Have used the airport on two occasions in the past, it was in a terrible state. Having said that the airports in a great location and very near city centre. Does anyone know when it will re-open again?

You know what's very sad?
People have been rating this airport as the worst experience ever, and these ratings are supposed to be read by the management or something, but since 2008 people have been mentioning how unclean the airport is, and until now it's the same
it's really sad, if they would have taken an action two years ago it would have been a better place already

I can't even give a rate ... this is the worst thing ... I'm a cabin crew in Abu Dhabi and I find myself so embarrassed when my colleagues from other nationalities keep telling me that they went to Cairo or Alexandria ... I'm embarrassed because I know that the first thing they will say is about the airports. At least Cairo's airport now is a little bit better. I can't say WOW but much much nicer than before. But Alex "OH MY GOD".

really it is too bad in nearly every thing but it is exellent in its site because you can go anywhere in Alex in just 10 to 15 minutes.

the waiting 'lounge' is dirty. got pools of water under the chairs. not to mention it is hot in the airport. the airconditioner is turn on but then of no purpose since everyone inside the airport is smoking. one thing i learn is to never take taxis just outside the airport. i rather walk out from the airport (merely 3minutes of walking) and take taxis from there because the price is cheaper by 5 times. got no signboard what so ever to keep the passengers informed. even the announcement is in arabic and luckily one arabic woman helped me translate the announcement. the arrival/departure hall is confusing. i arrive at the departure hall (without me knowing) and then have to take taxis on my own to the hotel when someone is already waiting for me at the arrival gate. alexandria is a great place but the airport is realllly bad.

The worst airport ever built. The worst people servicing the travelers. The uncleanest. The smallest. All of this goes for borg el arab airport as well.

Well,Alexandria Airport "Nozha" used to be a very nice airport with friendly atmosphere.Currently it is so very bad & is the same like Borg Al Arab airport/Alex.They will both be replaced by a good decent one in mid 2009 as I was informed when I asked the staff in Nozha airport : " what happened to you ? " :-)

One of the worst airports which we have passed through. There is no space and the passenger lounge is so dirty with the toilets also dirty and not clean. The baggage checking in was full of confusion. Our flight was delayed by more than 3 hours and not a single announcement regarding the reason and furstrated passengers with children were waiting all along without having a clue on what is worng with the flight. There was no display on the scheduled flights or delay if any?? The staff at the airport does not know a word of English and arrogance in their communication was so openly displayed.
Alexandria city which we passed through was so impressive but the airport took the sheen of the city. We still wonder if this small message will be taken in the right spirit and action taken.

If you need a car to meet you the best thing to do is to speak to the hotel, as they usually have a contract with local drivers and will arrange to have one pick you up. They usually have a fixed price for the serivce. It's more expensive than a taxi but still cheap by western standards (maybe GBP5 or GBP10 max) and will usually be a much better car than a standard taxi. It's the safest and easiest way if you are new to the area.
[question]c.gower (UK) - May 28, 2008
I will be arriving at ALY at around 02.30 in the morning. as i will be travelling alone and I am a blonde woman, how can i ensure that a taxi will be availbelt to meet me to take me to the metropole hotel in the centre of alexandria? (only 10 minutes ride, so how much should i expect to pay?) naturally, my safety is much much more importnat than the price!!!
[info]Adam Dolani - May 18, 2008
the airport is very unclean, bad
and no services in it, I do believe that could be the same when you come back 100 years form now.
