Business entrepreneurs have long since realised that what people want
most from airlines is cheap flight tickets. The first low cost airline
in the UK was established by the late Sir Freddie Laker, whose Skytrain
service first crossed the Atlantic in 1977. Sir Freddie was right in
thinking that people were prepared to sacrifice the frills of luxury
flight in return for getting their flight at the best price. Laker was
an inspiration to other UK airline entrepreneurs, including Virgin Atlantic
Sir Richard Branson, and Easyjet founder Stelios Haji-Ioannou.

Cheap Flight Tickets FAQ
What tips do you have for buying cheap flight tickets?
Book the flight early. If flights start to get full, then airlines will
increase prices as business travellers will be prepared to pay most for
a last-minute ticket.
See whether there are any alternative airports you could fly to more
cheaply. For example, if you were looking for a cheap flight to New York,
you might find it cheaper to fly to Newark Liberty International
Airport, New Jersey, which is 16 miles from midtown Manhattan, rather
than JFK International, which is 12 miles from lower Manhattan.
If you can be flexible, pick your time of flight carefully. Flight prices
can vary widely according to day of the week and time of year. If you can, consider flying midweek instead of at the weekend, as this can be a lot cheaper. Tuesdays and Wednesdays tend to be the cheapest days to fly. Sunday is often the most expensive day for a return flight to the UK.

About the Cheap Flight Airlines
When flying with the budget airlines specialising in cheap flights, such as Jet2, Flybe and BMI Baby, it is worth remembering the following:
- Budget airlines make their flights as cheap as possible by offering a barebones flight price, and then making a charge for extras such as additional bags requiring checking in and excess baggage fees.
- The cheap flight airlines will charge a booking fee to your payment card. This is usually more for credit cards than debit cards so decide carefully on which card to use when booking your flight. When we last checked Ryanair, easyJet and Flybe did not charge a booking fee when paying with a Visa Electron card.
- If you are trying to avoid extra charges by only taking hand luggage on your flight, then check the weight and dimension restrictions carefully. If you go over then you may have to check your bag and incur a cost.
Other Ways to Save Money When Flying
If you are intending to book car hire, then remember to search online for car hire offers, as this is one of the best ways to find a good deal.
