If you have decided to head across the Atlantic Ocean to London, England, then make sure you book your flight with Orbitz. We offer you the best way to find a cheap fare to London from Toronto.
There are plenty of opportunities to find a cheap flight from Toronto Pearson International Airport, the biggest hub in Canada, to London Heathrow, the world’s second busiest airport. Air Canada and British Airways operate several flights a day all year round.
There are also daily flights to London Gatwick, the city’s second airport, with Air Transat and WestJet. British Airways also offers seasonal flights into Gatwick in the summer.
Most flights from Toronto to London are overnight, taking off in the afternoon or evening and arriving the following morning. Although the flight from Toronto to London only takes around seven hours, the UK is five hours ahead of Toronto, so you will touch down 12 hours after you departed.
There will be in-flight entertainment to enjoy on board your aircraft, but you may also want to pack comfortable clothes for sleeping and an eye mask in your carry-on luggage.
The route your aircraft takes across the Atlantic depends on the weather conditions and the position of the jet stream, a band of fast-moving air that heads west to east at high altitude. Your plane may fly north across Hudson Bay and up as far as the tip of Greenland to take advantage of the winds. Riding the jet stream can make the journey quicker and more fuel efficient, cutting greenhouse gas emissions. Although the winds speed up the journey east, they have the opposite effect heading west. This is why the return leg back to Canada takes an hour longer.
As this is a long-haul flight of more than 3,500 miles you will be flying in a large jet, capable of carrying several hundred passengers. These planes can reach an altitude of 40,000 feet and speeds of up to 700mph.
Toronto Pearson International is located 14 miles from downtown Toronto, and you can get there by train, bus, shuttle or taxi. The airport has thousands of long-stay parking spaces if you are driving.
You will need your passport to get through security and passengers should check in at least two hours before take-off. But once through security there are plenty of restaurants and bars where you can relax, or you can book in to one of the premium lounges, but remember you are likely to be served an in-flight meal on the way to London. You can also indulge in some duty free shopping before your flight, UK duty free allowances are one liter of spirits, 200 cigarettes and a maximum of £390 worth of perfume and souvenirs.
It is easy to get into London from both Heathrow and Gatwick airports. There are trains and coaches, and Heathrow is also on the London Underground system. If you want to hire a car you can do so when you book your flight with Orbitz.
