"Interminable wait at Passport Control at Munch Airport. (Terminal 1)"

Review

The IATA code for Munich Airport (MUC) seemed to appropriately express my thoughts and feelings on arrival from the superb Terminal 5 at LHR on Sunday 27th November 2013.

Munich is a large and important airport.
My arriving experience was not what I expected of such an important European entry point. My BA flight arrived from Heathrow as about 10 minutes late.
There was already a mass of bodies at the Passport Control area in Terminal 1.
The mass of people waiting to have their documents checked was not moving at all.
After several minutes, and some of us deciding to sit on the floor while we waited, there was a slight movement forward.
There were no clear indicators of which officers were dealing with E.U Passport holders and those from other countries. There were only four immigration officers on duty. The whole process took 35 minutes of delay. This applied equally to Germany nationals arriving back in their own country as to non Germans.
As European travel is supposed to be borderless for EU Nationals I was dismayed at the time lost at Passport control and no explanation as to whether this was normal or exceptional.

Sweeter music for the return on Tuesday 29th Oct 2013.
I took the Airport train from the town centre to the Airport- it was quite crowded but fast and efficient ( one must be careful to get off at the right Airport Station- the first one is for the Cargo Terminal and airport Offices!)
The signs to Terminal 1 were easy to follow and the terminal itself at 8. Pm was not crowded.
All the facilities that one would need were open and running.
A good departure experience- spoiled by the Document Control queue on arrival.

Conclusion
Facilities: Very Poor
Check-In Area: Very Poor
Security Level: High

"excellent experience in this airport"

Review

Really a nice airport, pleasant terminal, connected to the city center with S-Bahn line 8 (I found it a bit long, but that's my own opinion), easy to find your way and gate, clean, efficient staff, and no stress at all... I really enjoyed my time in this airport.

Conclusion
Facilities: Excellent
Check-In Area: Good
Security Level: High
