Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. You will have access to two of Nigeria’s busiest international airports, Murtala Muhammed International Airport (LOS), Lagos, and Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport (ABV), Abuja, from these international gateways. Most US travelers choose to fly out of JFK and ATL since they offer direct flights to Nigeria from the USA.
