    North Terminal – Possibly the worst airport in the world. For such a rich nation they do not spend much on infrastructure. Lack of seats, extremely overcrowded, 3hr bottle neck through visa control with women and children being trampled only thing missing was pistols being fired in the air, boarding was not displayed on boards so nearly missed my flight. Avoid at all costs around Hajj, Eid and Ramadan

    (Guest Review by Ali) Terminal for foreigners and Hajj Terminal – The King abdul aziz international airport in jeddah is so far the worst airport ive ever been to. I have been 4 times here as a pilgrim to do umrah and whenever i come i experience such a awful experience here. The authorities in the immigration counters are the worst and most cruel human beings ive ever seen. They have no care for the passengers. There will be such a long queue of passengers waiting and while the authorities will be having a chat with other authorities or their too busy sipping their cup of tea. Passenger even wait for 3 to 4 hours in queue. They treat passengers in such a bad when passengers come into the counter as if passengers are criminals or their slaves. The authorities behave in such a uneducated manner that you tempt to imagine what made them sit in that position. Their english speaking skills are almost nill with some authorities not even know to pronounce numbers in english. Worst airport ever!!!!

    Jeddah Airport

    South Terminal – Males and females go through security through separate lines but since men have three counters and women only one, the latter is significantly longer. Also, there were many people who would jump the line by budding in aggressively or slyly slip in, usually in front of foreign tourists. While covered but not in traditional dress, I received many glares from men in line who would look away once I made eye contact. Most of the male and female passengers did not understand how security works and kept coins, phones, and even purses and bags on their bodies when going through the scanner, which slowed the process down a lot. Once the debacle of security was over, the waiting area was jammed with people sleeping and sitting on the floors. There was a significant lack of seating available for the number of people there. There were male passengers who lit up cigarettes and openly smoked and then put out the bud on the floor. Not sure how lighters and matches made past the security. The washrooms were terrible and dirty. There was a Tim Hortons where two drinks cost triple it would at home but thankfully they accepted credit cards. The duty free area was a joke. It was a terrible experience and we will never fly with Saudia airlines again.

    Worst Airport I have ever visited

    Jeddah airport is not a friendly place for people who don't speak local language. I had to wait for 6 hours in Jeddah airport and I felt I was there forever. It was a small terminal with thousands of people waiting for the flights. The airport was crowded and dirty. There was only toilet for thousand people and it was so very dirty. Security officers were very rude. I was so happy to hear the boarding announcement after horrible six hours in that small and crowded airport.But the happiness was only for few minutes. Aircraft was parked so many miles away from terminal and we had a 20 minutes bus journey !!!
