I am desperate to find as much information as possible on this airport, what airlines fly there, what there is to do, how big it is, passenger numbers, amount of flights, ANYTHING. But most importantly, is spotting ALLOWED and is it legal? Is there anywhere to spot? HAs anyone been there? I'd love to know!

I was once there. They main thing I noticed is that, due to the climate, the building has almost no glass in the windows. The passenger waiting area is in the open air (with just the roof of the building above). Great experience!

Volare Airlines/Air Europe, use to have many weekly flights from MXP,VRN and FCO (mainly in the winter season). They fly there with A321 with a refuel stop in Luxor or non-stop with B763 and sometime B772.
The widebody flights sometime continue to Zanzibar.

Hi! Thanks to all who replied, and great to see some people have been here!
First, to Tommy: You wouldn't happen to have a large version of that photo, would you (I mean, 1024x..), b/c I'd really like to see if there seems to be anything down there. Who were you flying with? I'll be there from... 7th August until the 14th (I think), although I'm not entirely sure (July has 31 days, right? ).That is an awesome picture!
Air Orange - Wow, no glass? Well, I think I'll be on Kenya Airways so it'll most likely be a 737, hopefully i'll be able to get a couple of shots of that and anything else that comes in!
From Tommy's picture, looks like it could be a great place to spot, apart from the lack of traffic . I have asked a Kenyan travel representative to get as much info on planespotting as possible, so hopefully that'll yield some positive results.
