Shahjalal Airport one of the worst in Asia

  • Published at 07:43 pm October 31st, 2014

Dhaka’s Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport has been ranked one of the worst airports in Asia, according to The Guide To Sleeping in Airports, because of rude service, poor sanitation, inadequate amenities, and an insect problem.

The world’s best and worst airports this year were both in Asia, too. Singapore’s Changi Airport took top honours for the eighteenth year in a row, while Islamabad’s Benazir Bhutto International Airport, likened to “a central prison,” came in at the bottom.

Dhaka airport received the dubious honour of making it to the Asia’s Worst Airport list, where it landed in ninth place. Dhaka airport was described thus: “Everywhere smells, very rude immigration police and airport staff, corrupt people, and insects everywhere.”

Would-be travellers and transit passengers are advised: “If travelling through Dhaka’s international airport, you’d be wise to beeline it to the upstairs floor that is often devoid of the crowds and chaos that characterise the main floor. Otherwise, this airport is known to be dated, slow-moving, insect-filled and short on amenities.”

The survey site’s rankings are based on passenger responses about comfort, conveniences, cleanliness and customer service at airports.

Dhaka airport’s failures with regard to comfort include crowded terminals, uncomfortable and limited seating options, and unpleasant temperatures.
