Pickups at LOS

How pickup requests work

It's easy to receive trip requests from riders leaving the airport. However, these trips work a little differently than other requests. To receive a trip request at Murtala Muhammed Airport [LOS] (International and Domestic), you must wait in the car park you want to pick riders up from. You will automatically be added to the FIFO (First In First Out) queue for requests.

Airport surcharges and waiting area

Riders fees at LOS

Uber driver-partners may wait for ride requests at designated car parks at the airport. An automatic N400 will be added to your riders fare if you have a trip that starts from the airport area. Keep in mind that:

  • The lot is "first in, first out"; upon entering the staging line, you will be placed in line for the next trip request
  • There is only space for 100 vehicles at the airport waiting area. Should you arrive at the parking lot and see that it is full, we recommend leaving the airport to complete other trips
  • If you leave the staging lot or turn off your app, you will be placed at the back of the line

Car Parks

Uber driver-partners may wait for ride requests at the any of the available car parks. You will not receive an airport request outside of this lot.

Keep in mind:

  • The car park is "first in, first out"; upon entering the car park, you will be placed in line for the next trip request
  • If you do not receive a trip request in 30 minutes, we suggest to rather leave the airport area
  • If you leave the car park or turn off your app, you will be placed at the back of the queue
  • The parking fee for all three airports terminals is N400 for the first hour
  • You will be reimbursed the N400 parking fee if you pick a rider up from the airport. If you do not pick up a rider, or if you incur parking fees in excess of N400, you will not be reimbursed.
