Book a fling with the Far East when you take your seat aboard flights to Singapore from London Heathrow. A convergence of cultures has created a fascinating heritage and sublime food scene, while city architects have brought gleaming modernity into the blend. Add a throng of family attractions and you have one of the best long-haul city destinations on the planet.
London Heathrow Airport (LHR) is the UK’s premier departure point for flights to Singapore’s Changi Airport (SIN). Direct flights, which take an average of 13 hours, are available with carriers including British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Singapore Airlines.
Be sure to compare direct fares with connecting flights that include one or two stops. Though the overall journey time is longer, bargain fares are widely available for indirect flights (stopover points include Istanbul, with Turkish Airlines, and Kuala Lumpur, with Malaysia Airlines).
The UK’s busiest airport and a major hub for international travel, Heathrow Airport serves around 75 million passengers each year.
Getting there is easy, whether you are travelling the short distance from central London or coming from elsewhere in England. Buses, coaches and both underground and over ground rail services arrive at Heathrow. One of the fastest methods of transport from the capital is the Heathrow Express train from London Paddington, which whisks passengers to the airport in just 15 minutes.
Millions of passengers arrive in their own cars and parking both on and off site is plentiful. Compare deals well in advance of your trip to make significant savings on the drive-up price. Heathrow hotels that offer car parking are another option worth considering, particularly if you have an early flight or are driving a long distance before your flight.
Each of Heathrow’s four terminals (2, 3, 4 and 5) has a range of top amenities, including shops, eateries, bars, children’s play areas, prayer rooms and lounges, which take pre-flight indulgence to a new level.
You should arrive at Heathrow 2-3 hours prior to your scheduled departure time.
It’s vital to know from which terminal you will fly when catching flights from Heathrow to Singapore. The vast nature of this airport means lengthy transfer times between the terminals.
If you’re flying from London Heathrow to Singapore with British Airways, it is likely that you will depart from Terminal 5.
Services with Singapore Airlines and Virgin Atlantic take off from Terminal 2.
While this is the norm, you should always check on the Heathrow Airport website before you book any terminal-specific products, such as parking or lounges.
Plan airport transfers and avoid a headache upon arrival.
Take a taxi from the airport and you could be checking in at your central hotel in just 30 minutes. Expect to pay 20 to 40 Singapore dollars (around £11-22).
For a cheaper ride on public transport, do some research on your hotel’s nearest MRT stop and hop aboard this fast, efficient and good-value rail service. Buses and airport shuttle services are also cheap, but do remember to factor in any journeys on foot from the bus or train station, especially if you have young children and/or heavy luggage.
Another popular option is Singapore car hire, which offers freedom and independence during your stay.

Singapore might be small (not even 300 square miles) but big thinking and careful planning have made this a hugely popular long-haul destination – and no longer simply a stopover point en route to Australia.
The dining is superb, the cocktails are world famous (Singapore Sling at Raffles anyone?), and the shopping is worth saving a few kilos worth of luggage space for. Family attractions are bold and brilliant, with Singapore Zoo, the Night Safari, and Sentosa Island – home to Universal Studios and other favourites – providing more than enough fuel to forge amazing memories.
The history and heritage of Singapore cannot be overlooked; its transformation from fishing village to the Lion City (home to more than five million people) can be explored in a number of absorbing ways.
