Air Travel

Hertford is served by two airports, London Stansted and London Luton, both of which are about 20 miles from the town.

Both airports offer services to a wide range of European cities, plus a handful to North America.

The main airlines at both of these airports are Ryanair and Easyjet. Air Berlin also offers a wide range of schedules from Stansted, whilst Luton serves a number of charter airlines such as Thomson and Monarch.

You can also use London City Airport, which serves short-haul destinations in the UK and Northern Europe.

Getting To and From The Airport

By Car

The car journey to Stansted is quite straightforward, travelling North up the A10 dual carriageway to the junction with the A120 and then heading East towards Bishops Stortford. Just before reaching Bishops Stortford, turn left and take the A120 bypass, which should take you to the M11 junction at Stansted Airport. The journey time is around 35 minutes but can be longer during rush hours due to congestion at Little Hadham.

To get to Luton by car also takes around 35-45 minutes by taking the A414 to Hatfield and then the B653 to Luton.

By Bus

The National Express Coach service 767 runs directly to both airports and takes around 45 minutes, departing from Tesco's supermarket in Mill Road (5 minutes from the town centre). The cost is around £7 each way.

By Train

There is no direct train service to Stansted or Luton. To travel to Stansted by train requires one or two changes at either Broxbourne or Tottenham Hale, and then sometimes at Bishops Stortford as well. Travel to Luiton Airport also entails two changes and requires you to travel into London, changing at Kings Cross.

The National Rail website has a journey planner that may help with planning a train journey to the airport.

By Taxi

A taxi to the airport will cost around £35.
