On Friday (May 31, 2024), British Airways announced the opening of their completely refurbished lounge at Lagos airport.  Following a six month renovation, the luxurious new 360 square-meter space features various zones to cater to different customers’ needs.  There is a self-service dining area with a wide selection of freshly made dishes, with menus featuring a range of Nigerian Classics and British inspired dishes, which will change on a regular basis.  Guests can also take a seat at the new bar, where a bartender will serve cocktails, wine and soft drinks.  Customers traveling in First Class will also be offered Champagne and canapes.    


In Friday’s announcement, British Airways’ Chief Customer Officer, Calum Laming, said,


“We’re focused on investing in the entire customer journey, not just on board.  For many of our customers, lounges are an important part of their experience, and the re-design of our Lagos lounge is a key part of our transformation strategy across our lounges around the world.  We’re delighted to open our doors to this stunning lounge in Lagos and we’re confident customers will enjoy spending time in this cleverly created space.”

Commemorating British Airways’ strong ties with Nigeria, art from local artists will be displayed across the new lounge, thanks to a partnership with Akoje Gallery, founded by Maro Itoje and Khalil Akar.  Akoje Gallery will curate a new in-lounge exhibition showcasing guest artists.  The first collection of works is themed ‘New Beginnings’ marking the refreshed lounge opening, and the selected guest artists will center the works around each chosen theme.  The first three guest artists include Olawunmi Banjo, who has displayed two paintings titled The Wait I and II,  Qozeem Abdul Rahmanm who presents a large painting titled The Guardian, and Steve Ekpenisi, who has displayed a large metal sculpture titled Ulaga.


Speaking on the art collaboration at BA’s Lagos lounge, Akoje Gallery’s Co-founder, Khalil Akar, said,


“We are honoured to partner with British Airways and give local Nigerian artists the chance to showcase their talents in the brand-new Lagos lounge.  We hope British Airways passengers enjoy the immersion in Nigerian culture and the artists’ contribution to their local art community.”
