At Heathrow: Flights from New York usually land at terminals 3 and 5. Both have their own train stations, and public buses stop at both terminals. The Heathrow Express train is the fastest mode of transport into the city, and the least expensive is the Piccadilly Line on the Underground.

At Gatwick: The Gatwick Express train leaves from the South terminal. If your flight lands at the North terminal you can use the free inter-terminal shuttle to reach the train station. Coaches, such as easyBus and National Express, pick up at the South terminal too.

At London-City: With only one terminal, it's easy to find public and private transport into the city. The DLR railway connects the airport to the city's underground system. Trains leave the airport every 8-15 minutes. Local buses 473 and 474 also run between the airport and Central London. There's a taxi rank outside: expect to pay around £35* for a taxi into Covent Garden in the city centre.

At Luton: A shuttle bus runs between the airport and Luton Airport Parkway train station. The journey to the station takes about 10 minutes, and trains into the city centre take just over 20 minutes. There's a taxi rank outside the train station. A number of coach companies, including National Express and easyBus, offer pick up at the airport.
