RHODES AIRPORT - Your ultimate guide.
We love a small well run airport and Rhodes airport is one of these airports.
It's small, clean and very friendly, in fact, it's one of the friendliest Greece airports we have visited.
Nice to have WiFi but we didn't see many charging points, the toilets were spotless.
For eating you have a Burger King, Starbucks, French bakery, a Greek corner, and a bistro (sandwich’s and pizza), prices are your usual airport rates; however, we did find a great deal on a 5.00eur baguette which was very nice. Not many locations though to fill a bottle of water, however, the price in the duty-free shop was quite reasonable compared to other airports.
Check-in was quite straightforward, we did see some queuing but did move quickly.
Through to security was easy, friendly staff but we found that all over the island that in Greece the people were all lovely.
There is quite a walk to get to the gates so be aware.
To get to your aircraft there are no airbridges, so you will be transported by bus. Normally boarding will be slightly earlier due to this so give yourself plenty of time to get to your gate.
Arriving at Rhodes airport was easy, again we departed the aircraft side by bus to be transported to the terminal building.
Getting through customs was very easy and baggage reclaim seemed very fast so we were quite impressed.
A soon as you have all your luggage simply locate the exit where you will find your driver waiting for you.
If for any reason your luggage is delayed, your driver will wait for you so don't worry
If we had to give Rhodes airport a rating out of five we would probably give it 4 because it does seem well run, and as a result, we feel the only thing letting itself down is more retail services but I suppose lacking in size adds to the reason why.
