Flying Out of New York City

Here's what you need to know about flying from the Big Apple to the largest city in England.

You have several options for flying out of New York. The airport you choose will depend on which airline you'd like to take and its available flight times.

John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) is the busiest airport in the NYC area. The airport is southeast of the city in Jamaica, Queens. It's about 12 miles from JFK to Manhattan. Airlines that fly direct from JFK to London Heathrow include: American Airlines, Iberia, British Airways, Aer Lingus, Finnair, Delta, Virgin Atlantic, Air France, and KLM. JFK has eight terminals. Air France flies out of terminal 1; Virgin Atlantic, KLM, and Delta use terminal 4; Aer Lingus uses terminal 5; British Airways and Iberia fly from terminal 7; and Finnair and American use terminal 8.

Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) is in Newark, New Jersey, about 15 miles southwest of Manhattan. You can get a direct flight from Newark to London Heathrow from these airlines: Lufthansa, United, Austrian Airlines, British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia, Delta, Finnair, Virgin Atlantic, and American Airlines. Newark has three terminals. Terminals B and C are used for international flights.

New York's LaGuardia Airport is in Queens, about nine miles from Manhattan. Non-stop flights are currently not available from LaGuardia to Heathrow. If you want to fly out of LaGuardia, you'll need to take a flight with one or more connections.

For international flights, you should get to the airport at least three hours in advance. American citizens need a valid passport with at least one blank page. A tourist visa is not required if your trip is less than 90 days.

Arriving at London Heathrow

Heathrow Airport (LHR) is 14 miles west of London. After passing through customs, you'll want to find ground transportation out of the airport. You can catch the Heathrow Express train, which goes from the airport to Paddington Station. You can hop a ride on the famous London underground--there are stations between terminals 2 and 3, and inside terminals 4 and 5. Other transportation options include buses and coaches, taxis, and hotel buses. Rental car facilities are also available, and you can drive in England with a U.S. license. However, be advised that people in England drive on the left side of the road, which will feel strange for Americans.
