Flights to Abuja

Book flights to Abuja

Abuja is situated in the centre of Nigeria, a large country on the west coast of Africa. Unlike other major Nigerian cities on the coast, Abuja has a more central location, making it easily accessible from other parts of the country. Abuja is a planned city, which means it was designed and built from scratch in the 1980s. This is different from most major cities that grow organically over time. The city is known for its wide boulevards, parks and a distinctive landmark called Aso Rock, a 400-meter-tall monolith that rises from the ground. The Presidential Complex is located right next to Aso Rock.
