I live in Riyadh and this must be the worst airport after Damascus in the Middle East. This airport has no redeeming features both from an aesthetic and service point of view. I flew out of Riyadh on 18 September (start of the Eid break) and there were over 400 people wanting to get in to the secure area to have their passports checked by Saudi immigration. Everyone pushing and shoving (mostly men) with no regard for the welfare of women and children. The response of the Saudi guards was to close the small door that passengers entered irrespective of whether passengers had to catch flights. It took over two hours to make our way through immigration and airport security. As a result the flight left 45 minutes late. Fraport the company that manages Riyadh airport said that there was not much they could do about instituting proper procedures for immigration and security screening.
