ZANZIBAR AIRPORT customer review :  13 July 2014 by I Cameron    (UK)

An old fashioned airport which is not very efficient but we left on time and didn't have long to wait in the packed departure lounge. However, there is a US$49 departure tax which is taken at the same time as checking in. It is a very haphazard process with the money just being stuffed in a brown envelope. We paid US$50 and 80,000 Tanzanian shillings for two of us, as I didn't have another $50 note. No change was offered, and when questioned the official said that the tax is actually 85,000 shillings (if not paying in $) which is way more than $49, so he was doing us a favour! Beware - take $ rather than shillings for the departure tax otherwise you end up paying over the odds just to leave the country.

The airport in Zanzibar is out of date. The building looks ok but that is its best feature. It is a good walk from every plane to the terminal. Baggage claim is yet to enter the 'belt era', staff put bags on tables for collection. At departure check-in you need to carry your bag to the x-ray machine and wait for it to pass inspection. There is only one small waiting room with poor air conditioning. Seating is limited. Food and other services in the departure area are limited.

Zanzibar airport would almost be bearable if it wasn't for the fact that its runway is long enough to cope with 767s, which means it becomes chaotic and overloaded when having to cope with direct international flights. The current electricity supply problem also means that the airport is totally reliant on generators. When we arrived early evening we discovered that the generator had packed up, so the airport was operating by candlelight or battery-powered torches. Thankfully our plane was an 15-seater and the non-functioning baggage carousel wasn't required. On the other hand, departure for Dar es Salaam meant a long queue at the curbside check-in at the same time as two flights bound for Italy: utter chaos, but amazingly, planes did take off more or less on time.

Not bad for a regional airport for arriving in Zanzibar. However, on departure the lines can be long (arrive early), departure taxes and security take time. The airport was great in 1940, but like the town (Stonetown) should be declared a UNESCO world historical site. The 'air conditioning' is good but only when they open the lounge windows.
