London Airports for national and International Flights

London boasts several airports. There are the Four main airports of Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton, which have flights to worldwide destinations. There is also London City Airport and London Southend Airport.
London Heathrow Airport

London Heathrow Airport, often referred to as Heathrow, is the third busiest airport in the world, after Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Chicago O'Hare. However, for international passengers alone, Heathrow is the world's busiest. Heathrow is the United Kingdom's busiest and best-connected airport, as well as being Europe's largest.

The airport was named after the hamlet Heath Row, which was demolished to make way for the airport and was located approximately where Terminal 3 now stands. Heathrow now has four passenger terminals (numbered 1 to 4) and a cargo terminal. Permission for a fifth passenger terminal (Terminal 5) was granted in November 2001, and construction is now well under way. It is expected to open in 2008, with construction of all satellite buildings completed in 2011.

Heathrow is situated at the edge of Greater London. It is surrounded by built-up areas to the north (Harlington, and Cranford), to the east (Hounslow and Hatton), and to the south (East Bedfont and Stanwell). To the west the M25 motorway separates the airport from Colnbrook in Berkshire.

Gatwick Airport

Gatwick Airport is London's second largest airport and the second busiest airport in the UK after Heathrow, busiest single runway airport and sixth busiest airport in Europe in terms of passengers per year. It is located in Crawley, West Sussex, 5 km or 3 miles, north of the town centre, and 46 km or 28 miles south of London.

In 2005, the airport handled over 32.6 million passengers, flying to around 200 destinations. Charter airlines are generally not allowed to operate from Heathrow and many use Gatwick instead as their base. Many flights to and from the USA also use Gatwick because of restrictions on transatlantic operations from Heathrow. The airport is a secondary hub for British Airways and Virgin Atlantic.

Stansted Airport

Stansted Airport is a large passenger airport with a single runway and hub for a number of major European low-cost airlines. It is located in the Uttlesford District of the English county of Essex about 30 miles (48 km) north-east of London. The airport is owned and operated by BAA. It is the fourth busiest airport in the UK and third-busiest airport in the London area after Heathrow Airport and Gatwick Airport.

Stansted was constructed by the United States Army in 1942 as a bomber base. By 1944, over 600 aircraft were stationed there. The base played a major role in the Battle of Normandy.

After the war, the base was not needed; it was transferred to the Air Ministry in 1947. The US military returned in 1954 to extend the runway for a possible transfer to NATO but this was never realised and the airport ended up under BAA control in 1966.

Due to the size of Stansted, aircraft can be isolated from the terminal and the usual parking stands. Stansted also has purpose-built facilities for dealing with hijacked planes. The airport is the designated destination for at-risk flights approaching London. On several occasions hijacked planes and planes carrying bomb threats have been diverted to land at Stansted, sometimes from other European countries. These incidents have all ended with no loss of life. The airport frequently practices handling major security alerts in conjunction with Essex Police.

London Luton Airport

London Luton Airport, previously called Luton International Airport, is an airport about 30 miles north of London in the town of Luton, Bedfordshire. It is the fourth largest airport serving the London market after Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted, handling approximately 9 million passengers per year.

A indicator of the importance of the airport to the economy of Luton is that the town has the highest number of taxi cabs per head of population in the United Kingdom. The airport has become even more critical to the future of Luton given the recent closure of the Vauxhall car factory.

London City Airport

London City Airport is a single-runway airport, intended for use by STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) airliners, and principally serving the financial districts of London. It is located on a former Docklands site, in the London Borough of Newham in East London, England, and was developed by the engineering company Mowlem in 1986/87. London City is the fifth airport serving the London area after Heathrow, Gatwick, Stansted and Luton.

London City Airport is small compared to the other 4 London international airports but has proved important for thousands of business travellers from London's Docklands and financial district. Inside the terminal there are 26 check-in desks plus an extra 5 self-service kiosks for BA, Air France and Lufthansa. Unlike other large airports travellers benefit from the quick turnarounds and the short pier, enabling travellers to check-in as little as 15 minutes before takeoff. There are 3 car hire desks, operated by Avis, Europcar and Hertz and chauffeur hire car desk operated by Quay Cars. The terminal has landside and airside restaurants and cafes, and duty free shops airside. The whole terminal is WiFi enabled.

There are nine gates at London City Airport and a further five stands connected via an airside bus. Outside there are two car parks, one for short stay and one for long stay, free valet parking and a new administration building called City Aviation House, which opened in 2004.

London City Airport also has what is believed to be the closest private jet centre to central London. In 2005 the centre was voted by European Business Air News, as the best corporate aviation passenger handling

London Southend Airport

London Southend Airport is a small airport in south east England, in the county of Essex. It mainly operates charter and business flights, and offers maintenance services for the aircraft used for passenger services at larger airports. The airport is actually closer to Rochford than it is to Southend. A frequent rail service runs from Rochford to London (Liverpool Street) and buses and taxis are available outside the existing terminal.

The only regular public air service is a scheduled flight to Jersey on summer Saturdays. On June 7th 2006 a new regular service commenced between Southend and Cologne, however this is not available to the public, being operated by based airline Flightline on behalf of a private business for the transportation of its employees, presently on weekdays only. Aircraft can be chartered from based airlines Flightline, Trans Euro Air and Fly Now Air Charter. 'Southend Handling' can assist companies, groups or individuals in chartering aircraft to or from the airport.

The airport's ambition to restart passenger flights dovetails with Government aims outlined in the White Paper on airport development and the strategic 'Thames Gateway' development. Undoubtedly the airport will have a role to play in supporting the 2012 London Olympics in East London.
