Easy transfers into London

Book a premium Blacklane service when you land at London Stansted Airport (STN) for a fast and convenient taxi alternative. Your private chauffeur will greet you in the Stansted Airport arrivals hall with a personalised sign, and you’ll travel directly into the city in an executive vehicle. Use the 1 hour 30 minute travel time to catch up on a few emails or simply relax in the spacious backseat. Despite its name, London Stansted Airport is around 40 miles from central London, and is closer to Cambridge than the capital. As a result, travelling to and from the airport can be a little complicated if you do not live in northern London. A Blacklane private transfer could be the perfect solution. Book a Stansted Airport car service and enjoy a fast and premium connection from the airport to your hotel, event, or business meeting in London. Blacklane can also transfer you to a number of other locations around the UK.
