Lagos Airport Review

by web-administrator (February, 2015)

Pros: -
Cons: -

(Guest Review) Very disorganised. Very inefficient. NO A/C although it looks like these are being installed. Can be described as Organised Chaos. The SAA lounge is dismally basic. the actual boarding of the plane was a disaster. they only realised after re-checking half of the passengers bags, that he plane was not at that gate. We ended up walking around the terminal building to get o the plane.

Acceptable (African standard)

by vesper (August, 2013)

Reason for Stay: Other
Where: Landside
Pros: Nice and clean toilets, good security
Cons: no restaurants during the night, no internet

- 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

Never ending construction

by ladytraveller (May, 2012)

Reason for Stay: Connection between flights
Where: Landside and Airside
Pros: slight improvement in the departures terminal
Cons: never -ending construction

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.

by Judy (October, 2010)

Reason for Stay: Connection between flights

My friend arrived @ the Airport in Lagos on his way to South Africa. He was taken to a Hotel where he errand a guy with money to buy a flight ticket this guy disappeared with the money. My friend where beaten into hospital by a gang. This is not the way to be treated in Lagos.

(Contributed by ?) - "I visited Lagos Murtula Mohammed International Airport recently flying in from a regional destination and flying out a couple of days later back to Europe.The airport has improved enormously and is tolerable in itself. However as with the rest of Lagos any travellers primary fears should be towards personal security with Taxi travel to and from the city. Taxi's are a serious problem - and some 80 percent of violect crime perpetrated against foreigners occurs in Taxis. My advice would be to either have a local friend collect you or to ask a Nigerian official to help you find a cab. Once found, make sure you take down the taxi numbers, and number plate and leave with official at airport. Make sure the taxi driver knows you have done this - as then he/she will know they can be caught should they try anything, as carryin continued >>
