Muscat International Airport Reviews

To replace a smaller airfield, the airport was opened as “Seeb International Airport” in 1973. In the past, the airport had hosted Royal Air Force BAe Nimrods, including the 1991 Gulf War. The airport, in a nutshell, was used as a military air facility. Moving forward, in time, the airport was rebranded as “Muscat International Airport” in 2008 and has been operated by Oman Airports Management Company (as a military/public type of airport).

In this review, we’ll be talking about the largest airport in Oman, more known as Muscat International Airport (MCT).

Aesthetics

loungeAs the country’s principal international gateway, Muscat International Airport has several facilities located throughout the airport. To know your way around, an information desk is available near the main terminal entrance and in the arrivals hall near the baggage concourse. Here, travellers visiting Oman can seek information about all that Oman has to offer and can obtain free leaflets, brochures, and maps about the Sultanate.

Restrooms are conveniently and clearly signposted. Another good news: shower facilities are also available but only for passengers with lounge access. If you are seeking for medical attention, first aid and emergency medical attention is provided at the airport’s medical clinic located in the arrivals terminal right before immigration.

Muscat International Airport Reviews-shopsThere is a good choice of cafés, fast food outlets, and restaurants both in Arrivals and Departures, along with an Irish-style pub, while a duty-free is available in International Departures and Arrivals, offering a variety of goods including souvenirs, alcohol, perfumes, and tobacco.

MCT is actually open for 24 hours. To stay connected, free WiFi is available, but a phone number is required for access.

Directions

Muscat International Airport serves the capital of Oman.  MCT is directly linked to the city via Route 1, Sultan Qaboos Street, if you are driving. But, if you are going to use means of public transportation, most hotels operate courtesy bus services to and from the airport for their guests. Or, there is an official taxi desk in the terminal which will take you to Muscat city in 25 minutes.

Location – Traffic – Service

The one-runway and single-terminal airport which will soon have a new 29-gate terminal, is situated roughly 26km (16 miles) west of central Muscat, and serves as the primary hub for Oman Air. The largest international airport of Oman had made a huge leap from total passengers accommodated last year compared with 2014.

Halifax Stanfield International Airport Reviews

When the Halifax Civic Airport was closed and converted to an army base in 1942, the Department of Transport established a new airport near Kelly Lake in 1960. The air facility accommodated over 180,000 passengers by then, and it became quite apparent in the 1970’s that the growth rate of YHZ was greater than an average airport.

Halifax Stanfield International Airport Reviews-Robert Stanfield
Robert Stanfield

As a result, long-range development plans were made. And, that’s what it makes the Halifax Stanfield International Airport as it is now.

Did you know that YHZ was part of Operation Yellow Ribbon of Canada? An operation to handle the diversion of civilian airline flights in response to the September 11 attacks in 2001. And, also to honour the people of Gander and Halifax for their support during the operation, Lufthansa named a new Airbus A340-300 “Gander-Halifax” on May 16, 2002.

The airport was named in honour of Robert Stanfield, or the 17th Premier of Nova Scotia and leader of the federal Progressive Conservative Party of Canada. In this review we’ll be looking through about the services and traffic reviews of Halifax Stanfield International Airport (YHZ).

Aesthetics

Halifax Stanfield International Airport Reviews-facilitiesThe airport that was awarded as “Best Airport in North America” of the Airport Service Quality and also had been the 3rd Best Airport by Size in 2011, Halifax Stanfield International Airport serves as the main airport of Nova Scotia of the Canadian province and has several facilities. So, getting lost won’t be a problem at YHZ. An information desk is located in the Arrivals area and more tourism Nova Scotia centers are located at the main level of the domestic arrivals. Volunteer assistants are available throughout the airport to help passengers with a range of queries.

There are a lot of restrooms located throughout the airport, but sad to say, showers are not available. To keep customers entertained, art and scheduled live music exhibitions are available throughout the airport.

There are two duty free shops at the airport. One is located on the Departures Level, across from Gate 24, and closes 45 minutes prior to the departure of non-US international flights. The other duty free shop, located in the US Pre-Clearance facility, stays open for all US-bound international flights and closes at the last call.

