ENTEBBE AIRPORT review : 19 September 2008 : by André Krummacher
Customer Rating : 4/5
I live in Kampala and fly in and out of this airport regularly. It is a rather small and quiet
airport, clean and modern after the refurbishment. There is not much to do, a few duty free shops
(overpriced), craft shops and a restaurant. Check-in area can be very crowded especially for BA, KLM
and Emirate flights. For all other international flights, it is sufficient to arrive at the airport
1 hour before departure. The best this airport has to offer is probably the lounge. Clean, extremely
comfy sofas, big TV screens, friendly service, hot showers, internet access and an electronic

Very pleasant small and quiet airport with a couple of craft shops for last minute purchases. Good
cafe and pleasant atmosphere. I found this to be a clean and efficient airport. Immigration staff
were friendly and efficient.

Inbound they are now taking the passengers thru a temporary barrack on
the side of the terminal. At the moment the arrival hall is being
upgraded for CHOGM. Anyway, it went quite smooth through immigration,
but the baggage area was very tiny for a A330 full of baggage. Departure
was smooth. Remember that all of the airport is non-smoking. If you pass
immigration, there is really no way back. Lots of crafts to be bought if
you have not bought enough already. One restaurant with a ok selection.
Need new airconditioning.

Inbound: no problems, quick and efficient. Outward bound: Spent an
uncomfortable night in the public area on hard chairs and passed the
time swatting mosquitos. Any air conditioning was made redundant by the
doors being kept wide open. However check in was efficient and friendly.
What a contrast when in the departure lounge. It was much cooler and
refreshments were available with a reasonable variety on offer. General
comment on the people and the country: wonderful.

Not much in terms of Air activity. Probably the best attention I have ever got from airport staff
maybe because not so many people go through. Staff were genuinely friendly and willing to offer
help. Apart from the local crafts there is not much to buy from the duty free that you wouldn't
find at your average African airport. Only 2 terminals; departures and arrivals. What else would
you expect from such a small place. Worth noting is the fact that you may have start your journey
from Kampala at least 3 hours before departure as traffic from the city can be such a nightmare.
Entebbe Airport by Dave Johnson
Nice airport and not very busy. Staff were flexible and knew their job well. Business lounge is
comfortable, though the food is nothing exciting. Duty free options beat Nairobi, but do not both
if you are transiting through Europe or Dubai.
Expect an hour drive to Kampala, a fair bit more if you are hitting morning rush hour.
