Lagos Airport Guide
The airport has improved enormously and is tolerable in itself.
August 2013 - airport staff and policemen are quite helpful and friendly (during night - this doesn't apply during the daytime due to heavy bunches of people trying to get into the airport) - the only airport restaurant closes at 10 pm - snack machines do not work (just take money and do not dispense anything) - no wifi - the only internet cafe is extremely overpriced and is good just to print completely necessary documents if needed
