Travelling to and from the airports

Flights from London

Epicenter of arts, culture, shopping and dining, London offers visitors such an extraordinary amount to do that it is one of the most popular cities to visit on earth. Millions of visitors pass through the city's five main airports, Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and London City, each year. The largest, Heathrow, handles flights from about 80 airlines to around 185 destinations worldwide. Gatwick is second busiest and has the capacity to handle upwards of 41 million passengers annually. Luton and Stansted airports mainly handle no-frills flights, such as cheap flights from London to Bucharest and other European destinations. London City is the smallest, located in the city center.

Travel to London airport

Flights to Bucharest from London may leave from one of the city's five main airports, Heathrow (west), Gatwick (south), Stansted (northeast), Luton (northwest) or London City (city center). All of the airports can be easily accessed by public transport. For Heathrow, you can take the Heathrow Express from Paddington Station or the Piccadilly Line from the city center. Gatwick can be reached on the Gatwick Express or Thameslink train from London Victoria train station. A direct train from Liverpool Street station runs to Stansted. Luton is served by a train from St Pancras to Luton Airport Parkway, where a shuttle bus runs to the airport. London City is central on the DLR line.

Arriving in Bucharest

Once dubbed the Paris of the East because of its majestic architecture and elegant Belle Époque villas, Bucharest has a rich history and there are a host of sights and attractions to discover. You can get your bearings in the Old Town, where a maze of cobblestone streets and medieval and orthodox churches can be explored as well as Vlad the Impaler's bust. You can also visit the vast Palace of Parliament and the glorious Romanian Athenaeum, the city's main concert venue. Evidence of Romania's communist past can be seen at the old Communist Party headquarters. Lunch or dinner could be traditional Romanian cooking followed by cabaret or a stroll through Bucharest's sweeping Ci?migiu Park.

Travelling to the city centre

Low cost flights to Bucharest arrive into Bucharest Henri Coanda International Airport, which is about ten miles from the city center and accessed by the National Road DN 1. There are two bus lines that run to the city center, the 780 Express line runs to Gara de Nord railway station and the 783 Express line connects to the city center, both leave from in front of the terminal building. Alternatively, you can take the Henri Coanda Express train to Bucharest North Railway Station (the CFR Airport Stop is reached by a shuttle bus from the arrivals terminal).
