"airport is really compact"

(Brazil)

Trip Verified | The airport is really compact so the distance to walk between the gate and the curb is small. The departure and arrival processes are really fast! On the other hand, because The Carrasco Airport has a small Terminal, the commercial and service options are really limited and there are just a few options to eating, drinking or shopping. The immigration and emigration services are efficient. There is an electronic system to verify passport (e-gate) that makes really agile the process of documentation verification. The Security area (x-ray) needs better attendance. When I was passing by the Security inspection (X-ray) there was one senior couple slowing the only one row available. The security officers did nothing, neither helping the senior couple, neither opening an extra row and x-ray equipment. The baggage claim works well and is efficient! In this travel time I had one normal luggage plus one special sport equipment (bicycle) that arrived to the baggage claim area earlier than me. The Wi-Fi is good when you find an antenna to connect, but you will need to search the signal, that is not available in all the spaces. The signal is better on the second floor (checking area), but it did not works well on the ground (arrival and curb), so if you need the signal to send messages, chat in WhatsApp, or call Uber or taxi, it will be difficult.

"Clean, minimalistic and very nice"

(Uruguay)

Not Verified | Very good. Clean, minimalistic and very nice. Its quite a small airport so its impossible to get lost, very well constructed and new. The only drawback is the duty free, very little choice and what there is is expensive.

"airport closed due to fog"

(Uruguay)

Verified Review | Sitting and overlooking the abandoned runway at Carrasco International in Montevideo waiting for the mysterious fog to disappear makes you imagine what the world will be like without people. The airport closed due to fog and to help with the delay there will be a strike in the fog that got few passengers stranded and roaming this modern, but today useless building. However, the lights are glistering bright on the far side of the runway and you can't help think that South American mentality is taken much further in Uruguay than the rest of the continent. I wish I could upload my photo of the massive visible concrete slabs and the runway lights chasing away airplanes completely shying away from their function. I think you can even see the new PeƱarol football stadium they recently completed in the distance and luckily it doesn't snow in Uruguay.

"clean and new"

(Denmark)

I have been in this airport many times over the last three years, and it is by far the best airport I have experienced in Latin America. It is clean and new and easy to get through with no long queues, only a little when waiting in immigration after transatlantic flights. Everything is very open and there is many different things to buy in tax-free.

Montevideo Airport customer review

(Belgium)

If you fly Premium classes and get off the plane first you will be lucky enough not to queue too long with immigration and passport control, which is not too unpleasant. They seem to be friendly. Then directed to customs but through the Duty Free Shop, which is the cheapest in S.A, you can buy up to 500 US dollars of alcohol (bubblies, and wines and beers and 3 liters of white spirits). Customs are nice but tough. Do not change any cash inside the international no zone area, the exchange shop, who are expensive with high commission will give you vile rates. There are cash dispensers outside. Taxi service to town at one price only but expensive though. Do not take any taxi just airport ones that are of a beige colour. Check in facilites are good. Very few international airlines fly to Montevideo. Security is vile and long queues done by a division of the air forces, who are rude and not at all polite. Immigration on you way out are rude and unfriendly. Then again lounges after security and after Duty free (yet again convenient prices) you will find the lounge, just the one, for all F and C classes) ok though. Lovely little airport.

Montevideo Airport customer review

(Kenya)

Landing in Carrasco is a nice experience if the plane approaches the tarmac overflying the nice beaches and architecture. Immigration did not take more than a few minutes and luggage was efficiently delivered - it is necessary to go through a duty-free in order to reach the hall where the conveyors are placed. After customs the main lobby is very illuminated with natural light and spotlessly clean. Taxis are abundant and comfortable and the airport is located about 30 minutes from downtown. However some of the car-hiring companies are not located in the terminal but there is an efficient shuttle service to their offices.
