To help you plan your layover, here is a quick run-down of what travellers have reported to us during their time at Dhaka Airport.
What to Expect
- Many travellers have reported that airport staff and security have asked for handouts, bribes, etc., and some felt verbally harassed. This may be improving in the last 1-2 years.
- This is an old, small-time, chaotic airport with a few eateries but otherwise no services or amenities. It seems like there are a lot of security guards but the security is weak or non-existent.
- This small airport is divided into three terminals: T1 and T2 are international terminals and the third is the Domestic Terminal. They are easy to navigate.
- Travellers report poor and dirty bathroom facilities.
Where to Sleep
- We have very few reviews from travellers who have spent the night here. If you plan to spend the night, please have a backup plan.
- For uninterrupted sleep, there are a few nearby hotels. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.
Good to Know
- Economy class travelers can buy a pass and relax in two airport lounges; both have showers. See Airport Lounges in the airport guide below for locations and rates.
