The departures hall is not really large enough to cope with the number of aircraft that depart at a similar time. This means it can get very crowded, especially on Mondays, when one aircraft after another leaves for the UK or Europe.
Once through to the departure lounge there is a large seating area, a few shops to buy those last minute souvenirs and a cafe and bar, serving drinks, coffee and snacks.
