  • When will norwich airport spend some off the £10 fee on some outdoor cover? NIA is convenient but so old hat, walking to and from the aircraft in the rain and cold is not fun! Now let's pretend I'm the Boss at NIA. Ok team let's spend lots of Joe publics fee on a VIP lounge that nobody uses! We don't want the scummers to have soft seat's leave them the metal one's in the departure lounge! All agree! Yes boss Yes boss. Come on Nowich think about your everyday punters!

  • As norwich are doing so well they should scrap the exit tax of £ 10 if they are truly thinking of the people that use the airport. Been no improvements in years !!
