London Flights

A gold mine of culture and history, London is a favourite destination for those who want to immerse themselves in a place that bears the beauty of something both ancient and modern. This exciting city is one of the more popular spots in the UK and because of this, there are plenty of airlines to choose from, making it very easy to find cheap flights.

Best time to go to London

Peak Season:

Despite the fact that this popular UK hub is always an active tourist spot, its peak season falls between June and September, then again around Christmas time. The spring months are considered the best time to visit as the weather is pleasant, and the parks and countryside are at their most beautiful.

Shoulder Season:

The shoulder seasons in London are April and May, and September and October. Flights to London are typically cheaper during these periods of time as there are fewer tourists. This is also a great time to travel to the city because there are plenty of sporting events and indoor entertainments to be had.

Off Season:

Experience the winter wonderland of London during the off season, and enjoy quiet streets and cheap rates. The off season falls between November and March, except for a couple of weeks over Christmas. It is a fantastic time to savor all London has to offer without the huge crowds and inflated prices.

    We were delayed getting out to f London due to the storm, which led to us missing our connecting flight. Staff tried everything to help us but in the end we were forced to spend a night in Madrid and get a new connection the next day. Staff really did try everything to help us.

    Air Malta has calm and friendly crew, and the flights were on time. No siily rules with them.

    My case was case or rough handling?

    Great work for the pilots and team who managed to land in difficult conditions

    Jan 12, 2020

    All in all a great 4 flights. But it is a shame that other passengers on all flights seem to have lost there manners, when it come to meal time... would be nice if people respected that while eating and while food try is on the table, reclining your chair can, spill drinks and make eating (in an even more confined space) unpleasant and frustrating. This happened on all 4 of my flights.

    Seats are so comfortable that I could sleep from takeoff to landing. Premium economy is worth it

    Jan 7, 2020

    Good experience, however the space for a business seat is exactly the same as economy, just no one in the middle seat, so questionable value when you 6’3”

    Awesome flight thanks BA
