Abuja Airport’s full name is Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport and officials decided on this name in order to honour the memory of Nigeria’s first president.

This airport has both domestic and international terminals which have a common path. Local airlines such as Arik Air, Overland or Dana Air fly from the Abuja Airport.

Airport Map

The map for the Abuja Airport isn’t available right now. The domestic and the international terminals both share the same runway which can turn out to be confusing and crowded, which is why a second runway is in the plans for a future construction.


There are two different lounges at the Abuja Aiport, one for the domestic terminal and one for the international one where you can relax on comfortable sofas.

Shops, Bars and Restaurants

There are several places where you can eat which are open all hours. If you want to buy a magazine or a book you can also find various shops within both terminals and they are not hard to find.
