    PH Airport

             

    9.10.2018

    Pros: Departure refurbished .

    Cons: No AC.

    I travel frequently from PH to Lagos and have no problems with anyone asking for bribes. I always make sure I get there early and meet the same friendly young man who will stand in the hot airport hall and get me my boarding card while I can sit and relax. For this we have agreed I pay him 1000 Naira. I think this is a small price to pay for the service. ( 2.5 $). The immigration , customs are friendly and of course see me as the wealthy ”Oyibo” white man and sometimes ask for some small money. This is common around the world and not restricted to Nigeria. All in all if I approach Nigerians with a smile and respect I always get it back. I have been in Nigeria for 20 years and come across friendly people mostly. The ”bad apples” are in every country.
    If all coming to Nigeria would behave like guests they would see a different Nigeria.

    Dislike, It’s a real challenge every time. All “security check” and employees ask you for money. It is so common now, I consider it as a joke. Oh, I have a gret remind. once, big rat was seen on the buffet of the lounge taking awkwardly a cold Pizza slice (probably a regular guest) .. what a wonderful scene.

    Port Harcourt Airport

    Been travelling to and from this airport since 2000. It has got worse as far as corruption is concerned – "What have you got for me ?" "Chop Chop" "Who do you work for? X ….X is a lovely company what has X got for me?" The security (sic) checks are a complete joke which revolve around greedy hands messing around in your bag until filled with Naira – this is why Air France have to have their own security checks out on the tarmac before final boarding. The Departure lounge has been re-furbished and is now much better – Arrivals (as per your current picture) is a complete joke and the worst in any airport I have ever experienced. Top tip – if you can just bring luggage you dont have to put in the hold – it speeds up the whole process (particulary when leaving).

    Port Harcourt Airport

    The new waiting area after check in has no toilet, no vip lounges and ac that would be adequate for a car when the room is massive. The smell of Nigerian food fills the air from the small restaurant in the corner and the only shopping 'experience' you could partake in would be to visit the pharmacy within the waiting area. The upper floor has not been completed and birds now occupy the area. The security and immigration want paying just to get through. The last time I flew international I made 7 (dash) payments just to get to the waiting area. I would rate this airport as terrible.
