Unfortunately, without respect, indignant at the omission of an employee of the airport Koltsovo, passenger Shipulina IG.

September 24, 2017 Arrived on a flight from Larnaca to Yekaterinburg. in Larnaca, "GLASS" marks were stuck on luggage. As a result, removing the luggage suitcase from the tape (at the ECB), liquid flowed out of it. They smashed a bottle of expensive wine that was lying in the middle of the suitcase! AS ?? WHAT YOU JUMPED ON IT ???? WHAT DID YOU DO ON IT ???? THIS TIME I MAKE SURE THAT IN RUSSIA THE PIG LOADERS ARE HAND-ASS !!!! THERE ARE NO OTHER WORDS !!!!

Many thanks to the employees of the Koltsovo airport for their initiative and prompt action to detect and deliver to the Antalya airport documents and money that were accidentally left on 8.08.2017 in the waiting room of the international terminal, which were sent to us on the next flight. Many thanks from our whole family. Good luck in your service!

Yesterday we flew from Cyprus, when we received the baggage, we found out that one of the suitcases was broken, inside everything was broken. How so it is possible? He did not begin to argue, because he was with a small grandson, where the management of the terminal is looking at all. A disgrace. Next time I'll sue the bastards.

Shame and disgrace of the administration of the airport Koltsovo for stealing things from baggage.

Arrived 21 June from Tel Aviv. So many people asked about luggage, weighed and so on. As a result, on arrival home, I found a shortage in a suitcase. They stole all children's things (son 8 years). Disgusted. I called the airport, answered standardly - come to Ekaterinburg, contact the police. I tried to explain that I need to find the rippers first of all the airport, they did not understand me. Apparently the rippers know where you can rob your luggage with impunity, all on the flow.

I want to know where you can wait for a crash with 24,00 to 3,00 nights in vip hall probably very expensive?

Hello, we know you have the cheapest tickets Yekaterinburg - Simferopol 2 adults and one child, we 3 years old only direct flight.

11 2016 June, first in St. Petersburg detained flight. Now Koltsovo has accumulated a huge amount of passengers - luggage not issue !!!! 6.21 morning.

Please clean up the mess in the toilet on the floor of the international departures 2 for Chocolate in the corner. There are constantly full of smoke and it makes workers. In principle, there is need of repair because the smell is already resistant.
