LOW-COST AIRFARE MORE THAN A THIRD CHEAPER DESPITE EXTRAS

A new survey conducted by travel comparison website Kelkoo has confirmed that low-cost airlines save UK customers an average of 33% despite charging up to 44% of the base fare for extras.

The survey, where Kelkoo compared 5,000 fares from 20 different airlines, found that 37% of the cost of a budget airline ticket was comprised of added extras, whereas standard carrier only comprised 4%.

Chris Nixon, managing director of Kelkoo Travel said: “Nowadays, these ancillary charges can often form a substantial proportion of the total cost of flying and there is a misconception among consumers that the prices advertised by low-cost carriers can be misleading and work out more expensive than those offered by conventional airlines once all these costs are factored in.”

“The fact is that low cost carriers remain a third cheaper than traditional airlines, despite the significant charges they levy on their passengers.”
