London has five major airports, although the majority of flights from Paris will arrive at London Heathrow (LHR) or London Gatwick (LGW). London Heathrow is the busiest airport in Europe by traffic and is located 16 miles west of the city. Depending on your airline, you could arrive at any of the airport's four operating terminals.

London Gatwick is located about 30 miles south of the city and has two terminals. From Gatwick, you can get to London by train, bus, taxi, or car. The National Express coach offers direct service from both terminals and travel will take about 37 minutes.
