What is the Airtel Night Plan?

For just ₦25, you can get 500 MB to use for one night from 12 a.m. to 5 a.m., while ₦200 will get you 1.5 GB on the same conditions.

The code for the Airtel night plan is *312#. By dialling this combination, you can subscribe to Smart Trybe or, if you are already subscribed, access the menu that allows you to choose some of its many benefits.

In the menu, select option number 3 (which is Airtel Night Plans) and then either 1 (for 500 MB) or 2 (for 1.5 GB) to get those megabytes for nighttime web surfing.
