Flying from London (LON) to Aberdeen (ABZ) has become increasingly popular in recent years. The distance between the two cities comprises 530 miles by road and the journey would normally take about 9 hours and 30 minutes by car. With a flight time of only 1 hour and 30 minutes, flying is therefore a convenient alternative to travel by road or rail.
A cheap flight to Aberdeen from London is almost always available even if booked last minute. Obviously, buying an air ticket well in advance and avoiding peak times will guarantee the cheapest deal.
The airport of arrival is always Aberdeen airport, which is located just less than 6 miles from the city centre. Local buses and coach services will transport passengers from the airport to central Aberdeen and the train station. Rental cars and taxis are also available at the terminal.
Between 11 and 23 non stop flights are operated every day by a number of scheduled and low cost carriers, for example British Airways, Easyjet and Flybe. The airport of departure in London is either London-Luton, London-Gatwick, or London-Heathrow, and the exact duration of the journey will vary depending on the departure airport chosen. Business travellers might opt for Heathrow, whereas those planning a city break may prefer to book an air ticket with a no frills airline departing from Gatwick Airport or Luton.
