Los Angeles flight FAQs

What's the cheapest time to fly to Los Angeles?

Thanks to its year-round mild climate, LA makes for a popular destination with millions of visitors at all times. However, the months of June, July and August are particularly busy times for LA tourism, so fares can be higher during that period. To find our cheapest flights to Los Angeles, use our lowest fare finder.

How long is the flight time from London to Los Angeles?

You can touch down in just over 11 hours. Fly direct from London Heathrow (LHR) to Los Angeles International (LAX).

Where is LAX and what is the best way to get into Los Angeles?

Los Angeles International Airport is situated in the west of the LA area. When you land at Los Angeles International, there are plenty of options for getting into the city and to your hotel. LA City Cab offers flat fares from LAX to Downtown for $46.50 (excluding tolls, surcharges and tips) – this usually takes 60 minutes, but depends heavily on the traffic. Alternatively, hop on the no-reservation FlyAway shuttle bus which takes you from the airport to various locations including Hollywood and Long Beach, from just $8. Or, if you are planning on staying for a while your best bet is to hire a car. Did you know you can pre-book your shuttle or private airport transfer with us? Just add it to your flight or holiday booking.

Do I need a visa to travel to Los Angeles?

If you’re travelling on a British passport, there’s no need to get a visa in advance – but you do need to apply for an ESTA  at least 72 hours before you travel. There is a $14 fee for registration and, once approved, your ESTA is valid for multiple journeys for two years or until your passport expires.
