Quick review of Bratislava Airport (BTS), Slovakia
This airport is not up to full international standards. Arrival side is probably adequate as passengers usually get away from airports quickly. The departure check in area is quite small. There are only 6 or 8 seats available for waiting passengers who do not wish to pay to sit in a small cafe or the restaurant. The latter is upstairs, no lift or escalator is apparent, those with luggage, with children, with physical limitations are disadvantaged. The B gate departure lounges are ludicrously small and 3/4 of passengers on a major flight will have to stand for up to 3/4 hour
before boarding. On 21st April 2007 a serious situation arose in the procedures for boarding and it was fortunate that no accident or panic arose.
