If you fancy hitting the bright lights of London for a city break, or even just to take in a football match, then you are probably wondering where you can snag the cheapest flights from. People based in Cork have a number of choices when it comes to flying to England's capital, and in this blog, we are going to run you down through your choices for cheap flights to London from Cork.
Cork Airport is a growing airport on the south coast of Ireland, serving millions of passengers each and every year. London is easily the best served city from the airport, with flights departing daily to London Gatwick, London Heathrow and London Stanstead. The two providers that fly from Cork to London are Aer Lingus and Ryanair, so lets check out what they offer to passengers.
Aer Lingus, Ireland's flag carrier, run a service to both London Gatwick and London Heathrow, and you can check out their full timetables and fares on their site at www.aerlingus.com. Prices generally fluctuate, but Aer Lingus will get you to London for around 30 Euro each way depending on when you want to travel. If you are looking to catch a connecting flight, then Aer Lingus is your best bet, as they will book you all the way through to your final destination.
Alternatively, Ryanair fly to both London Gatwick and London Stanstead from Cork, and as you would expect, their fares are a bit cheaper, so check them out for yourself at www.ryanair.com. Unfortunately, Ryanair are a strictly "point to point" airline, meaning if you are catching a connecting flight, they have nothing to do with it.
