For passengers living outside of London, without reasonable public transport links to the capital, flying first thing in the morning or last thing at night can difficult – especially if you prefer to pack last minute! However, many carriers operate flights from regional airports throughout England, Scotland and Northern Ireland, meaning that London airports are no longer the only available option.
Flight times are still around the seven hour mark, and prices rarely vary from the London fares, with regular flights on a daily basis. While London Heathrow and Gatwick offer the most in terms of pre-flight entertainment and restaurants, flying from an airport closer to home can save you time and money – and give you that extra hour to enjoy the duty-free shopping!
The majority of flights depart from London, with many going out every day, but the bigger airlines use regional airports too, ensuring that any time passengers may spend getting into London, can be saved for adding onto the holiday – or for last-minute packing!
