The staff is very unfriendly, unhelpful and rude, no help for Handicaps, Never Again!!!

Shocking arrival today - huge queues estimate 2000 people in a small space with low ceiling and minimal air conditioning - no chance of any distancing at all - minimum one hour to get through most will be two hours - strongly advise against travelling here currently - worst expert in over 20 years of using this airport.

Terminal 3 is a nice and modern terminal, however, it is always busy at the food courts and there is not much seating room. Terminal 2 is an old and dilapidated terminal, which does not meet the current standards. It should have been closed already.
