The Airport is not clean. Air conditioning is not functioning. Prices are high and services are bad. Toilet is awful. Security check is very slow. I don’t have good words for this Airport.

Best airport ever. I love coming here.. NOT. I would pay to not transfer through OTP, it might be Europe’s worst airport: awful communication, expensive lounges, employees that dont even know what theyre doing, 0% effiency and I can go on like this..
