On the flight search results page, we show all available flights from each airline flying your chosen route.
Personalise your search: use our handy filters on the left-hand side of the page to personalise your search. Or, sort your search by lowest price or fastest route.
Once you have chosen the flight perfect for you. Confirm your selection.
No nasty surprises: we want to make sure you get the right flight! Click on the blue details icon to see complete flight details and fare rules.
Here you can find out details such as the seat pitch, and food or drink services, the aircraft flying on and what baggage is included.
You'll be redirected to the passenger details page where we'll hold your seats for 20 minutes. But you won't need that long, it only takes a minute! All you need to do is:
