The extra charges on lesser known airlines

Lesser Known Airline Costs

Research recently published by Amadeus Air Traffic Travel Intelligence* has found that more than half of all flights from the UK are currently operated by low-cost carriers, a rise of 4% compared to 2011. Having compared charges for the larger, better know low cost carriers before, Airport Parking and Hotels is now helping travellers ensure they know the full facts by comparing the extra hidden charges on some of the lesser-known airlines.
