What are Last Minute Flights?

Last minute flights are flights that are reserved closely to the departure date and time of the flight. Flights that are last minute are brought in the days or weeks leading up to the time of departure, however, they can be purchased on the day or the very same day of the flight. Passengers who book last minute flights are those who need to travel due to emergency circumstances. Last minute flights tend to be cheaper than buying flights months before the flight departure date as airlines will want to fill the empty seats on the plane, however this isn't always the case.
