I arrived at Kabul on 21 Aug 2006 actually it didn't seem so bad its very small and it only has one conveyer belt so some guy had to take off the luggage to keep it getting swamped. Its a long way to the car park on dirt roads but it works. Problem arriving at the airport to depart to Dubai stopped at a checkpoint 100 yards from the airport stopped again 50 yds from the airport got frisked and told to go to get my luggage checked. Went into a shed and they insisted in opening every bag one guy took forever then went to the actual airport. Every bag goes through a metal detector and every person then the checked bags go to security for a tag. Check in was OK then through another metal detector get passports checked another metal detector then frisked again then another metal detector go to departure lounge. The flight is called get frisked again get to the plane they check my passport s again get on the plane. In total I was checked 6 times this is a complete joke of an international airport they haven't got a clue. The departure lounge is terrible flies everywhere.
