...Flying Direct to New York from the UK

Statue of Liberty

Direct flights from the UK are common and you can fly from local airports directly into New York Newark. Continental flies from several local airports and is defintely worth serious consideration. Other direct flight carriers include Delta, American Airlines, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. Deciding to fly direct greatly reduces your flight options and thus cheap flight options however it greatly reduces the overall flight journey and is a far more pleasant and comfortable experience than spending time in a stopover airport.

...Flying to New York from Ireland

Times Square

You can fly direct to New York from Belfast, Dublin and Shannon (which is on the west coast of Ireland). Flying from the UK with a Dublin or Shannon stopover should definitely be considered. Aer Lingus fly out of several local UK airports with a short stopover in Dublin or Shannon however Ireland is essentially en-route when flying to New York from the UK. The relatively short duration of the stopover as well as the stopover being en route makes this one of the most hassle free 1-stop options out of the UK to New York. Continental also offer direct flights to New York Neward from Belfast.

...Flying to the New York via Mainland Europe

Empire State Building

...Flying to the New York via Iceland

Central Park

One of the most interesting options when flying from the UK or Ireland to New York is to fly Iceland Air via Reykjavik. The outbound journey constitutes roughly one third of the journey time and breaks up the trip nicely. Furthermore you can also, if you wish, extend the stopover and spend some time in Iceland. A major benefit of flying through Iceland is that it offers a stopover without the pain and hassle usually associated with one of Europes major hub airports such as London Heathrow or Amsterdam Schiphol.
