International Connections

London is undoubtedly one of the best connected cities on the globe.  The city has four international airport and several others just a train ride away.  International cities served number in the hundreds and most routes are flown by a number of competing airlines.


Everyone in the industry knows of London Heathrow; and London Gatwick and London Stansted airports are also well used for international travel.  London City Airport, adjacent to the location of this year's World Airline Road Race, also hosts a number of international routes including, since September 2009, a business class only BA flight connecting New York and London.


Although Britain is an island London has international connections without the need to fly, sail or swim.  The Channel Tunnel links London from France and the rest of Europe. High speed railway lines provide city centre to city centre travel times to Paris and Brussels to rival those of airlines.
