I used this airport for the first time last week and am not so enthusiastic as previous contributors. I arrived in the dark on a wet and windy morning and had great difficulty in locating an empty parking space in the ill-lit long stay area and was then faced with a quite long walk on an uneven muddy and potholed path to the terminal building. Monitor screens gave no information about flights until about two minutes before boarding. On the return journey it took half an hour for baggage to be brought all of 200 yards from the plane to the carousel at a time when there was no other activity whatsoever on the tarmac. Durham Tees Vally which I use regularly and must be of a similar size and level of busy-ness seems a much better-organised and more efficient airport: or was I just unlucky this time?
