A flight from Atlanta, Georgia, to London, England, will take you part-way around the world. If you've never been there, a trip to London can bring you face to face with Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, and Big Ben--landmarks you've only see in movies.
Flying Out of Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport (ATL) is the busiest airport in the world. This major transportation hub is about seven miles south of downtown Atlanta. You can get a non-stop flight from Atlanta to London Heathrow Airport on the following airlines: British Airways, Delta, Virgin Atlantic, KLM, Air France, United, Iberia Airlines, and Finnair.
International flights from the Atlanta Airport fly from the Maynard H. Jackson, Jr. International Terminal. Concourses E and F serve the international terminal, and departures are on the second level.
The TSA recommends getting to the airport a minimum of three hours before all international flights. You will need a valid passport to enter England.
Arriving at Heathrow Airport
Of the five major airports in the London area, Heathrow Airport (LHR) is the largest and busiest. It's about 15 miles west of London. Depending on your airline, you'll fly into either terminal 3 or 5. After passing through customs, you'll need to pick up your baggage and secure ground transportation.
Renting a car may not be advisable for Americans. In London, they drive on the left side of the road, and many of the cars are stick-shifts. Public transportation is a better option, and there are lots of choices. Heathrow Express is a quick train ride into London. Or take the Underground--stations are in terminals 4 and 5, and between terminals 2 and 3. Other transportation options include buses, coaches, hotel shuttles, and taxis.
Time and Weather in London
Atlanta, Georgia, is in the Eastern Time Zone. In the winter, London is on Greenwich Mean Time, which changes to British Summer Time in the summer. This is pretty much like our daylight savings time, where clocks are set ahead one hour in spring. London is five hours ahead of Atlanta.
The weather in London is usually mild and often rainy. The hottest month is August, while the coldest is usually January. To prepare for the weather, it's a smart idea to bring a wind-breaker and a small umbrella.
The monetary unit of England is the pound sterling. One pound is worth 100 pence. A pound's worth in U.S. dollars is approximately $1.28. It's smart to take some cash to convert to pounds. You can likely use your credit and debit cards in London if they have a chip and PIN, but to be safe, call your credit card company before you go.
