Getting to and from the airport

Flights departing from London

London is a city that is known for its art, culture, commerce and ancient monuments. It is served by a few airports such as Luton, Stansted and Gatwick. Gatwick is known for being the airport with a single runway that is extremely busy.

Flights from London to Rotterdam take off from London's many airports. If your flight is taking off from London City Airport, you can consider yourself very lucky as this is located within city limits. However, Luton, Stansted and Southend are far away and need adequate travel time to reach. Heathrow and Gatwick are the most popular airports serving London.

Getting to London airport

London Rotterdam flights take off from one of the six airports of London. Once you confirm from which airport your plane is taking off, all you need to do is board a train that takes you directly to one of the six airports. However, if your plane is taking off from London City Airport, just call a cab or hire a taxi. This is located within Central London and your taxi fare will not be a lot. However, try to take trains from central London to reach the other five airports. They are all a fair distance away but Gatwick and Heathrow are connected by high speed trains.
