Question of the weekI'm trying to find flights to Innsbruck for a long weekend in July. I'd prefer to go from East Midlands, but I can't find anything. I think I may have to go from London. - LA, East Midlands, UK
For a popular holiday location, Innsbruck is a devil to get to. Outside of the ski season, the only direct flight from the UK is easyJet's twice-weekly service from Gatwick.
With the grownup airlines, Frankfurt and Vienna are the most useful attack points; this means a connecting flight with some combo of Lufthansa and Austrian Airlines. I'm not sure where in the Midlands you are, but Lufthansa flies from both Birmingham and Manchester to Frankfurt. There's nowt from East Midlands itself.
If you will be hiring a car, consider flying to Munich and renting from there. Its a much bigger airport, with more routes to choose from, and the drive would only take a couple of hours. But if you do that, you'll miss out on the stunning views on the approach into Innsbruck.
