Travelling to Wolverhampton by air

Air travel is increasingly cheap to use, and if you are based in Europe, getting to the UK can be very cheap indeed.

The best nearby airport is Birmingham International (BHX), which also has a railway station with a direct train from the airport to Wolverhampton. This train journal costs around £4 and takes about 20 minutes.

When flying to LUGRadio Live it may be much cheaper to fly to a London airport and take bus/train to get to Wolverhampton. The price difference can be as much as 2-4 lower priced airplane ticket. For instance Barcelona to Birmingham is around &250 roundtrip while a Barcelona to London trip might be found at around £100 roundtrip.

The London airport which gives you the shortest route is London Luton, which gives you a combined bus/train time of about 2,5 hours to get to Wolverhampton. If you choose this option, get the bus to Milton Keynes Central from Luton Airport and from Milton Keynes Virgin have trains going to Wolverhampton. The total bus/train price should be around £13 each way.
