It takes about one hour and 45 minutes to fly from London to Paris. This is the amount of time that it takes British Airways' regularly scheduled direct flights to travel from London's Heathrow Airport to Orly or Charles de Gaulle Airports in Paris.
The short distance between the two cities makes London to Paris a well-traveled route by air, land and sea. The Channel Tunnel provides a second option for travelers who want to make the trip quickly. The Eurostar high-speed train leaves from the St. Pancras station in downtown London, crosses beneath the English Channel via the Channel Tunnel and arrives at Gare du Nord in downtown Paris in approximately two hours and 15 minutes.
