| I normally do not care much about airports but I do appreciate the basic necessities. However, in my very honest opinion, this is the worst airport I have encountered in my life. I flew to Santorini from Athens and the arrival procedure was prompt and easy. However, on my flight back to Athens, my flight was around 12.30 am. Upon arriving at the airport, there were lots of people waiting outside and I was informed that I had to wait outside as there was no space in the airport. I was travelling with 2 friends and of my friend asked a staff whether we need to wait outside as we already checked in online and had our boarding pass and had no luggage to check-in and she replied yes. There was only one staff member trying to control the mess outside the airport and we were left to wait for about an hour and the weather was very windy and chilly. Then, we kept seeing people just going to enter the airport and so we clarified with the same staff whether we really needed to wait outside and then she said we could just go straight to the security - which contradicted her first answer. There was only one security station open for all the people there. The security process was quick but I did not think they checked the bags thoroughly. Then, we entered the waiting area and as we had expected there was no space to not just sit but even stand. It was such a mess. Not many options for food and beverages and there is a very small duty shop inside the waiting area. The toilets were filthy and smelly. As we were all waiting for our flight to be called, there was no information announced or even shown on the board up to the point past our scheduled boarding flight. Then at 1am, there was an announcement about our flight in Greek but not followed by an English translation. My friend had to ask someone who can speak Greek about our flight and to our surprise it was cancelled. We were then advised to get more information from the SkyServ counter which did not really offer any help in our situation. All in all, Santorini is such a beautiful island and attracts lots of tourists, but the international airport does not serve its purpose or does any justice to this island. It is too small for a busy airport, very disorganised, very limited options of food and beverages, poor cleanliness and work morale of the staff. Last but not least, there is not even wifi in this airport.
