London To AMS

Sat Jul 03, 2004 7:33 am

Hello to all those who know something about traveling between LHR, LGW or LCY to AMS.

I need to fly from London to AMS on July 13 and coming back n July 18. Can anybody tell me what would be the cheapest ticket on this route.

My another question is, how far is LGW from LHR and LCY from LHR. I know that National Express goes between LHR and LGW. How long does it take to get from LHR to LCY?

Thanks for help.

Hi Ales,
here's link to an excellent journey planner for London public transport:

This is what I got from searching on http://www.lastminute.com. Direct flight Gatwick-Amsterdam with British Airways for 66 GBP incl. taxes, which is cheaper than EasyJet where the cheapest combination of flights on given dates costs 86GBP:

L410Turbolet:

Thanks for your help. The lastminute.com website is really helpfull. Also the transportation website in London is great. Thanks a lot.

I was thinking rather than go to LGW and fly BA for GBP 67.00 plus GBP 35.00, I can fly directly from LHR to AMS on British Midland for about 100 GBP which I found on their website.

Maybe I am gonna fly one way from LGW, just want to see the airport because I have never been there. And on the way back I will fly to LHR with BD.

Usually British Midland turns out the cheapest. Especially if you add in the aditional costs of going from central London to the airport. Getting to LHR is quite a bit cheaper than getting to LGW/STN/LTN.
Attamottamotta!
