Following the international trend of a central terminal - so there are no 'dead resources' - there's plenty of natural light and lots of space in and around the 120 check-in desks. I flew out early on a Sunday, so not the busiest time of the week, but there were few queues and everything seemed to work like clockwork.
There is a good range of food outlets on the third level, all of which have great views over the runway. And let's face it… which kid doesn't like to watch the planes land and take off?!
if there's a gripe, it's that there is only one place to get something to eat/drink in the Domestic Departures area, but perhaps this is set to change as more areas of the new terminal are unveiled. At present only the central Departures area is open, with Arrivals set to be opened in March 2010.
So far, well done ACSA. At least we're seeing some improvements from those hefty airport tariffs.
