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.

Interested in Lagos? Consider Kumamoto

Book your flights to Kumamoto with Etihad Airways and prepare to immerse yourself in the storied culture of this picturesque city of manicured gardens and formidable history.

Plan Your Kumamoto Holiday

A visit to Kumamoto is an opportunity to experience many vacations all at once. The chance to gaze into the belly of an active Volcano, the thrill of white water rafting, catching a traditional Kabuki play and the chance to explore ancient ruins all await you in Kumamoto. Every day of your visit here can have a distinctly different feel and will create memories that will last a lifetime.

Peak tourist season is from March to August and the crowds are fairly large so cheap hotels in Kumamoto are very hard to find at this time of year. The peak season is even busier during the festivals devoted to the cherry blossoms which are in full bloom from March to May so book your tickets to Kumamoto very early if travelling in those months. If you don’t mind the crowds and can find reasonable accommodation you should try to come when the cherry blossoms are in full blossom. Flight deals to Kumamoto are available through Etihad’s Deals section.
