What are Last Minute Flights?

Last minute flights are flights purchased close to the departure date and time of the flight you wish to fly. Last minute flights are usually brought a few days or weeks before the departure date, but can also be bought on the day or the the day before the flight. Passengers who book last minute flights normally need to travel due to emergency circumstances. Last minute flights can sometimes be cheaper as airlines often need to fill up the empty seats on the plane, however this is not always guaranteed.

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.
