Get in[edit]

By plane[edit]

  • 1 Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport (ABV IATA). International flights to Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport are offered by several airlines, notably, Lufthansa, KLM, and British Airways. Many visitors fly through connecting flights from Lagos. Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (Q525030) on Wikidata Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport on Wikipedia

While the industry is being overhauled and aviation safety is being upgraded, only a few local airlines are reliable: AeroContractors, Arik Air, Air Peace and Dana Air. The quasi-government-owned Arik Air has frequent flights from many domestic locations. Air Peace and Dana Air are private airlines but operate quite a few routes into Abuja as well.

From the airport, you are best advised to take the official Green Cab. Board the cab with only people you know. Uber operates here as well. The Abuja light rail system connects the airport with the city center. Bolt (formerly Taxify) also operates extensively within the city and off-rides to and fro the airport. The airport is quite a distance from the main city. There are also private shuttle services offered to customers in the city. So once you get into Abuja through this route, then you can get into Jahi from the Airport by using either the cabs or car transport services like Uber or Bolt.

By bus[edit]

You can get into Jahi by bus from major cities like Lagos, Benin, Kano and Port Harcourt. Reliable services are available to bring you into Jahi, such as ABC Transport (with air-conditioned luxurious bus rides), Ekene Dili Chukwu, Chisco Transport (CTN), Young Shall Grow and God is good motors.

It is advisable to take day trip buses from wherever you are coming from in the country. This is because the interstate roads have most part of them unmaintained and full of potholes. And also the issue of being attacked by robbers by night. If you're unfamiliar with the country, endeavor to take a bus with an escort. Buses allow you to appreciate the terrain, the towns and cities, and the subtle changes in these and culture as you drive towards the capital either from the South or the North.

After getting into Jahi, there are cabs around by which you can get around with.

By train[edit]

Nigeria Railway Corporation has completed an inter-city line between Abuja and Kaduna, where you can connect with the rest of the Nigerian rail system. Trains arrive and depart from 2 Idu Station which is about 15 km west of the city centre. As of 2018, there are four daily departures in each direction. The train service offers three types of fares as Economy, First Class, and Sleeper. The schedules and current fairs can be found on the Nigeria Railway Corporation website. It is a very comfortable mode of traveling.
