    Im really sad to see that there are no Turkish destinations on the Flightchecker.

    Why is that?

    The FlightChecker only includes the destinations that the airlines fly to. If we're missing any (its possible we've not tracked all - but we try) or there are any budget airlnes you'd like added in - just let us know.

    I have been searching tonight for budget airline flights to Budapest in March. I discovered that Ryanair goes there from both East Midlands and Liverpool - but neither of these routes is currently showing up on the new Flightchecker - or it could be me!! The only routes I could see were from the south, nothing at all from the north.
    Hope this can be resolved soon as I think the Flightchecker is brilliant!

    Hi I wonder if anyone can help me.. looking to book some flights to alicante this evening.. flying from the London area and this will the first time i will have booked flight only. On flight checker it says you can pick and mix you flights.. does this mean I can say depart from London Stansted, but arrive back from Alicante at London Luton if this means I can save a few hardearned pennies? If so then would it matter if I booked it as return flights or would this have to be both "one way" journeys? It just soooo confuzzleing and I just don't want to make a booboo

    Thanks for your time in advance!

    For Alicante look at

    Sometimes a few pennies saved can cost more in extra pennies getting to and from the airport, sometimes the total travel cost is cheaper going from your nearest airport.

    If you want to see who flies where in Europe (no fares unfortunately) this site is very good: though it may not be completely up to date.

    Im hoping to go back to Italy end of May next year but the flight checker doesnt allow me to go that far ahead. Ive looked at the budget airline sites too but cant come up with any good deals. Ive just returned having booked about 2 months in advance and got a really good deal.

    I thought that flights were cheapest the earlier you booked, but is it too early?

    Its also school hoilday time then, will that make a difference?

    Is it possible to get a cheap flight now or do i need to bide my time and see if any deals come up?

    Advice much appreciated.

    Shame that the flight departure times are now omitted, it can cost a lot extra to get to the airport in the very early morning, the flight may be cheap but a taxi isn't because there is no public transport very early in the morning to the airport.

    I would like to see Waterford Republic of Ireland added.
    With Aerarran flying between Birmingham and there. Plus the Luton/Waterford, they now have prices maybe not the "Flights for a Fiver" but certainly bargains.
    Can it be added?

    Manchester to Lisbon isn't offered as an option even though the flight is offered direct by Thomsonfly. Any reason why?

    Use of Flightchecker
    Hi there,

    I am new to this site and love it. I am looking for a couple of different timed return flights to Cyprus and found some great ones on flightchecker. Details there point to Mytravellite but when I click to go to their site that site says that they are not flying in the winter months and therefore the flights do not exist.

    What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated.

    It will depend on when the airlines release their fares - the flightchecker works by scanning the airlines own flight listings & prices, so if the airlines don't have them available, our flightchecker won't either...

    Previous information
    Is there any way of getting a dump of previous prices for a particular route and airline. I'm thinking specifically for Ryanair to Tampere from Stansted.

    Previously they have lowered there prices approximately 2 months before Christmas, but for the rest of the year it's about 1 month before departure.

    Would it be possible to get a dump of previous data, so that I could verify this.

    Obviously it varies depending on the number of seats sold, but there is a definite point at which Ryanair cut the prices.

    Many thanks
