| This previously-delightful airport is starting to show signs of suffering from both popularity with certain airlines and from the administration required by handling Schengen and non-Schengen passports. I would simply say, please allow plenty of time outgoing, because some flights from the finger-dock going to Schengen countries - such as my flight to Santiago de Compostela, which last time I looked at an atlas was still in Spain - still require you to pass through a supplementary passport control, and if there are flights to non-Schengen destinations such as the UK or Turkey also leaving around the same time as your flight, you'll find yourself in a queue. On my return, despite being bussed from the aircraft - hoping my ultimate destination would be the baggage hall as happened on my previous flight from Amsterdam - we were deposited in the now-famous long corridor to undergo a passport check before emerging into the baggage hall. Please take the warning sign about the 'last toilets' seriously! You could be waiting there for a half hour or more, and the corridor on my last two occasions has had no working travelators to avoid at crush at the arrival point, so be prepared to walk - or carry your little ones or your granny! The officials today at the passport control (early afternoon) were working briskly and efficiently, but with Brexit waving in the wind, this could all change. Incidentally there is a notice reminding you to show passports OR identity documents and RIGHT OF RESIDENCE forms, so IF Brexit means that a UK national can only spend 90 days out of 180 in a Schengen country, and you actually live in that country, it may not be in your interest if your passport is stamped with an entry date .... in which case it might be a good idea to travel with your right to live in an EU country and present this before you offer your passport! But at the time of writing, who knows what the future will hold and when any changes might apply from ... and what they will be. But forewarned is forearmed.
