The terminal is Soviet-style and a little big for just 2 or 3 flights a day to Moscow and the occasional charter. Check-in was slow with initially only one desk open but the service was friendly and efficient when eventually obtained. With a blizzard on the tarmac it was unsafe for the bus to drive out to the plane. Stumbling across the whipped up snow and ice is not something for the fainthearted. The early offer of an onboard drink was appreciated.
