When is the best time to fly to Abuja Airport?

Abuja has three main weather patterns during the year, including two seasons, a warm, humid-rainy season and a very dry and hot season. Scattered between these are the North East Trade Winds, which bring dust haze mixed with very dry, cold conditions.

The rainy season runs from April to October. During this period, the days and nights are warm, with temperatures usually around 18-36°C. Although rain falls throughout these months, April is the driest and August and September are the wettest. If you do decide to book flights to Abuja during the rainy season, be prepared for high humidity.

During the dry season, from November to March, temperatures can reach the late 30’s C and the heat can be very uncomfortable at this time of year. By contrast, the nights can drop to 12 degrees. The very hot weather during the dry season deters some tourists; which means that travellers willing to embrace the extreme heat, may be able to get a good deal on a flight to Abuja and accommodation.
