If you’re booking flights from London to Singapore, you’ll land at Changi Airport (SIN) – one of the biggest transport hubs in southeast Asia and one of the most impressive airports in the world. There are around 12,230 flights from London to Singapore every week, so you can find one that suits your travel plans.
From London, you can set off from several different hubs, but if you want a direct flight from London to Singapore you’ll fly from London Heathrow Airport (LHR). Airlines including British Airways, Qantas and Singapore Airlines operate direct flights from here.
If you’re trying to find the cheapest tickets, you could also consider flying from a different London airport and including a stopover on your journey. Flights from London Gatwick (LGW) often include a layover in Dubai, for example, which could shave some money off your ticket price.
For great deals on flights from London to Singapore, it’s also worth considering peak and low seasons. The most expensive time for flight tickets is September, when ticket prices are at a premium. You’ll probably find that accommodation costs go up around this time, too.
On the other hand, you might find cheaper flights in December – when temperatures are a little lower and there’s generally more rain. That said, Singapore’s climate is fairly similar all year round, with high daytime temperatures and a fair number of showers.
