To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down of what travellers have reported to us during their time at Port Harcourt Airport.

What to Expect

  • A single terminal with separate areas for domestic and international flights.
  • Very few facilities here; the terminal architecture itself is depressing with a tent serving as the Arrivals Hall (August 2016).
  • The few rest rooms are rarely clean.
  • Air conditioning rarely seems to work.
  • Reported construction and improvements, announced in 2012-2013, seem extremely slow or that they haven’t even started yet.
  • Many travellers report some staff asks for handouts, money, gifts, etc., or will go through your luggage to delay you.
  • Some airlines, including Air France, conduct extra flight-side security screens.
  • A small eatery is available.
  • One traveller reports that luggage is claimed from a stack of bags instead of a conveyor belt. (Aug 2016)
