Three cheapest airports are located in London Although Heathrow is the most expensive in our list, on the other hand London also has three cheapest airports: we already mentioned first Stansted with £0.05198 per kilometre, second Luton offers £0.06241 and the cost of flights from the third Gatwick is £0.07221 per km.
Heathrow is the most expensive airport in Europe The fact that London Heathrow is the most expensive in UK might not come as such a surprise, however the fact that it is also the most expensive airport in Europe is quite a new discovery. Although it is the biggest airport in Europe, the difference in prices is quite large in comparison with the most of airports in top 10 – e.g. the second busiest airport in Europe, Paris Charles de Gaulle (CDG), has only £0.09180 per km on average.
