What are Last Minute Flights?

Last minute flights are flights that are brought 'last minute'. These types of flights are normally purchased a few days or weeks ahead of the departure date and time of the flight. Last minute flights are usually brought by those that need to travel urgently or by business travellers. You can find cheaper deals with last minute flights as airlines need to fill the empty seats on the plane, but there's no guarantee that all last minute flights are cheaper.

At Alternative Airlines, the majority of our e-tickets are sent to you instantly or within 2 hours via email. Please note, when booking last minute flights, in some cases it might take up to 24 hours to receive your e-ticket.
