Nigeria dismisses world’s worst airport rating

Unhelpful staff, demands for bribes, lack of seating, broken air-conditioning and a tent for an arrivals hall. Nigeria’s Port Harcourt International Airport was recently voted the worst in the world.

The damning verdict came from a travel website,, based on feedback from thousands of travellers on criteria such as terminal services and facilities, cleanliness and comfort.

As well as the dubious global honour, Port Harcourt, Nigeria’s oil hub, was described as “the dirtiest and most corrupt airport in Africa”.

The capital, Abuja, and financial hub, Lagos, were judged seventh and 10th worst on the continent.

But the country’s aviation regulator, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN), disputed the ranking.
