Observation deck

The airport boasts a nice free observation deck, which offers a beautiful view of the entire area and one of the runways. This is located in Terminal 1 and access is from the public area of the airport, so it is also open to the non-travelling public.

Drinking water

Although there are no dedicated drinking water fountains in the terminal, cold drinking water is available in the toilets by the sinks, and you can fill your own bottle.
