khartoum airport guide

In this section you will find traveller airport reviews as well as our Khartoum Airport Guide with info on WiFi, lounges, facilities and services....and yes, even the names of some airport hotels in case you decide that sleeping in the airport is not for you!

The litter bins are emptied on a strict schedule, so garbage is piling up in a circle around them. Toilets can be found by just following the stench.  I recommend you have a look at the toilets first and decide afterwards whether you really need anything to eat or drink. - Wolfram

Airport Overview

khartoum airport

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 Khartoum International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A spacious and modern, recently-built international airport, consisting of an International, Domestic, Arrival and Hajj/Omra Terminals. The terminal is reportedly clean and air-conditioned with limited shopping and dining options.
  • Have patience and a flexible schedule, as flights tend not to run on schedule.
  • Beware of the unofficial “departure fee”
  • Chaotic and disorganized airport procedures. There are no queues or lines for anything. It is every man for himself, so watch out for those sharp elbows as you work your way to the front of the crowd!
  • “No smoking” signs are largely ignored
  • Possible language barrier. Basic knowledge of Arabic is helpful!
  • No information boards or overhead announcements for boarding.

  • As of May 2017, we have no reviews from travellers who have attempted to sleep in this airport. Write a review to help future travellers!
