A recent survey carried out by a travel website has ranked three Nigerian airports among the 10 worst in Africa.
The three airports that made the list were Port Harcourt International Airport in Rivers State which is the first in the list, Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja came as the seventh worst while the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos was ranked as 10th.
The travel website,said the complaints about the airports borders on corruption, crowds, chaos, confusion and uncleanliness including non-standard facilities.
A statement on the website read in part, “One look at the interior of the worst airports in Africa was often enough to convince our voters to splurge on a nearby hotel.
''Top complaints generally revolved around corruption, crowds, chaos, confusion and a total lack of cleanliness five Cs an airport definitely does not want to be associated with.
“Amenities across the board are decidedly scarce if not entirely non-existent, and many airports’ architecture verges on decrepit. You’ll want to arrive in these terminals equipped with your own snacks, your own entertainment, lots of patience and definitely a sense of humour.”
Others which made the survey list were Khartoum International Airport, Sudan (2), Kinshasa N’djili International Airport, Democratic Republic of the Congo (3), Juba International Airport, South Sudan (4), and Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport, Djibouti (5).
Mombasa Moi International Airport, Kenya (6), Luanda Quatro de Fevereiro International Airport, Angola (8) and Douala International Airport, Cameroon (9).
