Flights from London to Chicago

Up to 10 flights a day are operated on the popular flight route between London (LON) and Chicago (CHI) on the south-west coast of the USA. Several airlines offer scheduled services between the two cities and these include United, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. A direct flight will cover the distance of 3963 miles in a flight time of 8 hours 48 minutes. However, the return journey is always slightly shorter, even taking up to an hour less for a direct connection. Journeys with a stopover will take longer: anything from 12 to 35 hours.


Cheap flight from London to Chicago

A low cost flight from the UK capital to Chicago is easy to find with a little planning. If purchased 5 months ahead of the date of travel, an air ticket can cost less than £500. Last minute deals are, however, also widely available and with a stopover, tickets can even cost less than a non-stop flight that has been purchased well in advance.


Chicago Airport

There are two major international airports in Chicago: O'Hare International Airport and Chicago Midway International Airport. O'Hare is the second busiest airport worldwide and most flights from London will land here. Other smaller airports also exist in and around the Chicago area. These are, however, mainly used for domestic air traffic. Getting from the destination airport Chicago O'Hare (ORD) to downtown Chicago is convenient using the subway trains or commuter trains which are connected to the terminals via a shuttle bus. Taxis are also widely available at the airport. Alternatively, passengers can stay at one of the many airport hotels.
