In 2014, this region didn’t garner quite enough criticism for us to definitely release a list – but 2015 proved to be a little different. From rude awakenings and midnight evictions to extra-old terminals with nothing to do and nowhere to sit, voters were particularly unimpressed with these airports. High prices, long queues, large crowds and confusing layouts did little to appease our weary voters, who fumed as they tried to weave their bodies around multiple armrests as they waited for their flights to depart.

These are the Top 5 Worst Airports in the South Pacific based on overall airport experience as determined by voters in our 2015 Airport Survey:

  1. Port Moresby Jacksons International Airport (Domestic), Papua New Guinea (POM)
  2. Cairns International Airport, Australia (CNS)
  3. Hobart International Airport, Tasmania (HBA)
  4. Perth International Airport, Australia (PER)
  5. Papeete Fa’a’ā International Airport, Tahiti (PPT)
