Cheap Airline Flights to Faro

The journey time from the airport west along the coast to Lagos is normally less than one hour by car but two to three hours by train or bus.  It is therefore, a good idea to have a hire car waiting for you at the airport, especially as you may need transport between your accommodation and the aerodrome each day.

If driving to Lagos from the UK, crossing by ferry from either Portsmouth or Plymouth to Bilbao or Santander in Spain reduces the driving time to around 12 hours.
