1. Plan Your Flight
The first step in planning your trip to London for the NFL International Series is to find a flight to London! London has two major airports you could fly into: Heathrow and Gatwick.
Heathrow is the larger of the two airports and is the busiest airport in Europe by passenger traffic, the third bussiest in the world and handles more international passengers than any other airport in the world. It's about 14 miles from the center of London and it has a direct line to the Tube, or London Underground.
Gatwick is much smaller than Heathrow, but is still the second bussiest airport in the United Kingdom. With that being said, Gatwick offers more points-to-points flights compared to Heathrow, so if you're trying to find a direct flight from your hometown, odds are you'll be flying into Gatwick. It's located about 30 minutes from center city and also has a direct line to the Tube as well.
With online tools such as Flight Finder and KAYAK, it's very easy to find cheap flights on reputable airlines to your destination. And be sure to start a frequent flyer account once you book your trip so you can begin earning rewards on your travel to London!
