Cheap Flights to London Gatwick

London Gatwick Airport (LGW) is one of six airports that service London, the historic capital of the United Kingdom. It is the second busiest airport in the country, and is now seeing upwards of 40 million people fly in and out of its terminals. Having been a commercial airport for over 80 years, this constantly modernising transit facility can offer you all the amenities you need when you’re jetting off somewhere exciting.

 

There are information desks staffed by multi-lingual employees, public telephones, free WiFi for up to 45 minutes, an internet café, postal services, currency exchange counters, a medical centre, playrooms, showers, and ATMs.

For shopaholics, you can tour the large duty-free area within the international terminals, dip into the fashion retailers, pick up gifts at the souvenir shops, or purchase last minute travel accessories and electronics. Then relax with a bite before you fly, or grab something when you land in one of the many restaurants, cafes and bars within the airport.

This is a long-haul flight if you are departing from Australia, and subject to one or two stopovers, so you won’t find any direct routes, but you can find flights with Cathay Pacific, Qantas and Emirates to this airport.
