A disgrace. Particularly easyJet.
Why download a boarding pass in advance then refused entry to plane because you haven't checked in?
This seems to work at other airports.
What's the point. A total utter disgrace of an airport and airline.
Minus 10 stars.

I didn't care for this airport. It was super crowded and really nothing to do except hope you don't catch covid-19 in the 2.5 hour wait I had to get a boarding pass, wasn't even checking a bag. . I won't visit Corsica again if I have to fly into or out of this airport.

Great little airport, your normally at the baggage before it comes out but be careful, your already passed Security when you pick it up, so any member of the public can take it.
