The Airtel Night Plan is a low-tariff data bundle from Airtel that provides consumers with discounted internet access during the late hours of the night. Airtel introduced the Airtel Night plan exclusively for subscribers of Airtel Smart Trybe.

Available from midnight to 5 a.m. at a cost of 25 NGN for 250 MB, the Airtel Night Plan is the cheapest data plan in Nigeria. 

To enjoy and benefit from the Airtel Night Plan, users must be on the Airtel Smart Trybe, which can be migrated to by dialling *412# and selecting "1" on the pop-up box to accept.

  2. Dial the Airtel Night Plan code *412#. 
  3. Answer the prompt by either inputting "#" before entering 3 in the pop-up screen or directly inputting 3.
  4. The Airtel Night Plan will be enabled.

Previously, this process provided a limited data allocation of 1.25 GB for 125 NGN per night, and there were no SMS confirmations. With the new change, the Airtel night plan is now unlimited, and every subscription will receive an SMS confirmation.
