What is a domestic flight?

A domestic flight is also known as an internal flight and are flights that leave and land in the same country. For example, flying from Lagos (LOS) and landing at another destination in Nigeria, for instance, Kano (KAN). These flights are often cheaper than international flights, because of their shorter travel time and costs. Top Tip: If you plan on flying this route, check out our Lagos to Kano flight guide for more information. 

Have a go at searching on Alternative Airlines to see what affordable domestic flights we offer, or it may be that you want to visit lots of different cities in one country and may want to use our multi-city flight planner. You may also like to fly from one city to another without any stopovers and may want to check out our direct flight guide.
