are out of sight at Almeria for up to 1.5 hours before the flight.

"more than enough facilities"

(United Kingdom)

A small airport with limited but more than enough facilities. The immigration control area is very small with only one counter; resulted in a long queue extending to the outside of the arrival's entrance door. In the departure hall try to get anything you want (food newspaper souvenir etc.) before passing through security. Once airside there are only one small duty free shop and one very small cafe; boring poorly stocked and expensive!
