Cheap Flights to Murtala Muhammed

Murtala Muhammed overview

Named after the country’s former military head of state, Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS) is located 22km (14 miles) north-west of the city of Lagos, Nigeria. The airport comprises an international terminal and a domestic terminal, separated by a distance of 1km (0.6 miles); the slightly newer International terminal was modelled after Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport.

Although fairly outdated and weathered, improvements have been made throughout the airport over recent years. All amenities have been restored and previously faulty facilities, including air conditioning and luggage belts, have been repaired. There are plans to expand the arrivals and departures halls in order to cope with the ever-increasing number of passengers visiting the airport each year.

Murtala Muhammed International is on its way to becoming a more efficient airport for its visitors. It can be quite chaotic at times; however, the staff are generally friendly and helpful and the facilities are clean. Be cautious during your stay, though, as pickpockets are rife both at Murtala Muhammed International and in Lagos.
