Hello All,
I would need some help with locating closest airport to the city in the title where scheduled air service is provided.

I would like to visit a friend on mine who is teaching in this town before he will move to Berne, Switzerland. I would be flying from PRG.

Thanks
ALes


Next Flight: Oct 10: PRG-MUC-KIV EMB 195/CRJ 900, Oct 12: KIV-MUC-PRG CRJ900/EMB 195 wiht Lufthansa

Shame that Kent has closed down with the demise of EUjet....
I'd imagine Gatwick would be easiest to get to, come round on the M26 headed to Brighton..
Any other ideas?
SOU?

Gatwick is the closest airport to Canterbury but I think any of the London airports are viable options as there are good bus/train links with Canterbury.

Kent International, at Manston, would be the obvious choice, but that isn't a viable option. So, you will have to choose from LGW, LHR, LTN or STN.

Quoting Adamlaskiewicz (Reply 3):

Not from the airports there aren't; indeed, there aren't even National Express buses from neither LHR nor LGW to Canterbury, except via London Victoria. Likewise, all trains go via London or other places, such as Tonbridge. By train, it'll take 2-2.5 hours from LGW; about 2.5 hours from LHR (using the Tube to London Victoria or Charing Cross); about 2.5-2.75 hours from LTN Parkway, normally via London Bridge and Tonbridge; and about 3-3.5 hours from STN (Stansted Express to London Liverpool Street, thence Tube to Charing Cross, thence train to Canterbury). So, time-wise, it doesn't make a huge amount of difference into which London airport you fly. For times, prices, etc., visit www.thetrainline.co.uk.

It's not closed down. It presently has charter and cargo flights
