We weten allemaal dat Ryanair de goedkoopste low cost carrier in Europa is, toch? Nou, niet helemaal. Ryanair is beroemd om hun verborgen kosten en uit recent onderzoek van www.whichairline.com blijkt dat dat  een grote invloed heeft op de uiteindelijke priis In feite zijn er wanneer alle kosten worden opgeteld, 5 andere luchtvaartmaatschappijen die goedkoper zijn in Europa: Pegasus Airlines, Air Lituanica, Vueling, Germanwings en ​​Wizz Air. 

Who is the cheapest of them all in Europe?

In the research we made two lists to compare the cheapest airlines: first based on average basic prices of tickets (without fees) and second based on the prices of tickets including checked baggage fee for 20 kg bag.

 

Even though Ryanair is considered to be the cheapest airline, this is not true. It is second (after Pegasus Airlines) when comparing the basic fare without fees. The research shows that when the total fare is counted, including checked baggage fee for 20 kg bag, the cheapest carrier is Pegasus Airlines with a total average price of €64.64, followed by Air Lituanica (€81.36) and Vueling (€97.24). Ryanair comes in at 6th place with €100.67.

 

Only 4 out of 34 European low cost airlines came out with an average fare including fees under €100. Apart from those mentioned above that is germanwings with €98.99. On the other end of the list there are airlines with relatively high prices. The average flight with fees operated by Smart Wings costs €215.54, making it three times more expensive than Pegasus and more than twice the price of Ryanair.

The cheapest airlines in the world are in Asia

The cheapest airlines in the world are mainly gathered in Asia – the first place comes to Malaysian airline Firefly whose total fare including checked baggage fee is only €30.49 which is less than half of the price of the cheapest European airline Pegasus. Firefly is followed by SpiceJet (€52.24) and Onur Air (€55.70). While many would expect AirAsia to be the cheapest, it only comes in at 4th place with €60.13, popular Asian airline tigerair is ninth with €72.54. In the world comparison, Pegasus comes in at 7th place, Ryanair at 19th place only.
