Worst experience ever!! I travelled yesterday Friday 23rd of September 2022 and I was so hurt by the way these attendants at Entebbe airport treat people. Specifically at the checkin point. They are so rude and not even knowledgable of the various requirements needed for travel. Just getting me out of the line and not even seeing my documents which were right. And then wanting to get money through false accusations!! You know what hurts the most them treating me with so much disrespect and treating forigners with so much dignity. Black or white, Ugandan or not we are all human beings and doing each other a service at the end of the day!! This makes me look down on my own country Uganda because of ignorant attendants at Entebbe airport!!! Bambi train your people and they should treat all customers fairly and with RESPECT!!

I have never seen such a corrupted airport. June 16, 2022 I flew from Kampala Entebbe to Dubai. The security with dogs are corrupt asking for money otherwise accusations that they found something in the trunk. I was in a discussion for 40 minutes. And not paying 1 cent. BEWARE PEOPLE.
