Selected fares from London to New York

Spilling the beans on flights from London to New York

Close your eyes and dream: of glittering Broadway premieres, bargain-hunting in Macy’s, romantic strolls in Central Park, bird’s-eye views from the Empire State, breakfast bagels in Penn Station – in around 8 hours your dreams could become reality, courtesy of a great choice of direct flights from London to New York. British Airways and Virgin Atlantic both cover the 3,500-mile trip from London Heathrow to JFK, while Delta and American Airlines fly the flag for US carriers. BA also offers London-New York flights from Gatwick, and European airlines including Norwegian, Iberia and Finnair operate this same route.

Best time of year for flight bargains?

New York is known as the city that never sleeps, so seasonal lulls are not on its radar. However, thanks to plenty of healthy competition for this popular and lucrative route, cheap flights to New York from London are easily sourced all year round. Booking well ahead naturally helps to secure the best deals. The period between Thanksgiving and New Year is particularly busy with UK-based New Yorkers heading home for the holidays. Dodge the crowds and take advantage of cheaper travel and accommodation during the shoulder months of February and October, when this insomniac city takes a breather.

How do I travel to the airport for my outbound flight?

Whether your departure is from Heathrow or Gatwick, you’ll find plenty of transport possibilities. If you opt to travel under your own steam, there’s a wide choice of on-site and off-site parking suitable for long or short stays. Public transport users are equally well catered for, with non-stop express trains departing central London round the clock. The Heathrow Express takes around 15 minutes from Paddington, while the Gatwick Express from Victoria delivers you to the terminal in 30 minutes. National Express runs comfortable coaches from central London to both airports, as well as a handy direct link between the two.

Getting to New York from the airport

First things first: remember to change your watch and your smartphone as you prepare for landing – New York is 5 hours behind the UK, so don’t forget to take this into account when checking timetables back home. JFK is one of the world’s busiest airports, so it’s used to dealing with high volumes of visitors. The AirTrain links up with the New York subway, offering a quick and convenient way to reach many different parts of the city, with a journey time of around 75 minutes to downtown Manhattan. For door-to-door convenience coupled with a foretaste of authentic New York, a ride in an iconic yellow cab to your Manhattan hotel will set you back a flat fee of roughly USD50.

The city that never sleeps

Don’t expect to get a lot of sleep either – New York is simply too exciting. But whether gasping at priceless artworks in the Metropolitan Museum, splashing the cash on fashionable Fifth Avenue, or hanging out in a downtown diner with a milkshake and a pastrami on rye, you’ll still be living the dream.
