One of the best airports of its size I have visited in more than 30 countries of the world: modern Like new, comfortable, ground Floor only except Restaurants upstairs. Only Bus Transfer to and from Airplane to Terminal. Excellent, friendly and in bright light fast Passport control in short lines. I saw 3 Guys from FRONTEX controlling single travelling Girls. What are EU Border Controllers do in Moldova???
