Start planning your next low cost European holiday by booking your flight with one of the many budget airlines offering flights. Low Cost Airline Guide has a route search tool to find which airlines fly where.

A low cost airline is the cheapest means of transportation to take whether you’re planning on going around the world in eighty days (they do fly transatlantic), or just taking a trip down south to visit your parents. It’s called a no-frills carrier because it offers low fares to passengers whilst doing away with several traditional passenger services, some of which you may have taken for granted, like free food and drinks. Most airlines have only a single passenger class, and usually feature the Airbus 320’s or Boeing 737’s in their fleet of aircraft.

Another element of a low cost airline is that you usually can’t reserve a seat for yourself prior to boarding the plane (for free, at least). If you’re a fan of taking in aerial views and want the window seat, or are claustrophobic and prefer the aisle, we suggest you board the plane much in advance to avoid disappointment.

Many discount airlines tend to increase their fare as the plane fills up and early reservations are usually rewarded with the lowest fares, demonstrative of the price mechanism that operates in accordance to the forces of demand and supply (the basis of the study of economics). Additionally, these carriers bend towards flying to cheaper and less congested secondary airports either early in the morning or late in the evening. This way they succeed in preventing traffic delays while also taking advantage of lower landing fees. Most flights are short, and turnaround times are fast; allowing low cost carrier companies to make maximum utilization of their air crafts.
