Worst Airport Of All

K M, April 4, 2012 at 8:41 am

I live in Al Khobar and had to use this airport several times. The airport is deserted, with very few flights. The airport staff would feel offended if you dare talk to them. Immigration lines are not too long here but more time is spent in shuffling queues and listening to immigration officers shouting at the passengers. The immigration people are rude/arrogant/lazy and wouldn’t mind taking (long and several) breaks without caring about the people in the queue. Don’t expect anything less than 4 hours for immigration for a first entry. PLEASE USE BAHRAIN AIRPORT AND DRIVE THROUGH THE CAUSEWAY. THIS IS ONE OF THE WORST AIRPORTS IN THE WORLD!

Worst Service

Junaid Razak, November 2, 2011 at 2:37 pm

I currently live in DMM itself and have travelled a dozen times from this airport, nor have I been satisfied for once. The service provided is so out of order and the immigration and check in counters work as desired by the officials. They often have tea breaks as they desire and do not care to look at the queues that have been waiting. International standards to this airport I believe is granted only due to the unique and huge infrastructure. The amount of cafes and lounges can be counted in your fingers. Officials are careless about passengers’ doubts and queries. I recommend travelling through BAH airport as it’s got a class of its own.

Avoid DMM

Temporary Resident, July 30, 2011 at 12:20 pm

As I currently live in Saudi, I’ve had the chance to travel through Dammam (DMM) airport as well as Bahrain (BAH) airport. I’d agree with other posters that you should generally try to use BAH instead of DMM. Contrary to other posts, it is a shorter travel time from DMM to Al Khobar than from BAH, but only my minutes. However, the roads are much worse than those to BAH. The major disadvantage of BAH is crossing the causeway. Usually it isn’t a problem but during peak holidays and Thursday and Friday it is very slow due to the Saudis coming back from Bahrain. Wait times at the border have been as much as 4 hours in extreme cases. Flying out of DMM isn’t so bad but leaves a lot to be desired. There is only one duty free shop, two coffee shops, and one snack kiosk once you get past security. More importantly, there are no bars in DMM. Security can be somewhat slow due to the lax nature. Flying in to DMM is the problem. They are just not set up to manage large incoming flights and don’t care that they are wasting your time. Shutting passport control down for hours at a time and re-shuffling lines is very common place with delays of up to 2 hours being common. When possible, I fly through BAH.

The main problem is the location. This is the reason why it is so uncrowded. It’s just too far from anything! Dammam isn’t that close by, and driving to Al-khobar is much longer. Many people fly into Bahrain and then drive into Dammam/Al-khobar, which believe it or not, is actually takes less time than driving to KFIA! The roads themselves leading to the airport aren’t so great either. They are improving, but still need some work. Now, as for the airport itself…it has improved quite a bit. "Duty free" is still sub-par, but there are now more places to eat, and the quality offered has improved. The waiting areas are much more comfortable now, and there are now smoking lounges, which is good. So overall, the airport itself isn’t bad. And as mentioned, since much of the airport is idle, it’s never too crowded.

Not Much Popint In Having This Airport

Terence Curran, May 17, 2010 at 11:00 pm

I travelled to Suadi Arabia to do some work for Aramco, I changed planes in Bahrain, and then went on to Dammam, why? I then travelled back most of the way I had come from Bahrain to Dharan, if only I had known I would have stopped in Bahrain, and crossed the causeway into Dharan. What is the point of building this airport, miles from anywhere! Flying back the other way, I again went to DMM, and changed planes in Bahrain. DMM was totally disorganised, there was one queue for immigration, and everyone had yo join it, then a miracle happened they suddenly opened 4 queues just as I to to the front of the queue – I was now in the wrong queue (it was for Saudi people), and I should now join the proper queue – no way was I going to go and stand at the back of the queue after queuing for 30 minutes. I stuck it out but it still took another 10 minutes to get my passport stamped so I could continue, so altogether I spent 40 minutes queuing for immigration to get out of the country. After passing through immigration I thought I could at least buy something in the departure lounge! You are joking aren’t you. One shop selling a few dusty articles, one kiosk selling tea and coffee, nothing else, just mile after mile of nothing! There were three flights about the same time, and looking at the departure board there was not much else flying from there! Next time I will stop in Bahrain, and return from Bahrain, at least that has shops, and cafes that sell things!

Is Not So Bad

Alam Mohammad Helal, November 2, 2009 at 4:30 pm

I’ve been using DMM airport since it was old for international as well as domestic segments. The new DMM has improved but not comfortable as Riyad but better than Jeddah. In all over Saudi Arabia non-Arabic have problems but interestingly Saudis speak English a bit better than Russian or Latin American but they insist on speaking Arabic. Domestic terminal used by 90% local Saudis so airport staff rarely speak English and if you understand Arabic and speak a bit then you will be very comfortable in any airport or any offices in Saudi Arabia. It’s true that passengers assistance is poor but all international airlines check-in counters you can find expat (English speaking) with local staff.

Not As Bad As Other Reviews Suggest

Andrew Smith, September 16, 2009 at 7:27 am

I can’t speak for Mr. Lord S. S., but my arrival went very smoothly, I really had no major problems. As for Mr. Omar Qazi, I guess either I was there on a good day, or he was there on a bad day. True, not everyone speaks English, but there are those who do, it’s not that bad. As for the airport itself, it’s rather mixed. The check-in area looks rather lovely, but the terminals themselves are not so spectacular, and different areas look better than others. The international lounge is much nicer than the domestic one, the dining and duty free are much better in the international lounge. The layout and interior design are also mixed; it’s not a comfortable airport, that’s for sure. Much better than the airport in Jeddah, but not as good as the one in Riyadh.

DMM is horrible. I flew in and spent an hour and a half being moved from one desk to another wanting this bit of paper and that, finally assembling what was needed to get through immigration. I think they are too fond of Terry Gilliam’s ‘Brazil’ there. The border guard who let me in kept asking questions I didn’t understand. It sounded like he was asking me if I am an Argentine. Finally he let me through. Flying out, it seemed they had never seen an airline ticket before. A small army of people huddled over my paper ticket and made three phone calls before finally letting me through. My visa was single entry, which seems to be a meeting of the minds.

Poor Airport

Omar Qazi, September 26, 2006 at 12:54 pm

As a commuting student, I have gone through the DMM airport quite a number of times. I have also been to almost every other airport in the Gulf as well as a few others. What can I say about an airport where no employee can speak English! This is an international airport for crying out loud. The least they can do is teach every employee some other language other than their own so they can at least COMMUNICATE to the passengers. You know, that sometimes comes in handy.
