I’m writing to you from the Puebla Hermanos Serdan Airport. I haven’t been here in a while, and today I discovered the airport has been completely remodeled. I’m not sure that means it’s a better airport, but at least is not as ugly and deserted as it used to be. There are still many thing missing, so here’s a list of what you should know if you’re flying anywhere from Puebla:
- It’s really cold in here, specially if you’re travleing in the morning, so be sure to bring a coat or a jacket.
- There are not stores in here, so if you’re thinking you’ll get at the airport the present you forgot to buy for your sister, she may not get a present at all. So don’t leave Puebla thinking you’ll get your last minute shopping here, make sure you got everything you need the day before.
- On the good side, this is a very small airport, and even though it’s an international one, it’s rarely crowded. If you arrive an hour and 45 minutes before your flight, you’ll be OK. You won’t need more time.
- You’ll get bored, that’s for sure. Bring a book ar a magazine (remember you can’t buy any of this here). You’ll need it.
- Not everybody at the airport speaks english, so be patient if they can’t understand what you’re asking or you can’t understand what they’re answering.
- There are only two very small cafeterias. One before passing security, and one after. There’s not much you can do about it, but I wanted you to know anyways.
- When I say it’s a small airport I mean it! Think of a train station in a very small town, that’s how small our airport is. You can’t get lost in here, even if you wanted.
I know this all sounds terrible, but is not. It’s a very comfortable airport because you don’t have to make endless lines or walk through crowded terminals. You just have to show up. So I hope you have a more pleasent wait with these few recommendations I wish I had follow today.
Have a safe flight and come back soon!
