+ quick check in procedure
- first luggage control at entrance: you have to take your shoes off, no cover offered
- you have to fill in a departure form which is next to the arrival form - be careful to fill in the right form
- only one officer on duty - very slow departure process
- instead of opening more counters several ladies asked us where we are going to. Long waiting times.
Allover not a great experience and a bad departure memory. After they got your money they stopped being friendly and customer oriented.
Two stars only because of the quick and friendly check in procedure.
