The air terminal of Olbia Airport was recently (2004) completely renovated, and is now a very modern yet functional building, which is welcoming to all its passengers. It is a comfortably sized terminal, more than capable of handling its passenger traffic. The terminal is also easy to navigate, as it is not that large, therefore arriving passengers will easily find all the facilities and services they need before leaving the airport. In the arrivals area, there are the baggage carousels, from where hold baggage is collected, the Lost and Found office, car rental companies and a tourist information desk.
Passengers, who have ended up in the unfortunate situation where their airline company has misplaced or damaged their luggage, should go immediately to the Lost and Found office, and report the incident. The handling company of your airline carrier will then initiate the process of retrieving your baggage. If your airline is a member of the World Tracer Baggage System then you will be able to follow the progress of the retrieval over the Internet. Luggage that is damaged should also be reported immediately, and may be eligible for replacement.

However, passengers can travel by train to Olbia, and then catch the bus to the airport. There is no train station at the terminal building. There is one exception to trains in Sardinia, and that is the ‘Little Green Train’. This is actually a tourist train that only runs during the summer, and is a very popular attraction on the island. The Green Train is an old and restored steam engine that pulls wooden passenger carriages, and travels to all the more remote parts of Sardinia. Its journey takes you over bridges, through other railway stations and around some magnificent mountain gorges.
