Useful info, stats and facts about Heathrow to India flights.

What airports serve Heathrow to India flights?

If you’re catching a flight to India from Heathrow you’ll depart from the UK’s busiest airport, London Heathrow Airport (LHR). It’s about 16 miles from the centre of London, and is roughly a 35-min drive along the M4 and then the A4. The fastest way to get there, however, is to take the Heathrow Express train, which leaves from London’s Paddington Station. You’ll land at one of three main airports in India, with most flights landing at Indira Gandhi International in New Delhi (DEL). This is India’s principal international airport, and consequently it’s busiest. Other main destinations on the route are Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (BOM), and Chennai International Airport (MAA).

Which airlines fly directly from Heathrow to India?

Most of the routes between Heathrow and India require at least one step over en route, with many requiring two or more. However you will be able to find a few direct flights, all of which are operated by Air India, landing at New Delhi Indira Gandhi. These are obviously the quickest flights, and will only take you about 9h, compared to up to 25h for a two-stop flight. A couple of them will only have you travelling for 8h, so these are well-worth booking through Cheapflights. You’ll also be pleased to know that these faster, direct flights can often even offer better value for money than the longer, indirect ones.
