    Where Can I Fly to From a Specific UK Airport? 11th Aug 18 at 11:19 AM
    *Surely* there is a website somewhere that I can see where my nearest international airports fly to? Why would I want to have to first find somewhere I want to go on holiday, get all excited about it and *then* spend hours trying to find an airport nearby that serves it, only to discover that none actually do?!!

    We don't all live within an hour or so of London!

    HELP!!!

    Go to that specific airports website, they will give you the destinations usually.

    Thanks. That may be so, but none that I have looked at give you a *map* of where they go, just a list of place-names, 95% of which I've never heard of, so you pretty much have to know where you want to go before you start. Wouldn't a map just be *so* simple and *so* useful?

    Seems like an obvious website project for someone!

    If you put your local airport into Skyscanner and search 'Everywhere' it'll given you a list of countries. You can then select a country and it'll show the destinations within the country, and whether it's a direct or indirect flight.

    Put the airport you want to fly from in the From box and leave the To empty. You then can filter by specific airlines.

    Google Flights will do exactly what you want, you can enter multiple departure airports and see a map of destinations with prices:

    https://www.google.co.uk/flights/

    You'll need to select "non-stop only" to see only direct flights.

    Flightradar24. Click on an airport and you can then select 'routes'. At the momemt it only gives routes for 7 days, but timetables don't change significantly from week to week.

    Gatwick, Stanstead, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, but also smaller airports like Edinburgh, Newcastle, Doncaster, Leeds/Bradford, Liverpool, East Midlands, Cardiff, Bristol, Luton, personally I think the OP is going about it the wrong way, why not just pick a destination or a list of destinations and then check if there are flights from the closest airports, all the airports I've listed will cover most short haul destinations, many handling worldwide destinations. I was responding to the 'Not everyone lives within an hour of London' comment which I thought was pointless as there are other large airports outside the home counties, Manchester being one of them.

    Surely you decide where to go first, not the airport you want to fly from ? I quite happily fly from airports that aren't near me as it's quite often the cheaper option.
