| The worst thing about this airport is the heavy use of remote stands and buses. All three of my movements used them and that always means a bad airport but it was even worse here because they never sent enough buses, leaving passengers standing on the tarmac or at the bottom of escalators, plus the roads on the tarmac were crowded and buses and other vehicles would just stop on the roads anywhere, plus the drivers were maniacs. The most horrible airport boarding buses that I’ve seen. Otherwise, it was good. I experienced the airport in the morning, midday and evening and it was never really crowded and check-in, security and emigration were fast. However, the signage in the airport is terrible - I even saw two signs directing to one of the gates that were pointing in completely opposite directions. Just remember that there are two widely-spaced check-in areas and that there are also multiple departure entrances. Customer service staff were helpful. ID is checked at check-in, security and boarding. People line up very early for boarding (even though some airlines are strict about boarding by rows) and the queues block corridors. There are a few decent cafes and shops on both sides of security, some with water views. Wifi generally worked ok. If they stopped using buses, this would be a good airport. Still better than Ezezia and much closer to the city (I got a taxi over to Palermo for lunch during a long layover - less than $150 each way).
