What are Last Minute Flights?

Last minute flights are flights that are purchased close to the departure date and time of your flight. These flights are usually brought a few days or weeks before the departure date, but it can sometimes be bought on the day of the flights. Last minute flights are common for those who need to travel due to emergency circumstances.
