There are substantial and ongoing improvements to Freetown Airport. They have been rebuilding the terminal building around the old structure for the last few months. Departure and arrival procedures are now quite painless compared with the hot and basic conditions before. The check in area is large and clean and I did not have to queue for long. They could still do with increasing the air conditioning in that area though. Security is good and immigration is using new computers and biometric systems. The departure lounge is now quite big and comfortable. There are a few well stocked duty free shops. The original restaurant is still available as well as a new one upstairs. The new one is not well signposted. Overall a big improvement. FNA now compares favourably with other airports in Africa.
