Abuja International Airport

Where is Abuja Airport?  

In a region with beautiful rolling terrain, Abuja is set against the backdrop of Aso Rock, a 400-metre monolith left by water erosion.

Nigeria's purpose-built capital city has an excellent road network and modern architecture. As in the rest of the country, however, electric power is erratic.

Abuja International Airport (IATA: ABV, ICAO: DNAA), officially Abuja Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, also referred to as Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, or simply Abuja Airport, is located in 40 kilometres (25 miles) from Abuja, Federal Capital Territory, Nigeria. The airport is named to honour Nigeria's first President, Dr. Nnamdi Azikiwe.

In 2012, Abuja Airport served 6,183,603 passengers.

Abuja Airport is a hub for Arik Air, IRS Airlines and Overland Airways. Other airlines that fly to Abuja Airport include Aero Contractors, Air France, ASKY Airlines, British Airways, Dana Air, EgyptAir, Emirates, Ethiopian Airlines, First Nation Airways, Kenya Airways and Lufthansa.

Cities with flights to Abuja Airport include Addis Ababa, Asaba, Cairo, Dubai, Enugu, Frankfurt, Ibadan, Ilorin, Kano, Lagos, London, Maiduguri, Nairobi, Owerri, Paris, Port Harcourt, Sokoto, Uyo, Warri and Yola.


 Other Items of Interest at Abuja Airport

The Nigerian currency, the Naira, is non-convertible. While USD may easily be exchanged at major hotels, banks and foreign exchange offices, visitors should expect to pay most bills using the local currency. Nigeria is a cash economy, and it is usually necessary to carry sufficient currency to cover the expenses of a planned visit, which makes travellers an attractive target for criminals. Credit cards are rarely accepted beyond a few upscale hotels. Due to credit card fraud in Nigeria and by cohorts in the United States, credit card use should be considered carefully.
