London Heathrow Airport
LHR Airports Limited
London Heathrow Airport is one of the busiest and best-known airports in the UK. Situated around 15 miles from central London, its position to the west of the city makes it ideal for getting around England’s capital, as well as many of the Home Counties and beyond.
Given its accessible location and facilities, London Heathrow is the perfect airport to begin a journey. On London’s underground Tube system and easy to reach from both the M4 and M25, we fly to both Aberdeen and Edinburgh from Heathrow, strengthening regional air links between the south of England and Scotland.
With far less traffic in the air than on the ground, once you arrive at Heathrow you’ll need to do no more than browse, shop and relax. So whether your journey is down to business, pleasure, or a mixture of both, you’ll get off to the best possible start at London Heathrow Airport.
