    There is an awesome lounge above the terminal. The staircase is right behind the escalators once you go up from security. Great way to pass some time with food and drinks and a scenic ambiance

    Watch out for queue busters. There is a bar with good views upstairs on 3rd floor but lighting a cig is tricky since the lighters gets taken by the airport security

    Best looking airport in Kerala.. Hats off to the guys who decided to give it the unique Kerala architecture instead of making it look like glass enclosures seen in other cities worldwide.

    Mattancherry Palace was a gift to the Raja of Kochi by the Portuguese in 1555. The star attractions here are the preserved Hindu murals, depicting scenes from the Ramayana & Mahabharata.

    Small and no frills. But at least it doesn't lead you to believe that there is a special world waiting for you inside. It is what it is and you can walk to the aeroplane. Love it!

    The international terminal has a superb bar Firefly with a smoking zone. Very spacious and it's super cheap compared to the other horrendous airport bars. Check this one out.

    Read tips with caution. It seems most of the positive tips refer to the International terminal. The Domestic terminal is another story. Limited food options all prior to security check-in. Stock up!

    Even if you have an eTicket, bring a paper copy of your itin to get through the front doors. You can take a printout at the biz centre, several feet to the left of the Intl. Departure gate entrance.

    One of the best coffee shops Nilgiri Cafana. You'll get good discount at shops if you are a platinum master card holder. Has all the qualities of an international airport.

    Takes a really long time to get through security - 7 different people asked to see passport and boarding pass, some only 5 feet from the previous one. Get to re airport at least an extra hour ahead.

    It's a bit crowded. When you walk out you may feel like walking on a red carpet. Poeple wait outside and look at you like u are an alien Long tiring queues in emigration can be expected.

    ATMs inside often run out of cash and hence closed. Remember to withdraw from South Indian bank right outside arrivals before checking in.

    Time yourself to be on time; there isn't much to do anyway. All shops selling memorabilia and chips are before security check, so shop before checking in. Not many food options as well.

    Be prepared for detailed scrutiny if you are coming in on an international flight.. All passengers are considered as potential gold smugglers unless proven otherwise

    It's congested nowadays it's not the same quaint airport back in 2000. Ac is stuffy and the security check and the waiting hall is too congested, comfortable wide individual cushion chairs though

    The most homely airport ever! The architecture of the airport is a totally different one. The food is insanely expensive. This is for those who don't like the conventional airport designs.

    If you are here at departure you are lucky. If you are at arrival gate. Welcome to Hell. People don't seem friendly. May be they need some lessons on hospitality. They think travellers are slaves.
