Nigeria has reopened its borders to commercial flights to Lagos (LOS) and Abuja (ABV).
Travelers must complete the online pre-boarding “Health Declaration Form" at the Nigeria International Travel Portal. Travelers must have a negative COVID-19 PCR test issued within 120 hours of their departure to Nigeria, and have uploaded their PCR test certificate to the online Travel Portal.
Travelers must also carry proof of the test and result when they travel. Only a COVID-19 PCR test is acceptable to the Nigerian authorities.
Before travel, passengers must book and pay for another PCR test for day 7 of their arrival in Nigeria at the Nigeria International Travel Portal–evidence of the booking will be required on arrival. On arrival all passengers will be screened by Port Health Officials and be required to provide full contact details, including their address in Nigeria.
All new arrivals are expected to self-isolate at one location in the city of their arrival until the result of their second PCR test (which should be taken on day 7 of arrival) is known. If the second test is negative, individuals can exit self-isolation from day 8 onwards. Anyone that has developed symptoms of coronavirus during their travel, or if the later tests is positive will be managed according to national guidelines for COVID-19 treatment. This may require quarantine at a government-monitored treatment center.

Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "WiFi was not working"
Cons: "Bigger seats"
Pros: "Once we took off everything was good"
Cons: "We boarded and pushed off from the gate on time. Then the plane was forced back to the gate because of some mistake the ground crew made when loading the jet. This caused an hour plus delay getting to SFO"
Cons: "Delayed 2+ hours"
Pros: "It was fine. It was a short flight, so I didn't get food, or use any of the entertainment or anything like that. It was a little cramped though, but, like I said it was a short flight, so that was fine."
Cons: "I'm not sure the stewardess is really a morning person. She wasn't rude or anything, but she wasn't nice either. :)"
Cons: "Flight late"
Pros: "Staff was super friendly and very helpful. They made boarding and the rest of the trip a wonderful experience."
Cons: "The small baby in my row had a hard time adjusting and cried a lot. Can small kids and their parents be seated in a separate area near the east of the plane where they're crying won't be so disruptive?"
Cons: "I wasn’t able to take the flight due to illness. Called Just Fly and airline for help - was on hold for hours. Both refused to help me. I am now out of pocket over $700. Appalling customer service by both airline and agent. Planning to report to the Better Business Bureau and travel authorities."
Pros: "Plane size"
Cons: "Pilot driving way to fast"
Pros: "Can’t think of a thing on this flight."
Cons: "Delay after delay. Took way too long for de-icing. The storage compartmemt door got stuck and I could not get my bag out. The flight attendant blamed the issue on my bag. She claimed it was too big. It was not. I have carried the bag on several flights with similar planes, the gate agent slowed it on the plane as many have, and I had no issue opening and closing other compartment as I tried a couple after maintenance retrieved my bag."
Cons: "Commuter flight need internet access. Please make it happen."
Pros: "On time and efficient boarding"
Cons: "Really old plane, was freezing during the whole flight."
Pros: "Same as my previous flight, the crew was outstanding. Had to avoid a rain storm and no turbulence. The stewardess was great! Everything went well!"
Cons: "Again same as above, comfort was a major hindrance. Hard to get comfortable. Wish the airlines could make seating arrangements a little larger!! Otherwise the experience was great!"
Pros: "Flight sucked. Sorry but we're stranded and not there yet. Witch has happened with every flight this year"
Pros: "Speed of flight"
Cons: "2-3 hour delays. No other flights out as alternatives. Freezing on flight. Felt stranded at the airport. No food for a 6 hour flight!"
Pros: "Funny flight attendant, easy boarding"
Cons: "No snack or real food on a 5.5 hour flight? Not cool! I get cutbacks but that's a long flight over mealtime. My headphone jack didn't work well so I had to hold it in place the entire time so it wouldn't be fuzzy noise."
Pros: "Crew was attentive, friendly. Captain kept us infirmed"
Pros: "On time."
Cons: "Chicago airport gate is so far away from other united flights I can't believe they don't provide a shuttle to it."
Cons: "The gate in Newark was a dump and the boarding process was chaotic"
Pros: "Polite crew"
Pros: "I went a different route back to Denver I drove in a vehicle do the circumstances of a friend moving back to Colorado from Michigan. So I called ahead of time and let United Airlines know to go ahead and give my seat to anybody"

Cons: "No complaints."
Pros: "The crew was very nice as we got on."
Cons: "As usually United over booked and even though I brought my ticket in advance I some how did not have a seat assigned to me when I checked in. Most of the plane had boarded before I had a ticket in my hand. The agent was rude as she could be because I didn't understand how that's possible for me not to have a seat. I think that it's absolutely ridiculous that it's even possible to over sale a plane since there's obviously only a certain number of seats. I think it's ridiculous that people have to offer up their seat and take another flight, I chose a flight time because that's when I wanted to leave and get to where I was going for a reason. No other industry is allowed to treat their customers this way so why does the airline industry do it? Also there's no tv or movies for us to watch while in a 4 hour flight."
Cons: "it got cancelled and di not have"
Pros: "The flight went so smooth. And it seemed like we got to LAX super quick."
Cons: "Having to depart from another airport"
Pros: "I usually fly spirit"
Pros: "Boarding was organized and timely."
Cons: "One of the flight attendants was patronizing."
Cons: "Taxied on the tarmac in Chicago for almost as long as we were in the air from South Bend. Arrived too early and there was no gate. By the time we finally deplaned, my next flight was already boarding."
Pros: "Fast. On time. Great service"
Pros: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."
Cons: "You can't have a 3 hour flight and. It serve dinner. Yes flight began at 8pm and lasted until 11:15pm. But most all Of us first class passengers came from connecting flights. My husbands and mine was another 2 hour flight with no food. Total missed opportunity on uniteds part."

Pros: "On time and easy"
Pros: "I did have a nice trip!"
Pros: "Getting home finally"
Cons: "Miscommunication with customer service regarding stand by flights, representatives were extremely rude, spent 7 hrs at airport during departure and 7 at airport during arrival, constant gate changes and that's just to say the least"
Pros: "Easy boarding (almost last to board) Decent enough meals. Hit and miss. Excellent breakfast, terrible sandwich, nice main meal. Crew were pretty helpful and pleasant. Comfortable. Got lucky, with 1 full spare seat. Seats seemed roomier anyway, standard economy, possibly due thinner seats (no screens)"
Cons: "Streaming on free wifi of free movies wasn't working on my PC. Tried all their tips and options. This is a big drawback with letting customers use their own devices. Can get complicated. Surprised that Adobe Flash + DRM software is required. They're supposed to be downloadable from the inflight system, but that wasn't working. Crew don't have expertise to deal with this (wasn't expecting them to). Movie selection looked decent enough."
Pros: "That the flight came in to London 30 mins sooner than its scheduled time."
Cons: "Terrible behavior by the crew. It felt truly humiliating to be spoken to condescendingly by them and treated very badly."
Pros: "Economy plus was worth the extra $25."
Pros: "It was fast"
Cons: "The last seats were really uncomfortable"
Cons: "The aircraft was extremely small. Being 6'4" it's a challenge to navigate to and from your seat. I was pleasantly surprised that I could fit in the seat."
Pros: "Wheels up to wheels down took under 20 minutes."
Cons: "I'm 6'4" and if I would've had to sit on that plane much longer I would've been quite sore. Seats are small, space is exceedingly limited. But, it was a regional jet, so this was to be expected. Nonetheless, other airlines' regional jets haven't been quite so cramped."
Pros: "Good crew."
Cons: "No comfort. Should have picked my seat."
