The majority of flights to Miami from London depart from Heathrow Airport. Fly non-stop with Virgin Atlantic in just under ten hours, or opt for a direct flight with the British Airways-American Airlines partnership.
The cheapest Miami flights often incorporate stopovers, and you could save hundreds of pounds by booking a connecting flight. Examples include an Air Europa flight with an overnight stay in Madrid, a TAP Portugal flight with a Lisbon stopover, or an Aeromexico flight with a short stop in Mexico City. Be prepared to kill some time, however, as an indirect flight will extend your journey by at least three hours.
Direct flights to Miami Airport other than those from Heathrow are limited.
Thomas Cook offers a non-stop service from Manchester to Miami International Airport that takes just under nine and a half hours and departs bi-weekly.
There are plenty of reasonably speedy indirect options from Manchester too, including an Air France flight with a stopover in Paris that takes around 14 hours. Air France also offers flights from Edinburgh and Glasgow with a stopover in Amsterdam.
From other UK airports, including Belfast and Aberdeen, the cheapest Miami flight deals in 2017 involve a change at Heathrow.

If the idea of a stopover sends your spirits plummeting, consider flying to Orlando and hiring a car for the three-and-a-half-hour drive to Miami. Delta and Virgin Atlantic both run direct flights from Manchester and there are flights from Glasgow to Orlando with Thomas Cook and Virgin Atlantic. You can also fly direct to Orlando from London.
Prices tend to be competitive thanks to the popularity of Orlando, so it’s worth considering this route as an alternative to cheap Miami flights. The best bit? You could squeeze in a visit to Disney World en-route.
The easiest way to enjoy a cheap Miami holiday is to travel by air, but there are alternatives for more intrepid travellers. If you have time on your hands and fancy a spot of adventure then why not fly into a city further north on the East Coast and hop on a Greyhound bus? Flying to New York, for example, can be very cheap and there are plenty of exciting destinations to hit on the way down, including Washington DC, Jacksonville and Orlando.
Prefer your adventures to be a tad more comfortable? Alongside its official ‘Magic City’ nickname, Miami is often dubbed the ‘cruise capital of the world’. Nearly five million cruise passengers visit the city every year with ships docking at PortMiami daily. If you’re not short on time or cash then a 2017 Miami-bound cruise holiday could be just what the doctor ordered.
