Top airlines for travelling to Nigeria from London
|December 20, 2012||Posted by Vishal under Nigeria Business Visa, Nigeria Visa Application||
Although after obtaining your Nigeria visa, you can fly with the convenience of EgyptAir and KLM between certain Nigerian cities and the UK; the three top airlines for travelling to Nigeria from London on a Nigerian visa include Arik Air, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic Airways.
Nigeria’s largest current airline operator, Arik Air also serves as the national carrier for Sierra Leone. It operates an extensive network of international, regional and domestic flights, to and from several important destinations; operating chiefly from two main hubs located at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja and Murtala Mohammed International Airport in Lagos. Head office of Arik Air is based on the Air Aviation Centre grounds of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport at Ikeja in the Lagos State.
British Airways or BA, as it is commonly known worldwide, is based at Waterside, close to its London Heathrow Airport main hub. The airline is both UK’s national airline as well as its flag carrier. Based on the size of its huge fleet, international destinations and international flights, including those to and from Nigeria for passengers holding a Nigeria visa or Nigerian visa, BA is distinctly UK’s largest airline. While measured by number of passengers carried by the airline, it closely follows easyJet, as the second largest.
Passengers travelling on a Nigeria visa or Nigerian visa, on Lagos-bound BA flights, touch down at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Lagos, 14 miles to the north-west part of the city centre. Immediately upon touchdown, they can jump straight into a taxi at the Lagos airport and head directly for the multitude of shoppers crowding the colourful Lagos Island markets, in the downtown administrative and business hub of the city. For passengers on a Nigeria visa or Nigerian visa, after a long flight from London Heathrow to Murtala Muhammed in Lagos, there is nothing more exciting than to go western-style shopping at the Victoria Island and Ikoyi Island malls. For gastronomes among the Nigeria visa or Nigerian visa holders, particularly those who savour Thai or other Asian delicatessen, nothing beats what those trendy restaurants on the mall have especially on offer for foreign travellers.
Virgin Atlantic Airways Limited, which is operated as Virgin Nigeria or Nigerian Eagle, is a Sir Richard Branson owned British airline, with 51% Virgin Group and 49% Singapore Airlines shares; headquartered at Crawley in West Sussex, close to Gatwick Airport near London. With a management team that is highly experienced in running a superb airline, Nigerian Eagle operates various flights between the UK and several international destinations worldwide. Nonetheless, its Lagos-bound flights are not only a very economical way to travel, but a true lifetime experience, particularly for passengers who are travelling on a Nigeria visa or Nigerian visa.
