There is rarely power and no A/C in a country that regularly exceeds 40 degrees. - a guest traveller
To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Juba International Airport.
What to Expect
- A tiny, single-terminal international airport ill-equipped to handle the amount of passengers that travel through it. Intermittent power outages, lack of air-conditioning and swarms of people packed into the tiny terminal led one reviewer to describe the airport as a “mosh pit sauna”.
- According to a recent review (Nov, 2016), tents have been set up as makeshift terminals to process departures, arrivals, and baggage claim, leaving passengers exposed to direct sunlight, heat and the elements. Dress accordingly, bring bottled water, and hope for the best!
- Airport processes are lengthy, inefficient, chaotic and even unsafe. After clearing security checkpoints, passengers are allowed to come and go from the airport as they please. Flight information is shouted out instead of posted and Immigration/Customs lines are ridiculously slow. You will need lots of patience to travel through this airport!
- If you somehow manage to muster up an appetite, there is an overpriced food concession in the airport.
- Broken seats...IF you can find one unoccupied.
- Filthy restroom. Bring hand sanitizer!
