NOTE:  You need to arrive at the Airport 3 hours prior to scheduled departure, due to the long check-in procedure. Baggage exceeding 20 kilos is being charged extra.  According to passenger feedback, inefficiency & staff rudeness towards the passengers, regardless where they come from, can test your patience, particularly when your bags are being rechecked again...and money talks: if you absolutely, positively have to catch a connecting flight & the lines in front of you are endless - you may pay your way out of it when approached by 'staff'.
