The only terminal is outdated and small. Especially on Saturdays, when most flights arrive, it is very congested and we recommend arriving at least 2.5 hours before your flight. There are long queues and the check-in process is generally quite slow. The terminal closes overnight and it is not possible to stay overnight.
