Abeid Amani Karume International Airport welcomes travellers flying from Zanzibar with Qatar Airways, and provides an excellent starting point for any journey from Tanzania. Located just five kilometres from Zanzibar’s city centre, the airport is relatively modern and - despite its small size - extremely efficient and welcoming. Staff go out of their way to ensure customers have a smooth and trouble-free start to their travels, and the construction of a new terminal has considerably improved facilities at this friendly airport.
Transportation and parking
Transport to and from the airport is best done by a pre-booked taxi, which your hotel concierge should be able to arrange for you. Buses do run between the city centre and the airport, but they can be very crowded and inconvenient for customers travelling with large amounts of luggage. Parking is limited at the airport and spaces can fill up very quickly, so it is advisable to leave your vehicle at an alternative location and take a taxi to the airport. The taxi rank is located outside the main passenger terminal.
At the airport
Customers flying from Zanzibar with Qatar Airways depart from the main Departures hall in Terminal 2. While check-in times are relatively quick due to the compact nature of the airport, security checks can take considerably longer and are very strict, so allow between one to two hours to check-in and clear security before your flight is due to depart.
Facilities and amenities
Although the new terminal has improved facilities, they are still somewhat limited. A private lounge area is available for First and Business class customers, while the general lounge area in the Departures hall is spacious and well laid out, with good toilet facilities and a baby changing area. Food vendors and vending machines offer a limited selection of on-the-go snacks and drinks. Some retail outlets are available, selling accessories and Duty Free products. Wi-Fi is available in some areas for a fee.
