How to: Donetsk Airport, International departures

Once inside the terminal go directly to the second floor (International Departures).
Here you will find a large room where you can sit, buy some snack or ask information to your air company (at this floor there are the offices of Lufthansa, Austrian, Utair and Turkish airline; the other ones are on the first floor)
Here you can also weight your bag or if you need fill down a custom declaration, next to the balance you can find several customs declaration forms.

When will come the check in time, you will see the your flight number appear over the white door at the top of the room. (again next to the balance)

Cross the door and chose if to pass through the red or green corridor. If you don’t have anything to declare chose the green corridor.

Once passed the customs control, you can reach the check in counters.
Here they will issue you the boarding card, weight your luggage but they will not take it, you have to give your luggage later.

Now go on and pass the security check. After it you can finally get rid of your luggage giving it to the a man waiting for them. (about luggage, here is everything done by hand)

Finally you have to pass the passport control and reach the waiting room.

At the end of the waiting room, there also a duty free shop and some coffee bar.

When will be the boarding time, a woman will pass through the waiting room calling for the flight.
Follow her and she will bring you and all other passengers downstairs where a bus will bring you to the plane.
