Djibouti Ambouli Airport customer review

Review by (United States)

When driving to the airport, there is an fee collected at the entrance to the airport parking grounds. The fee I believe was 200 DJF (they will accept 2 USD as well, a slightly worse rate). Once inside, my passport was checked and stamped with ease, and I was upstairs awaiting to go through security. The small bar prior to security has very little to offer, but did have some good Ethiopian beer. WiFi was hit and miss, and the mosquitoes were annoying, but there was plenty of seating. Small duty free shop available. Toilets were in working order, and did not smell. Once past security, there is nothing but chairs and a toilet. Overall, it really is not a bad airport. The worst part is dealing with the people that want to carry luggage for a tip, but that is common in Africa.

Djibouti Ambouli Airport customer review

Review by (United States)

Small airport that you would not want to spend too much time in but that manages to get you on your way reasonably quickly. Inbound immigration and visa on arrival facilities are slightly chaotic though not too bad. Outbound once you clear passport control facilities are limited to not-so-clean toilets a sad looking duty free shop a bar that did not have any change when we visited and a seating area that seemed to be full of mosquitos. If you've stayed in the Kempinski you can use their lounge which is probably the best part of this airport.

Chaos from the time we checked in to the time we got aboard the plane. On arrival we were herded into a small arrivals area with people wandering around trying to find out whether we get our visas first or our passports stamped first. No organisation whatsoever. Departure was delayed by 4+hrs and this airport is not the one you would choose to be delayed in. Toilets were available but were in a disgusting state. The Duty free shop was nearly empty and the range offered very small that is unless you wanted perfume

Departure Tax - reported to be $30 or EUR25. We didn't have to pay it. There was a passport check prior to getting our visas stamped where 'tax' was mentioned. We just looked blank at this and the guy who actually stamped the passport didn't ask us again. Facilities: well not really up to an international airports. There are toilets and a bar and two or three little shops but that's about it.
