London 2012 is a short name of ''The 2010 Summer Olympic Games'' that takes place in London, United Kingdom from July 27 to August 12, 2012. We want to present to you in this article the top 3 airlines that bring fans closer to their sporting heroes. You might object that it is quite early for this type of information but as soon as the airlines launch their bookings for the requested period, there might be a shortage of tickets. What's more, the sooner you book your ticket, the more you save.
There must be something special about London, because it is the first city to officially host the modern Olympic Games three times (previously in 1908 and in 1948). Even if you won't visit the sporting venues, you might find these information about airlines flying to London useful because this city is definitely worth visiting.
Let's start with the official airline partner – British Airways. British Airways is the national airline of the United Kingdom and one of the largest in Europe. The carrier operates domestic, short-haul and long-haul scheduled flights to destinations all over the world. Fans living far away from London don't have to worry. British Airways or any other member of the Oneworld airline alliance will bring them there.
Competition is healthy and therefore we introduce you another airline based in London. Virgin Atlantic operates long-haul flights from the United Kingdom to various destinations in North America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Australia.
Visiting the sporting events is an expensive pastime activity. That's why we present you the popular carrier Aer Lingus. You can save money on airline tickets and spend more during the Olympics. Aer Lingus is an Irish airline with the main hub in Dublin and it is not a member of any alliance. However, it has extensive codeshares with Oneworld, SkyTeam and Star Alliance members and JetBlue Airways.
We hope you find these information useful. If you decide to visit the Olympics, we wish you a nice sporting experience!
