All OK except the number of seats available for passengers awaiting their flight: too few!

Very nice place, we got through customs very fast, the staff was friendly we got our luggage within the first four minutes. The airport is very nicely designed

Going though customs was very fast, then it took over an hour to get our luggage. Mobs of people with crying kids (can’t blame them) after long flights waiting endlessly for luggage. Very disorganized luggage system.
