According to travel website ‘The Guide to Sleeping in Airports’, India’s Chennai Airport is one of the worst airports in Asia.

While the airport escaped the embarrassment of being in the top 5, it could not escape the shame of being in the 7th position in the list.


What is more, while survey states that the international airport has one of the worst baggage handling problems, but that is not THE biggest problem that they face at the international airport.


According to the respondents, one of the worst features is the airport’s unclean bathrooms where not only are floors filthy, but the toilets have never been-scrubbed and taps always leaking, thus implying that they are one of they are one stinkiest of Airports in Asia.

The survey was conducted with about 26,297 fliers as respondents to identify the world’s worst and best airport terminals.

The survey focused on travellers’s basic facilities which was divided in four categories – comfort, convenience, cleanliness and customer service.


The travellers also complained about unhelpful staff and said :

“Baggage-wise, complaints begin with the sheer amount of time it takes for your bags to disembark from the plane. Once you have them, it is then unlikely that you’ll find a working trolley or helpful staff – in spite of there being so many of them wandering around.”

A traveller also pointed out that the even parts of the glass ceiling fall down.

The list was topped by Kathmandu’s Tribhuvan International Airport followed by Tashkent International Airport in Uzbekistan and Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport in Afghanistan.

Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport, in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Min City and Islamabad’s Benazir Bhutto International Airport round off the top 5.


Port Harcourt International Airport, Nigeriawas ranked the world’s worst.
