Lagos MMA2 LOS AIRPORT OVERVIEW

Lagos Murtala Muhammed Airport Terminal LOS - operated by Bi-Coutney Aviation Services limited - serves the Nigerian State of Lagos and its capital city.  In August 2017 MMA2 won  'WorldState Airport of the Year' awad.
The Airport is located in the city of Ikeja, 14 miles northwest of the city of Lagos, State of Lagos, and is Nigeria's largest airport, accessible from Lagos by a highway (driving time 30 minutes).. 
With 15.2 million passengers in 2016, and two long runways, Murtala Muhammed International Airport is hub for Air Nigeria & Arik Air, and is served by many international airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.

The passenger service charge is about  N2,500.

- The on-Airport Courtney Hotel opposite the Airport is presently under construction.
- The Sheraton Lagos Hotel, 4km or 2.5 miles from the Airport, offers conference & business facilities for up to 350 persons  (tel: (01) 280 0100; its site at www.sheratonlagos.com opens an external website in a new tab.

Murtala Muhammed Airport has two passenger terminals in close proximity - operated by different entities: 

- The MMA1*  is the Domestic Terminal (in much need of upgrades) - operated by the Government (see: http://www.faannigeria.org/index.php/airports/international-airports/lagos-mma1).
- The MMA2** terminal is the International Terminal, operated by private enterprise 'Bi-Courtney' (see: http://www.mma2.com.ng/). It is currently under construction and expected to be completed by year-end 2017. 

NOTE:  It is assumed that the two terminals outlined above, have been merged into the new Terminal:
 -  In April 2017 it was announced that the the new passenger terminal under construction is to be completed towards year-end 2017.  By June 2017 the 'Daily Trusts Newspaper' reported from the international wing of the Airport that the new Terminal - with a capacity of handling up to 30 million passengers annually - is 'almost ready for hand-over to the government'.  Upon year-end completion, when the new Terminal opens, passenger facilitation will become easier and the terminal will be able to double its passenger capacity.
 - Reconstruction work on the part of road linking the Airport and Oshodi in Lagos is to start September 2017.
