Arriving in Lagos

Book your flights to Lagos with Etihad Airways and become entranced with the sights and sounds of Africa’s second fastest growing city.

Plan Your Lagos Holiday

Lagos is one of the largest cities in all of Africa and the Port of Lagos is one of the busiest in Africa as well. This is a city that is quickly becoming a sought after vacation destination with its modern infrastructure and plethora of ocean beaches along the Atlantic. Not far from the 5 star hotels that line the beaches are several entertaining and informative tourist attractions like the Nigerian National Museum and Iga Indungaran.

Like most West African countries, Nigeria experiences a dry summer season, shouldered by very wet seasons, it’s the winter dry season when the weather is at its most pleasant. The peak tourist season to travel to Lagos is between December and March, and it is best to buy your tickets to Lagos early if coming at this time of year. Cheap hotels in Lagos are easy to find from April to July, when the weather is warm, but the rain is heavy. Flight deals to Lagos can be found year round with our Deals section.
