London, ON Airport Information

London International Airport (YXU)

Approximate taxi fare: $36 CAD

Ranked as the 12th busiest passenger airport in Canada, London International Airport is easily accessible just north of highway 401 along Oxford Street. The London Convention Centre, only 11 kilometers away, is less than a 20-minute drive from the airport.

London International is serviced by six airlines and tour operators. Daily flights travel to Canadian and U.S. cities such as Toronto, Ottawa, Detroit, Calgary, Winnipeg as well as various vacation destinations in Mexico. Travelers to other international destinations typically fly into Toronto, where they connect to London by a short 40-minute flight. By car, the airport is less than a two-hour drive away from both Toronto and Detroit.

Prompted by growth in the area, increased passenger traffic and the addition of Westjet into the London market, London International Airport completed a terminal renovation and expansion in 2003. In a joint venture with the city of London, the airport continues to develop the Skyway Industrial Park, a 300-acre hub of business activity adjacent to the airport with excellent access to the 400 series highways that connect Southern Ontario.

Whether a cup of coffee or a full dinner, travelers can enjoy dining options at the airport such as Tim Hortons and Grille Works Eatery and Bar. Wireless internet is available throughout the terminal. Short-term and long-term parking is available on the west side of the airport, opposite to the Airport Terminal Building.
