Searching All LCCs

Tue Jun 12, 2007 4:24 am

Did a search and came up with nothing...

Is there a site that searches all (or most of LCCs) in Europe? sort of like Kayak for european LCCs? This woudl have been quite useful tool. There are quite a few of them there, and its getting harder to keep track of checking them all.

Thanks!

I use Skyscanner sometimes: www.skyscanner.net. They also allow you to search from country to country, sometimes useful to find interesting flights to unusal or unexpected regional airports.

The problem is that there are quite a lot of low-cost flights, namely those by Ryanair, that don't serve the primary airports, and so these flights often don't show up in common flight search engines.

If you're looking for what I think you are, here you go: http://www.floogie.com/en_GB/cheap-flights.html

Mmm, I prefer Dohop above Floogie. Floogie has the same disadvantages as most of the flight search engines: they only search flights from the exact indicated city pair, whereas Dohop does include the low-cost alternative airports.

For example, looking to go from Dusseldorf to Barcelona, Floogie only searches for DUS and BCN, whereas Dohop includes DUS, MGL and NRN for Dusseldorf, and BCN, GRO and REU for Barcelona. IMO this is quite useful for this kind of search engines.

This is one of the best ones to use, just don't book something on this site, it will cost an extra fee. Use it for info and fares, then go to the official airlines website.

You are right... it would have been better.
Brings up good question though: is there a site that searches LLCs in US? North/South America? Asia?

Was looking for flights from ZRH to AMS and that website wants to sell me a ticket for CHF85000, niceness!

Hi, this site is VERY handy, for all LCCs, everywhere:
