Best ever I loved the rare event of empty planes instead of being packed like sardines due to virus fears. The staff was very friendly and helful they did not appear tired or frustrated with their job

Sep 22, 2018

The signs in the airport made it very easy to navigate. The only thing to improve would be the announcements on the train were hard to hear which gate you were arriving at.
