Airline Tickets and Flights
Air Transport is the fastest way to get from point A to point B, but it is the most expensive as well. Sometimes it is even the only way to go to hard-to-reach places. It is most widely used for passenger transportation and also for cargos (especially perishable and valuable goods) and parcel post at lower extent.
Airline companies offer domestic and international air transport services which you can take advantage of by purchasing an airline ticket. Tickets could be reserved and purchased from the airline offices, as well as tour operator offices or directly on the internet.
During the past years the low-cost airlines made their appearance – they offer generally low fares, which sometimes could measure up to 1 Euro. There is a trick though – the low ticket price gets dressed up in so many and different airport taxes that one could argue where the better profit is. The airport taxes are set by the airport administrations and are not defined by the airlines. They depend on the duration of stay, type of the airport, fuel price, security levels, etc., but most of all on the contracts between the airline company and the airports.
One is certain though, the earlier you book/buy your ticket, the less you will have to pay for it.
If you are of spontaneous and improvising nature, you could take advantage of the actual and budget attractive last-minute offers. You can be a discoverer and traveler and explore places you’ve never even thought of visiting.
Some airline companies have loyalty membership programmes, that offer a lot of benefits – free flights to a chosen destination, rent-a-car discount s, priority over none membership passengers when booking a regular flight, check-in at the business class counter, more luggage load.
