UK Airport Information
Flying short haul to various destinations in Europe is easy and cheap and budget airline companies like Ryanair, Easyjet, Flybe and Monarch have made travelling overseas accessible to many more people over the last 10 years.
All the airports we have listed offer flights to Europe BUT the main long haul flights tend to be dominated by the big three airports . . . .London Heathrow, London Gatwick & Manchester. Visit our guide to UK flights for more detailed information on each airport and which destinations they fly to.
The one exception to the rule is the USA and you can fly to States from 9 different UK Airports (see below) BUT many smaller Airports are starting to open up to longer haul flights. For example you can now fly direct to Dubai from Birmingham, Newcastle and Glasgow!
