Information about flights from London to Paris

Direct flights from London to Paris are generally short and straightforward. All in all, the journey takes approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that a number of other factors can affect your journey from one bustling capital to the other. For example, you may have to account for your initial journey to the departure airport, or weather conditions on the day of the flight.

As a general rule of thumb, for domestic flights and journeys within Europe, it is recommended you arrive at the airport two hours in advance. Be sure to check the forecasts in advance and also try to account for the rush-hour traffic windows, as car and public transport journeys will definitely be affected by this.

When you arrive in Paris, remember to set your analogue watch ahead by an hour. The time difference between London (British Summer Time, GMT+1) and Paris (Central European Summer Time, GMT+2) may be small, but the last thing you want is to be late for any plans you’ve got scheduled on your holiday!

Here is a tip for you to make it easier to plan your holiday: next time book a hotel or flight + hotel in Paris or book a hotel or flight + hotel in London if you have an early flight, a stepover or multi-city flight. If you book your flight + hotel together you can save up to 40% when compared to booking separately and all that's left for you to do is relax and enjoy your trip!

The best time to fly to Paris

Unsurprisingly, the most popular months to visit the City of Love seem to be May-September. This is likely because the picturesque city comes alive in the sunshine, with events such as Bastille Day, Paris Plages, Fête des Tuileries and The Rock en Seine festival taking place.

Off-peak seasons fall just before and after the Christmas season from late November to early December and January to February. During this period, the demand for flights to Paris will be lower, meaning prices are likely to be cheaper than average.
