Airport Overview

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 Antonio Agostinho Neto International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A small single-terminal international airport with minimal shopping and dining options.
  • Lax security and unsecured airport perimeter.
  • Passengers are able to walk back and forth between landside and airside after going through security, and locals are able to walk right onto the tarmac due to lack of security fencing around the perimeter of airport property.
  • Aggressive immigration officers.
