Expect delays on arrival at Denparsa airport

I took me nearly three hours to get through the airport, a couple of days ago. I was told sometimes they do this deliberately because they want people to pay money to get through quicker. Is this true?

No, not deliberate, just teething problems.

I agree, if everyone paid to get through...the queues would be log jammed through there as well.

It depends on how many planes arrive at the same time. We were through in about 30 minutes a week ago. It's the luck of the drawn I'm afraid.

I hope it is not true but our last arrival was saved by VIP.It was indeed a very busy arrival time which we knew in advance.

I came on Jet Star and got in at about 4pm and got out of the airport just before 7pm.

Personally as frustrating as it can be I would rather wait the 3 hours and be processed properly through immigration than use a VIP service where you are not sighted along with your passport by an immigration official. Those that think this is ok would be the first to kick up when a person travelling on a false passport or a potential terrorist used this type of service to bypass the official process to gain entry into any country.

Has anyone experienced delays with the Jetstar 8.30am arrival from Perth?
