    An all round job well done. This airport is clean and professional, even though it is small. Staff are friendly and easy to find your way around. Ammenities are clean and hygienic. Great stuff.

    Arrived and departed through this (little) airport some months ago for a short holiday in the area. In arriving, one walks (YES !) off the plane to the terminal building. The plane is able to 'park' just in front of the building. This leads to a logical, quick and easy exit from the plane and entry to the terminal building. The arrivals hall was as I always remembered it - with that rather stark and functional "terrazo window sill" - hardwearing sort of 50's and 60's feel to it. (Well it has stood the test of time, has'nt it, and retro is cool !?). After the usual wait for the luggage (one can actually see the luggage being offloaded from the 'plane, and trolley in) .This is real time visual (transparent - i.e. through the window) tracking of baggage handling, and a great stress manager to boot ! Luggage collected, exited to the lobby to see our friends waiting on the other side. In two tics, walked to the car, and we were on our way. On the departure leg, the experience was different, and more 'modern', as that side of the terminal had been modernised - all worked well, and we were through to the pre-departure lounge, with 'smart, new' facilities of all kinds - toilets, little kiosks / shoppe's, and a cafe. There were visual 'advertising boards' showing passengers what the final renovation outcome would look like. All very nice. Exit was still 'on foot', so this was all good. Unlike a larger airport like OR Tambo - which can be confuzzbubbling (and where numerous planners have had serious stabs at an 'integrated renewal plan', when it's smaller and simpler, it's usually easier to take a logical and truly holistic integrated planning view and achieve a better outcome ? Cool, well done, PE airport, take a bow !

    A very small airport which is perfect for a pensioner like me as you do not have to walk miles to get to your boarding gate. What they have in their airport is everything one needs, quality over quantity in this airport!!!!

    Wish all airports where as straightforward and easy to work your way around as PE airport. Apart from the cleanest city, the airport have the friendliest of people, and everything is available from food to car hire to whatever you need. First Class PE airport.

    The PE airport is just that, you go there to walk in and either fly out or walk out. It is very simple but has everything you need from an airport. It can get very busy at times but still manageable.
