Alleged to be the world's largest airport- takes up half the desert space just to achieve this for no reason but to be a record breaker in a country where tourism is forbidden! - a traveller
by a traveller
January 2015 - The airport isn't too bad. Check-in and security are very quick. Signs are lacking but the airport is easy to navigate. There are a few cafes, smoking rooms, and fast-food joints here and there, and plenty of chairs to sit on. Free wifi also exists. Toilets are some of the dirtiest you'll find however, which is my biggest gripe with the airport. Overall, I think you could tolerate a few hours at the airport, especially if you bring a few episodes of whatever show to watch, but I can't imagine staying for long there.
