Alternative engine adds low cost carriers

31st Jan 2008

Alternative Airlines has now added an
additional 40 low cost airlines to its growing list of carriers.
The latest additions to the Alternative Airlines website extends the offers
available allowing users the chance to book from over 300 different
carriers, including many local, regional and low cost airlines that do not
have easy to book, online booking facilities anywhere else.

Amongst the new carriers are several large low cost regional airlines like
Gol of Brazil which is the largest low cost airline in Brazil operating
domestic flights throughout Brazil from its main hub at Sao Paulo, and
Iceland Express which links Reykjavik with 15 cities in Europe.


Other notable additions are the inclusion of SmartWings which is a Czech
low cost leisure airline based in Prague and SpiceJet, a low cost Indian
carrier based in New Delhi, with a fleet of modern Boeing aircraft which
operates flights to 14 major Indian cities.



Alternative Airlines is continually adding more and more carriers to the
booking engine and aims to make its website a place where users can book
flights for any airline in the world.  With it’s wealth of information on
global carriers, the Alternative Airlines website has also become a
favourite amongst airline enthusiasts, who can read up on the latest
airlines to be launched.


A spokesman for Alternative Airlines commented:

“This is a real breakthrough. By adding low cost airlines to our
availability search, we can now offer our customers even more choice of
airlines. Passengers often want to book the cheapest possible fare,
regardless of whether in-flight meals are provided or whether they can get
seats allocated at check-in, but traditional travel agency systems show
flight availability only for full service carriers. In a world where the
importance of low cost airlines is growing rapidly, this isn’t good enough.
Alternative Airlines is all about offering more choice of airlines and it
was vital to bridge this technology gap.“v
