What is the Airport Like?
The current terminal was completed under a decade ago but has already become overcrowded. A new one is planned which will help congestion inside the airport as well as on the roads outside it. For such a remote airport, it has an excellent range of services including several food outlets of all types, a duty free shop and several boutiques as well as a travel essentials shop and bookstore. There’s first aid and a prayer room as well as police, foreign exchange and postal facilities.
