1. Port Harcourt International Airport (Nigeria)



Traveling through Nigeria's Port Harcourt International Airport any time soon?

Sorry for your luck.

The African terminal received the unfortunate distinction of being named "world's worst airport" in 2015 by travel website The Guide to Sleeping in Airports.

This year's survey, which asked fliers to identify the world's worst and best aviation terminals, attracted 26,297 qualifying responses.
Despite the site's name, airports weren't just rated according to how easy it is to take a nap while inside them.

Sleeping in Airports' readers were asked to judge facilities in four categories: comfort, conveniences, cleanliness and customer service.

What landed Port Harcourt at the top of the pile?

Respondents reportedly complained about unpleasant and unhelpful staff, alleged corruption, a severe lack of seating, broken air-conditioning and the fact that the arrivals hall was inside a tent.

"The good news is that some areas of the terminal have been recently renovated, meaning you can expect actual walls, floors and windows," says the website.

"Though it is a far cry from reasonable, improvements are being made."

2. King Abdulaziz International Airport (Jeddah, Saudi Arabia)

Saudi Arabia's Jeddah King Abdulaziz International Airport held onto its position as world's second worst airport.

Voters were annoyed by the chaotic, crowded, unclean airport -- particularly within the Hajj terminal.

"From smoking in non-smoking areas to the bathroom odor wafting out into the lounges, few people sang praises after spending time here," said Sleeping in Airports.

"Multi-hour immigration queues with distracted and absent officers further aggravated travelers."

Fortunately, the site said Jeddah's days on the list are likely numbered -- the new Jeddah Airport is scheduled to open mid-2016.
