In spite of several rejections of its offer to buy its rival Aer Lingus, Ryanair has not lost its self-assurance and recently it was revealed that Ryanair had held talks with a couple of airlines regarding selling Aer Lingus’ slots at London Heathrow.
As the summer season is approaching, the issue of where to fly and where to find affordable flights is getting ever more relevant. And that is where we come in. Take a look at this week’s selection of airfare deals from two traditional carriers and one low-cost airline.
Advantageous London fares from £139
These days, the German Lufthansa will get you from London to quite a number of the top cites for £139. The quoted fare is all-in for round-trip. Some examples:
Hi there. We start off this week with quite a number of new routes in an attempt to keep YOU updated. We will look into the new services very briefly as the sheer quantity does not allow us to go into the details.
One year ago Allegiant moved 10 of its routes from Orlando Sanford International Airport to Orlando International Airport but now announced the homecoming of all ten routes in a bid to consolidate its all Orlando flights. The routes in question are e.g. Orlando Sanford – Allentown, Orlando Sanford – Des Moines or Orlando Sanford – Lexington. By now the return of all the routes should be accomplished.
While Allegiant is reshuffling the existing routes, Skyways is growing big time. Following the merger with Avia Express and a shift in ownership, this Swedish-based low-cost airline is adding six new international destinations and one domestic destination to its route network. The carriers new base becomes Airport Jönköping. The change will be marked by the opening of new services from Jönköping to Brussels and from Jönköping to Berlin Tegel. Both services will be in operation as of March 28, 2011.
Passengers travelling from the green island of Ireland to France might want to know that in the period June 4 – August 31, 2011 they will have yet another opportunity to choose. The Irish low-cost airline Aer Arann announced it would reopen its summer services from Galway to Lorient and from Waterford to Lorient.
The reintroduction of these services is due to the fact that in the past they proved to be quite popular among Irish as well as French holiday-makers and travellers.
