About Nigeria

Flight Destinations in Nigeria

You can fly to Nigeria on regular flights from the UK to both Lagos and Abuja, with onward connections to other Nigerian destinations such as Port Harcourt.

Flying to Nigeria from UK Airports

A selection of quality airlines – think British Airways and Virgin Atlantic – have flights from the UK to Nigeria. When flying direct to Lagos or Abuja from London Heathrow, flying time is approximately six hours 30 minutes. Other airlines – such as Etihad, Turkish Airlines, Royal Air Maroc, Air France and KLM – offer flights to Lagos and Abuja with one stop en route. But if you want to fly to Port Harcourt, you may need to make more stops.

Lagos Murtala Muhammed International Airport is in the suburb of Ikeja, around 30 minutes from Lagos Island, while Abjuja’s Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport is around an hour southwest of downtown Abuja.

Many of Nigeria’s large or high-end hotels will organise airport shuttles as part of their service. Alternatively take a licensed taxi and agree the fare in advance.

Nigeria’s Major Cities

The West African city of Lagos has mushroomed over recent decades from its original core of islands, creating new neighbourhoods and industrial zones on the mainland.

If this is your first time in Lagos, you’ll find a congested, boisterous and relentlessly noisy city with an energy like no other.

As Nigeria’s commercial epicentre, Lagos is home to two globally important ports, major financial institutions, and an arts scene that fuses music, fashion, theatre, film and literature to make Nigeria a culturally rich place to stay.

Add to that a renewed focus on contemporary Nigerian cuisine – alongside all its cosmopolitan international restaurants – and you have a rapidly changing city that powers the biggest economy in Africa.

For something different, visit the Department of Architecture-designed capital of Abuja. The carefully planned city has wide avenues and clearly defined commercial, industrial and residential neighbourhoods. One of Africa’s fastest growing cities, Abuja is home to the Nigerian National Assembly, the Supreme Court and the Presidential Complex.

You’ll also find many luxury hotels in Abuja and upmarket leisure facilities, such as fancy polo clubs and a prestigious 18-hole golf course.

In south Nigeria, Port Harcourt has been a major hub for the petroleum industry since the discovery of crude oil in the mid-1950s. Now one of the largest ports in Nigeria, Port Harcourt’s deep-water port supports the export of products like palm oil, tin, coal and timber as well as petroleum, making it one of the leading industrial cities in Nigeria.
