The most precious list of all low-cost airlines in the world
Low cost airline ( low-cost carrier , discounter) ( English low-cost carrier, low-cost airline, also English no-frills carrier, discount carrier, budget carrier ) - an airline that offers an extremely low fare in exchange for canceling the majority traditional passenger services. The term low-cost is borrowed in many languages of the world from the English language, where it originally applied to all airlines with a lower structure of operating costs than their competitors. While the term low-cost is often applied to any airline with low ticket prices and a limited range of services, regardless of their operating models, low-cost airlines should not be confused with regional airlines that operate on short flights without a service or with airlines with full service, but limiting the range of services.
To travel, it is not necessary to spend a huge amount of money. Just imagine, there are already airlines for which a ticket is cheaper than an intercity bus ticket. The homeland of the low-cost concept is the USA, from where it spread to Europe in the early 1990s and later in many countries of the world.
We at Shram.kiev.ua worked hard and compiled a list of the largest low-cost airlines in the world, which for a penny will take you anywhere in our beloved planet. Save yourself and share with everyone!
