"worst experience of a European airport"
David James (United Kingdom)
Not Verified | Absolutely the worst experience of a European airport for a long time! Obviously working beyond its capacity for the volume of customers, so it’s a bun fight reminiscent of the last chopper out of Saigon. Nowhere to sit, queues everywhere with people at the gates mixing with people trying to buy coffee and a sandwich. Unbelievably poorly laid out as well as being too small and understaffed. The staff that are employed are rude, unhelpful and miserable. Needs a good shake up!
"not enough staff working"
C Vincent (United Kingdom)
Not Verified | I always travel from this airport and I have to say that nothing changes, there are always long queues to drop the bags and staff are really slow and rude, plus there are not enough staff working there. If you need anything there is no one around to ask.

"Chaos at security"
Ian Warburton (United Kingdom)
❎ Unverified | Chaos at security. Today, 23rd, was the same as Monday 19th. 30+ mins to get through. Not all security lanes operating? Were so many flights departing a surprise? Airport seems unable to cope with its growth plans, this weeks operations seem unsustainable.
"several shops and bars"
Antonio Jorio (Italy)
I use the airport of Brindisi quite often and among the years several improvements have been made to the terminal area. It is now clean, with several shops and bars. Toilets are available in the departure and arrival areas. The security check may be a little bit complicated because the area is a bit small. Once passed the gate area offers enough space and a bar to wait your boarding time. The only issue which needs to be resolved soon is related to the car parkings. There are now several flights and in fact Brindisi airport carried 2.200 Mln pax in 2015. It is mandatory to build up a multi story car park close to the terminal. Overall judgement of the airport is widely positive.

Brindisi Airport customer review
Brindisi (Salento) is a pleasant fairly new airport spacious enough for the level of fights. The lurid yellow/green fluorescent plastic seats are a bit much and I wouldn't want to encounter them with a hangover. Transit from city centre by bus 'A' costs 80cents (buy tickets in airport or in town from the bar on the way from the railway station to the bus stop in Via C Colombo) and runs half hourly. The snack bar prices are silly. Coffee 60% more than in town bottled beer 150% more (draught beer only 25% more but wasn't available). If your flight is from gate 1 (which the Ryanair flight to STN was) be aware that it is straight in front of passport control meaning that a lot of people can't get through passport control until boarding begins.