Halifax Stanfield International Airport Reviews-insideThere is a wide selection of fast-food outlets, cafés, and snack bars both pre- and post-security within the terminal, including licensed bars and pubs. Most food concessions throughout the airport operate with varying schedules, one of which (Tim Horton) is open for 24 hours.

Free WiFi is available at Halifax Airport. Connect to the “Halifax_Airport” network. Additionally, telephones with internet access are situated throughout the departure lounges, while dedicated internet kiosks are positioned throughout the terminal.

Non-passengers who are on a tour are also accommodated, through tours that can be conducted on Wednesdays from mid-September to mid-June. Tours can be customized to suit your group.

Transportation Directions

Halifax Stanfield International Airport can be reached from Highway 102, when heading north out of Halifax. Take exit 6 off the highway and follow the signs to the airport.
Halifax Stanfield International Airport Reviews-MetroX
Other means of public transportation are via MetroX bus 320 which links the airport to central Halifax, Airport Express that provides express shuttle service to various destinations in Nova Scotia, and Taxi or Limousine services from Domestic Arrivals.

Location – Traffic – Service

Halifax Stanfield International Airport is located 35 km (22 miles) north of central Halifax and is a hub for Air Canada Express, Cougar Helicopters, Maritime Air Charter, Provincial Airlines, and SkyLink Express. The public-type international airport of Canada was ranked to be the 8th busiest airport in the country by passenger traffic. YHZ had accommodated 3.7 million passengers last year.

Halifax Stanfield International Airport Reviews & News

Since the comments posted on Skytrax were pretty much outdated, we looked for more Halifax Stanfield International Airport reviews and found some on Yelp. On Yelp, we found several feedback regarding the airport. Halifax Stanfield International Airport reviews have stated that YHZ is probably one of the better airports in Canada, especially if you are used to Pearson. With a total rating of 4/5 on Yelp, this proves that passengers had a nice experience with Halifax Stanfield International Airport. One reviewer even said, “Otherwise, for a city of this size, I think YHZ does a marvelous job,”

Conclusion

However, we are still puzzled why Halifax Stanfield International Airport had ranked down from the 56th to 61th spot from the World’s Top 100 Airports. Maybe, because of some complaints over the neutrality of their services? Or, maybe because the airport needs more development given its size and traffic. I hope they won’t keep going down every year.

Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport Reviews

More commonly known as “The Lone Star State” in the US, it has the best barbecue joints around. Texas is the second most populous and the second-largest of the 50 states in the United States of America. Did you know that “Texas” came from the Caddo Indian word ‘tayshas’ meaning “friends” or “allies”? Back in 1927, Dallas proposed a joint airport with Fort Worth. Initially, the proposal was declined by Fort Worth; each city had opened their own airports.

joint proposalBut in the long run, the proposal was made effective in 1961 after the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) refused to invest more money in separate Dallas and Fort Worth airports, since Fort Worth’s airport was eventually abandoned by then.

In 1973, the public international airport was established. The airport opened for commercial service as Dallas/Fort Worth Regional Airport on January 13, 1974, at a cost of $700 million. The joint Texas city airport was rebranded to what it is known today as “Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport” in 1985.

Denver International Airport Reviews

muralsDenver International Airport is really not your typical airport or is a little bit different from other airports. Apart from being known for its tent-like structure, DEN is more commonly known for its conspiracies including stuff about its murals at the airport expressing New World Order’s takeover. Painted by artist Leo Tanguma, they tell the story of apocalyptic biowarfare destroying the world as we know it, with the New World Order taking over in its place.

Other structures are the 32-foot tall blue horse outside the airport which is known to be “Blucifer” that killed its own sculptor. You can also try to check this article:

Chūbu Centrair International Airport Reviews

2The airport code of Chūbu Centrair International Airport (NGO) was actually derived from the location of the air facility in Nagoya. The airport opened in the spring of 2005 at the D-shaped island within the Ise Bay (artificial island) in Aichi Prefecture, which was landscaped with the natural environment and wildlife in mind. Though, NGO was actually the second airport built on a manmade island (after Kansai International Airport).

