Who are low-cost carriers?

Otherwise, these are aviation discounters, or carriers with low prices, but with a lot of restrictions. It is not always the most profitable offer - for example, if you have luggage and you buy a ticket shortly before departure, you may not save money. In addition, airlines that do not position themselves as budget airlines often have various discounts and sales.

How to buy a ticket most profitably?

To make significant savings, you need to meet several conditions.

Buy a ticket in advance

The further the departure date, the lower the price. This way, airlines minimize costs and forecast profits - because in most cases tickets are non-refundable.

Travel without luggage

All budget airlines offer the most advantageous tariffs without baggage. And when buying additional space for a suitcase, the price may no longer be so attractive. So if you are traveling with luggage, it is better to compare tariffs. For example, on Aviasales offers are displayed both with luggage and without, and at the search stage, you can estimate how attractive this offer is.

Have a clear plan

If you are not sure you will fly, it is better not to use the services of budget airlines - almost all their tariffs are non-refundable. However, there are options to make the ticket refundable, but in this case, its cost will significantly increase.

Which budget airlines fly to Cyprus?

There are two main and most famous low-cost carriers flying to Cyprus - RyanAir and WizzAir. At the same time, it can be said that they have divided spheres of influence. But there is a third player - EasyJet.

RyanAir

Operates flights almost exclusively to Paphos, but from more than 20 airports in Europe. However, there are several flights to Larnaca as well. You can check the schedule on the carrier's website, or use search engines like Aviasales.ru or Trip.com.

WizzAir

This Hungarian low-cost carrier, on the contrary, mainly flies from Larnaca. Although the route network is not as wide as that of its Irish counterpart RyanAir, there is still plenty to choose from. You can check the schedule again on the airline's website, or use the same search engines - Aviasales.ru and Trip.com.

EasyJet

The British low-cost carrier operates quite a few flights from both Paphos and Larnaca. But most of them are to the UK, and from Paphos, all flights go to the British Isles. In any case, here is the website of this airline.
