Terminal Information – Arriving

At London-City: There's only one terminal at London-City Airport. The airport is well connected by public transport. You can take the DLR (Docklands Light Railway) trains and transfer onto the underground system. These trains serve the airport every 8-15 minutes. It's also possible to take the bus, with lines 473 and 474 serving the city centre. Taxis to town are fairly reasonable: a trip to Covent Garden will set you back roughly £35*.

At London-Heathrow: Lufthansa flights usually land at Terminal 2 (The Queen's Terminal) while British Airways flights land at Terminal 5. You can take the Heathrow Express or the Piccadilly Line from both terminals. The Heathrow Express is the fastest way to reach the city, with a 15 minute journey time to Paddington Station. It's also the priciest form of public transport, with single tickets starting at £18*.  The Heathrow Connect train is slightly slower, with a half hour journey time, but cheaper with an £8.50* ticket price. The tube is the cheapest way to reach the city: a Zone 1-6 ticket will set you back £5.50*. National Express coaches are available but you should book your ticket in advance. Taxis into the city cost about £55*.
