Getting to and from the airport

Flights departing from London

London is one of the most important financial centres of the world and, consequently, millions of passengers travel to and from this city. This international city is served by many airports such as Luton, Stansted, Heathrow and others. Of these airports, Heathrow Airport is the best recognised and also the busiest airport in London.

Flights from London to Bilbao may take off from any of the six airports that serve London. Gatwick is the second most popular airport in London and is known for its busy single runway, which can handle almost one flight every second. Gatwick Airport is far away from the city but a high-speed train connects it with central London.

Getting to London airport

London to Bilbao flights may take off from either Heathrow or Gatwick. In this case, make sure that you take a train from one of the stations in central London. Stansted, Southend and Luton airports are also connected to the city of London by train. Make sure that you start well ahead of time as all the airports bar Heathrow are far from the city. However, if your plane is taking off from London City Airport you do not have to worry much, as it is located well within the city and is easily reached by taxi or bus.

Arriving to Bilbao

Bilbao is a centre of art and culture located in the autonomous community of the Basque Country in Spain. It's known for its unique architecture, way of life and Basque culture. Begin your day at the Guggenheim Museum, which represents the modern face of Bilbao. Head toward Old Town, which has a rich collection of buildings and monuments dating back to the medieval age. Being a pedestrian zone, this area is best explored at a leisurely pace. Visit one of the many parks in the city, such as Doña Casilda Iturrizar Park, which is known for its English-style garden. Do not forget to try Basque cuisine at one of the restaurants that dot the city.

How to get to the city centre

Flights to Bilbao from London land at Bilbao Airport, which is located in Luiu. This airport is a distance of 9 kilometres from Bilbao city centre. The cheapest and easiest way to get to the city is by getting on board a Terminus; these buses take just 15 minutes to reach the city centre and are very affordable. Another option is to rent a car outside the airport and get to the city centre all by yourself. If that does not impress you much, do what travellers have always done and just take a taxi.
