In the public area of Terminal 4 (departures) you can use the Boots pharmacy. Both terminals also have small takeaway food shops in the public areas.

Connected to Terminal 1 is a large shopping centre with many shops selling fashion, accessories, jewellery, sporting goods or food. It is only accessible through the public area and is open 24/7.


Both terminals are well-equipped with dining options, but mostly only in the public area, where you will find many local restaurants, eateries and international fast-food outlets such as McDonald's or KFC.

After security, only smaller cafes and a few fast-food outlets are available, but they are often fully booked.
