Just like winning the lottery there are some things that you just do not expect to do. Giving Kabul airport a good review is one of them. But here it is. I have been travelling to Kabul for many years and have always hated the airport battle. But the new airport is different. If all you want to do is got on and off of a flight quickly and efficiently Kabul airport does that very well. The 2 hour queues at immigration are gone. More like 2 minutes now. Baggage reclaim is as good as anywhere else in he world. It took about half an hour from landing to being out of the airport. No problems with check in either. My Turkish flight left exactly on time. Don't expect too much in the way of shops or business lounge in the departures area but it is adequate. Wifi Internet is working well and free. There are lots of security checks on the way into the airport. Expect 4 lots of X-ray checks and various vehicle and body searches. That is just a part of life in Kabul these days. Overall a good and efficient experience and a big change from the old Afghan way.
