Selected airports and flight times

The list of airports in England (and throughout Great Britain) is long. Therefore, only a few of the touristically important ones are mentioned here. There are nine airports in the vicinity of the British capital alone London: the huge Heathrow Airport (IATA code LHR; flight time around 1.5 hours), Gatwick Airport (LGW) and London Stansted (STN) If you have a choice between these three airports, you should also consider their location and distance from central London. In some cases this journey into the city takes about as long as the flight from Germany to England… The shortest journey by public transport is from Heathrow, which is around 20 kilometers to the west, followed by Gatwick 40 kilometers to the south and Stansted 55 kilometers to the northeast.

The metropolis also has a heavily frequented airport that is served by Germany Birmingham (BHX; flight time approximately 1 hour 40 minutes), which is located in the West Midlands metropolitan area. About 100 kilometers north of it is the Manchester Airport (MAN; also about 1 hour 40 minutes), near the border with Wales.

If you want to fly all the way to the north of England, for example to visit the Lake District, in some cases you can Newcastle Select Airport (NCL). However, there are only a few flight connections to Germany. Scotland holidaymakers, on the other hand, are usually better advised with a flight duration of two hours directly to Glasgow (GLA) or Edinburgh. The main airport in Wales is Cardiff Airport (IATA code CWL).
