Nigerians love to travel. We are all over the world, in almost every town/country, which is why one out of ever four Black person is a Nigerian. One of the primary reasons most Nigerians travel is for business, and one mode of transportation used within and outside the country is air.
So, here are the top 10 most travelled routes by Nigerians, both at home and abroad:
International flight routes
- Lagos to Accra
- Lagos to Dubai
- Lagos to New York
- Lagos to London
- Lagos/Abuja to Johannesburg
Domestic flight routes
- Lagos to Abuja
- Abuja to Benin
- Abuja to Asaba
- Calabar to Lagos/Abuja
- Kaduna to Abuja
Based on flight patterns, one can surmise that Nigerians travel mainly to Ghana and South Africa among African Nations. Other African countries in the running for most booked routes are Kenya, Rwanda and Libya (Libya often as an illegal immigration route to Europe).
Apart from Dubai in Middle East Asia, more Nigerians tend to go to America and Europe. Very few Nigerians are willing to travel to non-English speaking countries like China, South Korea, Bangladesh, etc.
While within Nigeria, the states with active flight schedules are Lagos, Abuja, Calabar, Asaba, Warri, Uyo, Port Harcourt, Enugu, Jos, Kaduna, Kano, Maiduguri, Yola andOwerri.
Why is this information relevant?
If you are planning a trip to a destination not listed above, it might be good to consider other forms of transportation to get there. If you must fly, you might not always get a straight flight to specific destinations. An example is the Cross Rivers National Park, which after flying to Calabar, will require getting there by road.______________________________________________ Follow us on Twitter at @TheWailersNG Copyright 2018 THEWAILERSNG.
