I fly Ryanair, OK?! Don't judge me...
I have to say of the way out there, middle of no where, no where near the location you're supposed to go, discount Ryanair serving airports this is one of the best! Now don't get ahead of me I'm not saying this is the best airport, just one of the better ones.
Located within a half an hour drive of Venice this airport does have convenience on its side. There are several options to get from Treviso to Venice with the Atvo Bus being the best option. I found the set up of the airport convenient and efficient though I didn't have to deal with customs so I can't speak to that.
If you're traveling within the EU and looking for a reasonable trip to Venice do yourself the favor of looking into Aeroporto Civile di Treviso. It's no Marco Polo but the savings are worth it.
Not a great airport -- small, inefficient queuing (2 hrs) but reasonably clean -- and you can get food. Expect your typical budget airline experience of charging heavily for over weight bags, and extras.
Make sure you buy your bags ahead of time and try to print your boarding passes, and checkin online.
Another review mentioned fees for not printing your boarding pass -- this is incorrect. There are fees for no checking in, but once you checkin then you just go to the "non-self bag checkin" queue and they give print your boarding passes as normal without a fee.
Also, Ryanair are generous with carry on - 2 x bags pee person (1 x 10kg), so we were over on weight and just took a bag as cabin luggage -- problem solved. Hope this helps
The airport was fine maybe even great, but the Airline Ryan Air is awful. If you don't have a boarding pass printed you get charged 70 euro ($100 USD while we were there) also they charge you for checked bags by the kilogram. 15kg was 30 euro and 20 kg was 40 euro. also it is a 20 euro charge for each kilo over. We were throwing away pillows, books, and clothes in the airport to try to make weight. We also layered up with our clothes. My fiancé was wearing shorts and a shirt under her dress and heaviest high heals. It was ridiculous.
Also the seats didn't recline on the plane. The flight attendants seemed more concerned with selling duty free items and phone cards than anything else.
This Airline would be fine if you have one small carry on and access to a printer.
This airport caters almost exclusively for Ryanair flights across Europe so you can fly directly between out of town airports for your ill convenience.
Well, that aside this airport is quite small but not teeny tiny. What I liked about it was the fact that they had not hauled the prices up to ridiculous levels for food OR souveniers. Even the vending machine was good value - I spend my last 60c on a cherry croissant.
What I did not like was the fact it was clearly understaffed. I know we were that last flight of the day (can they really not wait 30 minutes later to close the shops after we've got on the plane?) but it seemed silly that it took so long when it was sort of obvious that it didn't need to take so long.
Anyway. It was overall a pleasant experience. The bus into Mestre/Venice waits for you and is E10 return. Easy peasy.
Small, ryanair only airport. One hour from venice Piazzale roma. Eating place only outside, before the security check.
Beware that at the security check they measure and check the weight of your hand baggage, the lady seems strickt and will not let you in if you have two piece of hand baggage...
Very small airport, far from Treviso and Venice.
Economic but uncomfortable.
Small, functional, cheap. All the usual hallmarks of a Ryanair low cost airport. The airport is about an hour bus ride away from Mestre and Venice. The bus service has setup specifically for Ryanair, so if the flight is late, the bus will wait. I think the price wasn't too expensive, maybe six euros each way.
The airport is quick to transit through arrivals and departures. There are really very few airlines using it, only Ryanair and the Italian low cost airlines. Its definitely not one of the most exciting airports to pass through. I think there was a cafe/restaurant and two shops. Still, it does the job, and I really don't care when it allows for cheap holidays to a nice place like Venice. I will definitely use it again with Ryanair.
If you get there early for a flight, I would recommend spending some time in one of Treviso's cafes and restaurants.
