"new terminal building is under construction"

(Netherlands)

Krakow Airport. New terminal building is under construction. The old terminals are clearly to small to handle peak traffic. Bagage claim after Ryanair flight from Eindhoven was in a small annex, situated 1 km from the old terminal and, more important, from the carpark building, where the car rental offices are situated. Luckily a helpful employee from the only other company situated in the annex was so kind to bring us over. Maybe there was a shuttle connection, but I didn't notice any signs. The international departures terminal has a rather peculiar layout. The counter with higher numbers are 'around the corner' via a small corridor, next to the entrance of the security check. We departed on a rather quite day, still it was not easy to find seats for the waiting. Good thing was the seperate bus drive to the plane with the priority boarding passengers only.

Krakow Airport customer review

(United States)

I dislike Krakow Airport. I understand that is still under construction and expansion, however, there are things, which should be put in place regardless. Like the customer service at the departure section. The arrival process of picking up the luggage seems to be flawless, regardless the congestion at this part of airport. There is a lot of to improve at the departure section. On the recent flight from Krakow to NY with transfer in Berlin, I found the customer service personnel at the Customer Service desk very rude and arrogant. When I asked where I could check in, the answer “behind the corner” astonished me. “Behind the corner” there was hundreds of people waiting in line, however nobody knew why and where they were waiting. On my second question, is there a way to omit that line, I heard that “this is my problem”, not her. Thankfully, a few minutes later I found another customer service girl, who was much more helpful and who directed me to the proper place. The check-in window was empty. At the check-in window, the young man was very helpful trying to help me with a seat assignment for my daughter and me. Upstairs at the waiting room people are everywhere, sitting on the floor when there is more than one plane scheduled which is almost a routine. Our plane was late, which I think made the situation worse. I was very pleased with courtesy of security check-in staff, but that did not diminish the earlier bad experience at the Customer Service desk. I just hope that the next time I visit Krakow, the airport will be less crowded, and personnel courtesy will be improved.

Krakow Airport customer review

(Poland)

Flying return with EasyJet to BSL. KRK is very small airport and not many things happen in the morning. Before 7am most of shops are closed. I found just two plugins in the whole departure hall. Before any departure, the hall is getting very busy and crowded. Anyways, airport is clean and good enough for regional travels. It is not so difficult to reach it from the city with a bus and the ticket cost isn`t high neither. Be prepared for a long time travel (up to 2 hrs) if you travel with a bus during rush hours (7-9am & 3-5pm) Very good duty free deals for alcoholic beverages (only of You leave EU) might be considered as a big plus.

Krakow Airport customer review

(Netherlands)

Desperately in need of a new airport which is being built right now. Arrived in T2 just a kind of shed. Departing: airside was horror. When two flights or more are departing there is absolutely no sitting room. Crowded with people on the floor everywhere.

Krakow Airport customer review

(Spain)

Yesterday had a 'brilliant' opportunity to pay a visit to Krakow Airport. Sorry I should have had because due to fog in Krakow my flight from STN was for the second time in a year diverted to Katowice (KTW). We were then transferred by bus to Krakow which made my travel almost 3 hours longer than it originally was. Next time I won't choose KRK because of just a bad location and a huge risk of fog and diversions.

Krakow Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Two recent domestic return flights from WAW. Domestic terminal is tiny and resembles the former Etiuda terminal at WAW. Baggage reclaim is rather slow. Check-in is surprisingly quick despite long queues. Security and ground staff are fine. The free bus from the railway station is timed to pick up arrivals but is not so useful when leaving the domestic terminal - the bus can wait for up to 30 minutes at the international terminal so it's sometimes quicker to walk. Facilities consist of two shops and a cafe with minimal seating before security - not a problem when the flight is on time but my second flight was delayed by two hours due to fog which made things less pleasant. Overall a useful regional airport but nowhere near the standard of WAW - the great city of Krakow deserves better.

Krakow Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

FRA-KRK arrived 5 minutes ahead of time. Terminal building is small with all aircraft parked on the apron and buses to the building no airbridges. 2 baggage reclaim belts and not much else apart from toilets and lost baggage counter. It could be very busy if more than one plane is arriving at the same time but just about OK for 1 flight plenty of free trolleys available. Arrivals Hall is at one end with the Car Rental and similar things easily available - Check-in is at the other end of the building. Car Park/Car Rental is in the multi- storey opposite the terminal building and looked very new (September 2012). Only flew into the airport so cannot comment on length of queues to Check-in or pass through security. The airport is small which means it has its own charms and challenges.

Krakow Airport customer review

(United Kingdom)

Worst airport I've ever experienced. We were there on a Sunday morning in January - we'd arrived with 2.5+ hours before our flight was due to depart. We couldn't find the check-in desk as it was impossible to see beyond the queue of people waiting for security. Thankfully a staff member helped me out and pointed me in the right direction. Check-in was easy. It was then time to join the ridiculously long security queue which took 1.5 hours. It wouldn't have taken quite as long had people not been pushing ahead in the queue - people with children seemed to think they had priority along with people who hadn't left enough time (though who would have expected to wait for that long!). All in all it would certainly put me off travelling to Krakow again.

Far too small for amount of traffic it handles - cramped and grubby check in. Very inadequate facilities after security tiny shop and coffee bar only. Reasonable seating at gate - however in desperate need of expansion.

Dreadful overcrowded lacking facilities that even the smallest airports elsewhere seem to have. I will now avoid it and fly to Warsaw. The train service to Krakow is preferable to another interminable wait at Krakow.
