Port Harcourt and Lagos Airports Rated Among Worst Airports in the World

Two Nigerian airports – the Port Harcourt International Airport, Omagwa and Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA), Lagos – have been rated among the worst 20 airports in the world by a survey carried out by the Sleep in Airport website

The website ranked Lagos the fifth worst airport in the world while Port Harcourt was ranked the third worst airport globally. The criteria used by the site included comfort (gate seating and availability of rest zones), services, facilities and things to do, food options, immigration/security, customer service, cleanliness, navigation and ease of transit and sleepability.

The website explained that the airports that appeared on the list of worst airports in the world are those that have the capacity to truly offend travellers.
“Within these terminals, there appears to be a general disinterest in a positive traveller experience. In some cases, passengers are made to stand or sit on the floor as they await their flights. In others, the bathrooms don’t have water, toilet paper, or any semblance of cleanliness.

In some cases, the physical structure of the airport is fine, but the personnel are the problem. Got a problem? Don’t expect much in terms of customer service at these airports. If you find yourself travelling through one of these 20 terminals, brace yourself. You’ll want to give yourself just enough time to get in and get out. A minute more and you’ll be unhappy and uncomfortable – a minute less, and you risk missing your flight.

In order of ranking, the worst five airports in the world comprised Juba International Airport, South Sudan (JUB), Jeddah King Abdulaziz International Airport, Saudi Arabia (JED), Port Harcourt International Airport, Nigeria (PHC), Crete Heraklion International Airport, Greece (HER) and Lagos Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Nigeria (LOS), Santorini Thira National Airport, Greece (JTR), Dar es Salaam Julius Nyerere International Airport, Tanzania (DAR), Rhodes International Airport, Greece (RHO), Paris Beauvais-Tille Airport, France (BVA), Tashkent International Airport, Uzbekistan (TAS) and London Luton International Airport, England (LTN).

Others on the list were Rome Ciampino International Airport, Italy (CIA), Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport, Nepal (KTM), New York City LaGuardia, USA (LGA), Chania International Airport, Greece (CHQ), Caracas Simón Bolívar International Airport, Venezuela (CCS), Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport, China (CAN), Cluj International Airport, Romania (CLJ), Islamabad Benazir Bhutto International Airport, Pakistan (ISB), and Addis Ababa Bole International Airport, Ethiopia (ADD).

    1. They shouldn't count PH as an airport. Amaechi was governor for eight years and now minister of transport and still nothing has been done.
      He's only interested in appeasing his hausa/fulani masters by building a rail line to Daura.
      Buhari must continue to rule his followers till 2050.

    2. PORT HARCOURT yes very horrible. Yes is even better a bit.

    3. I agree with the ranking... Anon 11:31,Amechi has no business with building the airport, airports are federal govt properties and not the state.

  2. Oops. For Lagos I concur, so shameful. I think it was a neglect from the past Administrations due to party differences but even now APC is at the National Level, nothing seems changed. It is well with us.

  3. Corruption and greed have landed us where we are now. But the consoling fact ia that our MM2 is by far better than the international airport in Nairobi 😂

  4. Port Harcourt airport ain't good at all

  5. Airport that has no place to sit, is that one airport?
