Ibadan 2018: Important information about flights, ground travel, and accommodation.
Flights and airport pickup
All participants for ISOLA 2018, from outside Nigeria, should book direct flight to Murtala Mohammed International Airport (IATA Code: LOS), LAGOS, Nigeria. The LOC will assist participants who will be coming from outside Nigeria with Airport pickup on ARRIVAL date: Monday 09 July, 2018, only.
Two buses stationed at the airport will convey participants from Lagos to Ibadan, which is a distance of 150km. A conference official with a bold banner (ISOLA 2018) will be there at the Arrivals hall to guide participants to the buses.
Morning pickup is at 11:00am (local time), and evening pickup is 5:30pm. A similar arrangement will be available for DEPARTURE DATE of 13 July, 2018. The actual departure time from Ibadan to Lagos will be determined and announced during the conference.
Any participant whose itinerary does not fit into this arrangement will have to make a private arrangement at personal cost. But we strongly encourage attendees to make every effort to fit their arrivals to the two departure times on Monday 9 July. We do not encourage night travel. If your plane is arriving after 5:30pm, please plan to spend the night in Lagos. The LOC can assist with further information on the private logistic arrangement, but it’s imperative that you notify the LOC of your itinerary in advance.
