Post New flights to Gatwick and leeds

Hi Everyone,

Thought this might be of interest to people who dislike flying easy jet and Wizzair.

I received an newsletter from Bud airport-stating that
During this summer Norwegian air will be flying direct from Bud-Lgw plus
jet2 are restarting direct flights to Leeds. I wasn't sure if I could post the link here(can be seen as advertising?)...so if anyone wants the links send me a pm or I am sure if you search Google it will come up.

Samantha:)

Thanks S13, we flew Norwegian airlines just a couple of weeks ago, they are about on par with Easyjet but handier for us as they come in at Gatwick. One thing I found strange though is that they don't offer online checkin.

No probs with links to the airlines or skyscanner which will search most of the airlines for you.

Thanks Rural,

I might give them a try the next time I go home. Like you Gatwick is easier, I don't mind easy jet, but I always feel like I''m being interrogated with the hand luggage size ect.

How did you find Norwegian air with hand luggage?

Norwegian, for now, are cheaper than Easyjet and the cheaper airlines such as Ryanair and Wizzair are usually Luton or Stansted

I just checked and Easyjet actually do Budapest to Gatwick and Luton. I had not realised this but the only time I flew from Budapest I went with Wizzair anyway. Luton is better for me as I'm usually going to the Midlands. I see Easyjet also do Prague to Edinburgh which I might find useful.

Hi, no problem with hand luggage, certainly not the scenario we once witnessed with Ryanair when a fellow passenger was trying to remove the wheels from her case so as to avoid paying an extra £60 or £70

Fid - Ryanair fly from Manchester.
Flight times are different on different days, I find Tuesday offers the best time for me, 10:15 departure, arrive Bp at 13:50.
in 3 trips I have never had any wait to check my bag or any queue at security, and all 3 flights have arrives 15 to 20 mins early.
From Bp to Manchester tues flight is 14:20 depart, arrive 16:15, which leaves plenty of time either end for onward travel.
