The airport has improved enormously and is tolerable in itself.
" my first experience with the Lagos airport was in 2007 and renovations had been underway and in 2012 construction is still in place . The airport is dusty and noisy there are noticeable improvements but overall the airport still not up to scratch .No seating landside and airside plenty of seating but construction dust make them unusable. Improved bathroom with visibly expensive fittings but no toilet paper. Making domestic connections is a nightmare you need to get to the another airport so use an airline that offers shuttle services. I would not even attempt to sleep in the airport. "
