Lagos is the gateway to Nigeria, home to the biggest international airport in the country. Direct flights from the UK take just under seven hours and there are plenty of non-stop and indirect options available. Here is our must-read guide to finding the right Lagos flights for you.

The speediest way to reach Lagos from the UK is to fly from London. British Airways runs daily flights to Nigeria’s largest city from London Heathrow (LHR), with a journey time of just 6 hours and 25 minutes. Virgin Atlantic also offers direct Lagos flights from Heathrow on a regular basis. One of the cheapest ways to get there is via a Med-View Airline flight between London Gatwick and Lagos. Med-View is a Lagos-based airline which expanded from domestic passenger services in 2012 and now operates flights to 13 destinations out of its base at Lagos Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS).
