EgyptAir Flights from Lagos to Dubai
EgyptAir operates daily flights from Lagos to Dubai via Cairo. The total travel time of this journey is longer than if you were to book the direct, nonstop flight with Emirates Airlines.
However, we often find the EgyptAir flights via Cairo are cheaper than the direct flights with Emirates. The direct flights from Lagos to Dubai are popular with business travellers who want to minimise the total travel time. Also, they are less sensitive to price, so the Emirates flights are often more expensive than other airlines which have longer journey times due to layovers.

EgyptAir flight from Lagos to Cairo of 5 hours 45 minutes

If you have the extra time, it would generally be cheaper to book this kind of journey as the direct flights tend to be more expensive.
