Its history is as diverse as its culture, but deciding on flights to Nigeria and touring one of the most varied countries in Africa is worth any price. When your Nigeria flight arrives, you will bear witness to more than 250 different traditions, languages, and sagas recalling ancestors and past affiliations.

Nigeria flights arrive on the west coast of Africa near Chad, Cameroon, Benin and Niger, and sits along the Atlantic Ocean (Gulf of Guinea). Flights to Nigeria send travelers along the Nigeria coast, where the site of the Niger Delta protrudes among other smaller rivers and streams. But flying to Nigeria is only half the fun. Take a hike through one of the many rain forests or trek through Nigeria’s deserts.

While tourism remains a staple to the Nigerian economy, its main source of income comes from being Africa’s largest oil producer.

What is good to know if travelling to Nigeria?

  • As the most populous country in Western Africa, Nigeria dominates the region politically and economically and its population has roots dating back to 9000 BC. Nigeria has been colonized by two European powers, the Portuguese and the British, and Nigeria successfully gained its independence from Great Britain in 1960.
  • Nigeria is popular with film enthusiasts and film industry professionals looking to check out Nollywood, the Nigerian film industry based in Lagos and Abuja. Nollywood’s presence has boosted the economy in these cities, and Nigeria’s presence in popular culture continues to grow after MTV chose to host the first ever African Music Awards in Abuja in 2008.
  • With artifacts found in Igbo-Ukwu dating back 2000 years, Nigeria is home to time honored artistic traditions of bronze casting, woodcarving, grass weaving and pottery. Spend some of the cash you saved on your cheap flight to Nigeria on beautiful handicrafts that showcase local artistic talent.
  • Nigeria’s coast offers visitors ample opportunity to soak up the sunshine that bathes the country between the months of November and March. After your Nigeria flight lands, head to the western side of Lagos to check out Coconut Beach, a sandy spread encircled by coconut plantations, or to Tarwa Bay, which is popular with families for the plethora of water sport activities available.
  • How long is the flight to Nigeria?

    With limited options for non-stop flights from the United States to Nigeria, the travel time is extensive. At the minimum amount, travel time is 13h and 42m, and depending on the point of departure can be a great deal longer. For example, an east coast departure from Logan International Airport in Boston, MA will have a single stop and take 14h and 21 minutes, with a stop in Paris at the Charles DeGaulle Airport.

  • Which cities offer direct flights to Nigeria?

    Delta Airlines and United Airlines are the only carriers offering nonstop or direct flights from the United States to Nigeria. There are other carriers that make the journey to Nigeria from connections elsewhere in the world, and most will land in Nigeria’s largest and busiest airport in Lagos. The Murtala Muhammed International Airport is vast and often confusing, but it is where the longest list of international carriers will arrive. Delta Airlines has five non-stop flights arriving in Nigeria each week and they depart exclusively from Atlanta’s massive Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport (thought to be the largest and busiest in the world). United has five flights from Houston’s International Airport into Lagos every week.

  • What is the best way to travel around Nigeria?

    Traveling around Nigeria is best if done with a hired car and driver due to the low quality of the nation’s infrastructure and roads. It is possible to take a hired motorcycle, but only the most skilled drivers will want to attempt this. Often compared to driving in Cairo, with its tens of millions of motorists on the roads at any time, most travelers avoid this and opt for hired cars or even taking air transport from one location to another as there is a reliable domestic air service out of the Lagos airport.

  • What are some things to do in Nigeria?

    Although some governments are suggesting that visits to Nigeria be avoided, many travelers still head to this African nation for its amazing beaches, hiking, and scenery. There are areas of rainforest just outside of Lagos, hiking in the Plateau area of the country near the region of Jos, as well as hiking at Enugu. Calabar is a historic harbor area with an old city and port, and there is an emerging resort area in the Obudu mountains where hiking and an amazing cable car can be enjoyed at any time of the year. Additionally, beer brewing is a popular activity in Nigeria (there is a Guinness plant in the country), and it can be interesting to sample some of the options available in Lagos.

  • Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Nigeria?

    Non-citizens of the Economic Community of West African States must have a visa to enter the country. These are available at consulates, Nigerian embassies, and high commissions in different areas of the world. However, you must also have a passport valid for at least six months, two recent passport-sized images, and a letter of invitation from a host or company in Nigeria that is accepting immigration responsibility. Proof of sufficient funds is also necessary for entry.

  • What is the climate like in Nigeria?

    Nigeria really only has two seasons: a wet season and a dry season. The wet season lasts from April to October. From November to March the temperatures are high and the sunshine never ceases.

  • When is the best time to fly to Nigeria?

    Nigeria may experience sweltering heat year-round, but this West African country is arguably best to behold in the dry season, making cheap flights to Nigeria from November through March difficult to come by. The United States State Department discourages travel to Nigeria due to heightened violent conflicts of a religious and ethnic nature in the Niger Delta.The nature of these conflicts are not targeted at Americans, but continued risks of kidnapping, robbery and other armed attacks in Nigeria make it more of a destination to avoid than one for recreational travel.

  • What is the best way to travel around Nigeria?

    Taxies are available from the airport to the city, but agree on your rate before your journey to avoid overpaying.The roads in Nigeria are very poorly kept, and as a result the Nigerian government is making strong efforts to privatize the Nigerian Railway Corporation.The most comfortable and efficient way to travel throughout Nigeria and West Africa is by rail and air.

  • Can I find cheaper flights to Nigeria if I am willing to have layovers?

    Yes, flights with layovers are often cheaper than direct flights. Keep an eye out for flight deals to Nigeria on Cheapflights that require 1 or 2 stops for potential cost savings.

  • What is the best airline to fly to Nigeria?

    Based on reviews from Cheapflights users, Turkish Airlines is rated the highest out of the airlines that fly to Nigeria.

  • What is the cheapest airport to fly to in Nigeria?

    Asaba Intl is currently the cheapest airport to fly to in Nigeria. One-way flights to Asaba Intl typically cost $54, while round-trip flights cost around $81.

    A round-trip flight to Nigeria will typically cost around $128, however they can be found for as little as $81.
