General Information

London's five airports combine to serve more destinations and traffic than any other city in the world. Heathrow is the world's busiest airport, Gatwick serves the most routes.

Fortunately all this traffic does help reduce prices; Londoners benefit from the cheapest fares in Europe. However, while we get good deals out of here, foreigners often pay big bucks to reach the capital of cool. Fellow Europeans, South Americans and some Asians pay premiums.

North America & Australasia

Both North Americans and Australasians benefit from good value long-haul deals. The Transatlantic routes, dominated by London ~ New York, are the busiest and best value in the world. UK, US, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand airlines all fly to London daily from all major cities.

From the US you are best off getting a good deal on a scheduled flight. Try Apex or Super Apex (Winter only) for the best discounts. You pay 2-3 weeks in advance and there are other restrictions, but if you plan ahead you should bag a return flight for around four hundred dollars. Check your local travel agents for more information.

Packages & Organised Tours

The major airlines including British Airways offer deals from mini-breaks to more extensive holidays in the shape of package deals and organised tours. They can be very competitive, particularly for families. However, you do lose out on that independent touch.
