Flights between RDU and – now – LHR

Beginning today, American Airline’s direct flights between Raleigh-Durham and London switched from Gatwick to Heathrow – score!  Heathrow is much closer to London than Gatwick, so getting to your hotel to dump your luggage is quicker.  Plus you can get to London from Heathrow on the Tube with your Travelcard (1 day, zones 1-6 from £7) or Heathrow Express (from £15 ow), whereas you have to buy a separate train ticket (Thameslink (from £9 ow) or Gatwick Express (from £17 ow)) coming in from Gatwick.  If you take a bus, it’s cheaper and faster from Heathrow too (from £8 rt v. £12 rt).

“There are just slightly more than a dozen cities in the United States that can claim nonstop service to London Heathrow,” said Jim Carter, American’s Vice President — Eastern Sales Division. “It’s definitely a ‘feather in the cap’ of any area to be able to say it is a gateway to London Heathrow. Heathrow is the preferred London airport, especially for business travelers going to London.”
