When you depart from Scotland on your Edinburgh to London flight, you will make use of the Edinburgh Airport (EDI), also known as Turnhouse Airport. To get to the airport with public transportation, you can catch the Airlink 100 bus from any central point in the city or catch a train from any main station in Edinburgh, leading you directly to the airport. Taxis are another good option, as the airport is not based far from central Edinburgh. When you arrive in London, you will have a variety of airports to choose from. Your three primary airport choices will be Stansted (STN), Gatwick (LGW) and Luton Airport (LTN), as these have a lot of flights available on a regular basis. Gatwick is close in terms of distance, so perhaps factor your ground travel time into your schedule and book a flight that takes you to a more convenient London-based airport. From Gatwick, there is the Gatwick Express train, which will take you directly into London via Victoria Station. Stansted Airport also has an express train to head straight to the city.

In London, you will primarily choose from Gatwick, Stansted or Luton. If you arrive at Gatwick you will find a premier airport that is one of the biggest and busiest in London, with everything you could possibly need for a comfortable landing. Stansted is much smaller yet still offers great facilities, lounges and shopping. It is based farther away from London than all the other London-serving airports, so you will need to accommodate extra ground travel. Luton Airport has some great lounges, restaurants and shops to enjoy upon your arrival and is also a fair distance out of the London region, making it necessary to travel longer to reach your destination.


Arriving at any London airport after your one-way flight from Edinburgh to London will make for easy ground travel to surrounding cities. This way, no matter what area in the UK your final destination is, you can reach it through the bus or train service that this dynamic country has to offer.

If you wish to enjoy the inland areas, such as the university city of Oxford or the bustling Sussex region, you will be close enough to reach them with your choice of car hire, bus or train travel.
