A disaster. Went at Long Term Parking, the machine did not have tickets. When a service guy arrived, brought tickets for the machine but parking was full. Went to other two parking areas, were full. I had to park at the short term parking which has 5x the prices. SHAME !!!!

The worst airport and service I've experienced so far. Very unkind workers, no AC, long lines

African countries have better airports than this european country. The OTP airport is too small, it was build by the communists for a traffic of 1000 people per year. The new communists in power tried only to enlarge somehow the old place by building some additional terminals, resulting an ugly and idiotically built airport.
Employees are rude, perhaps because they are all relatives with their communist employers and cannot be fired. It is a shame.
