- Book at least 2 weeks before departure in order to get a below-average price.
- High season is considered to be January, November and December. The cheapest month to fly to London is March.
- There are four possible airports that you can arrive at in London when flying from New Zealand. Heathrow (LHR) and Gatwick (LGW) are the two major airports with the largest number of flights and spread of airlines to choose from. Heathrow is the closer of these to the city centre, while Gatwick is ideal if your accommodation is located in the southern suburbs near Brixton or Wimbledon.
- London City Airport (LCY) is a good option if your destination is in the centre of the city and arriving as quick as possible is important, as a taxi will only take roughly 40 min and cost £35 (≈NZ$ 65). Stansted (STN) is located in the far northern suburbs of London and is a better travel option if you are planning to travel to neighbouring cities such as Cambridge or Luton.
- If you love nature and would like to escape the normal environment of an airport during a layover between New Zealand and London, choose a flight that has a stopover at Singapore Airport (SIN). Take in the beauty and abundance of life in the Butterfly Garden located in Terminal 3, or take a wonder through the Orchid Garden in Terminal 2 to take your mind off travel and reset.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.
We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.
We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.
Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.