Just so you know, Chūbu Centrair serves the third largest metropolitan area in Japan, centered around the city of Nagoya. The region is a major manufacturing centre, with the headquarters and production facilities of Toyota Motor Corporation and production facilities for Mitsubishi Motors and Mitsubishi Aircraft Corporation. In this review, let’s discover more about the international public airport for the region of Chūbu.

These are located on the first, second, and third levels of the terminal building. Staff at these desks can also help travellers with registration for use of rental wheelchairs and baby pushchairs. Please be advised that volunteers dressed in orange jackets can also assist with queries.

If passengers need to change their clothes after a long flight, there are change rooms located in the departures and arrivals lobby. A one-of-a-kind bathhouse, “Fu No Yu,” wherein customers can watch the planes landing and taking off, is located at the Relaxation Plaza, open from 8 am to 10 pm.

Sky Town areaThere are many places offering meals, snacks, and drinks at the airport. Several Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and Western restaurants can be found, and there are plenty of cafés, bento kiosks, and ramen noodle bars. The widest choice is available at the Sky Town area on the fourth level of the terminal. Unfortunately, there are no 24-hour food and beverage concessions available at the airport. The Family Mart, which seems to be more of a convenience store, is open 24 hours.

Most shops are located on the third and fourth levels of the main terminal building. Among the options are several food shops selling Japanese and local specialities, fashion boutiques, electronics, and gadget retailers, bookshops, and outlets selling travel accessories. Duty-free shopping is located in International Departures.

Travellers stay connected with the free WiFi throughout the airport and, additionally, 6 internet kiosks are available at the airport too, though it’s not free (100 yen per 10 minutes).

Taxi ranks are located directly outside the Access Plaza, on the second level. A taxi information desk is positioned next to the central information counter on the second level for bookings and information.

Overview

For some reason, we weren’t able to find Chūbu Centrair International Airport reviews online. However, even without the feedback of travellers, we are confident that this airport is one of the busiest yet organized air facilities in the world. Being the airport in the third largest metropolitan area in Japan is not easy. But, despite that, NGO is globally recognized as the 6th best from the world’s top 100 airports this year by Skytrax.

Fukuoka Airport Reviews

Fukuoka Airport Reviews-YataiDid you know Fukuoka has the most yatai (a small, mobile food stall in Japan typically selling ramen or other food) in all of Japan? That the city is home to Japan’s oldest Zen temple? That a festival is held here every other day? This is how cool Fukuoka city is. I wonder if the airport is as amazing as the city is. In this review, let us discover Fukuoka Airport (FUK)

Airport Facilities

The airport has several facilities throughout the airport and its terminals. There are information desks located at the domestic and international terminals. There are plenty of restrooms located throughout the airport but unfortunately, there are no showers available.

Fukuoka Airport Reviews-shopTo keep the travellers connected, there is WiFi service available in the domestic terminals, departure lounges, and in the international terminal departures lounge. The airport offers internet kiosks and computer workstations for a fee.

Directions

To Domestic Terminal
Fukuoka Airport domestic terminal is just two subway stops from Hakata Station (5 minutes, 260 yen one way) and a further three stations from Tenjin Station (12 minutes, 260 yen one way).

To International Terminal
The international terminal at Fukuoka Airport lies across the runway from the domestic terminal and is not directly accessible by subway. Instead, Nishitetsu Bus operates frequent local buses between the airport and Hakata Station (15 minutes, 260 yen). Alternatively, take the free shuttle bus from the international to the domestic terminal and catch the subway into central Fukuoka (see above). A taxi ride from the international terminal to Hakata Station takes about 10-15 minutes and costs approximately 1200 yen.

Location – Traffic – Service

The airport is used for public and military purposes and is being operated by Civil Aviation Bureau Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.

Fukuoka Airport was built in 1944 as Mushiroda Airfield by the Imperial Japanese Army Air Force for the World War II. After the war, JAL airlines was established in 1951, wherein the airline introduced jet service on the Fukuoka-Tokyo route in 1961.

Although Fukuoka Airport is known as one of the most convenient airports in Japan, it is constrained both by its inner-city location and by its single runway.
