Abuja Airport

Abuja Airport

Abuja Airport, known in full as Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, is located 20 km from the center of Abuja and offers a range of domestic and international flights. The airport is the second busiest airport in Nigeria after Lagos Airport and handles over 3 million travelers every year. As well as a wide range of flights across Africa, the airport handles direct flights from the UAE and long-haul flights as far as London and Paris.

Amenities at Abuja Airport

Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport consists of a single passenger terminal which handles all flights at the airport, so you don’t have to worry about switching between terminals if you are transferring at the airport. However, be advised that the airport is split into a domestic section and the international section, so make sure you are in the right area.

Although the airport is moderately sized and rather busy, there are very few amenities and facilities on offer for travelers so it may be best to bring everything you need to the airport with you. However, there are a couple of food options available on site so you can satisfy your appetite before catching your flight. In addition to this, there are a few airport lounges available offering more luxurious and comfortable surroundings alongside additional amenities such as refreshments and Wi-Fi access.

Abuja Airport Travel Information

If you have arrived in Abuja and have not made travel arrangements already, the best thing to do is to flag down one of the official airport taxis to travel into the city. Official airport taxis are painted green but do not come fitted with meters, so most travelers are advised to agree upon a fare with the taxi driver first before setting off. You will conveniently be able to find taxis just outside of the terminal building.

Most nationals around the globe will need to have a visa in order to enter Nigeria, and this includes UAE and EU nationals. However, select West African nationals will be able to enter Nigeria without needing a visa. In Abuja the weather is hot for most of the year, with average highs of 35 degrees from November to April. However, if you are visiting between May to September you can expect a lot of rainfall as this is the region’s rainy season.
