What is a non-stop flight?

A non-stop flight refers to flights with no intermediate stops. Your flight will go from your chosen departure airport to your destination airport without your feet touching the ground. Of course, getting a non-stop flight ticket to where you need to go is not always possible, but at Alternative Airlines, we can tell you if there is a non-stop flight available and, if not, show you the fastest flight available.

What's the difference between non-stop flights and direct flights?

Although the phrase "direct flight" is often used to describe non-stop flights, direct flights and non-stop flights are very different in the airline industry. When you buy a flight, it's important to remember that a direct flight is any flight between two points that doesn't change flight numbers. This means that your direct flight reservation can stop en route to you destination. Reasons for such stops may include allowing other passengers to get on and off or refuelling the plane. Check out our guide on how to purchase a non-stop flight with Alternative Airlines below to make sure you buy the flight that's right for you.

How to make a non-stop flight reservation with Alternative Airlines:

Search for your chosen flight as normal with Alternative Airlines.

On this page, you'll see all available flights for this route. By default, Alternative Airlines displays the lowest price flights first. If you want to only display non-stop flight routes, scroll down to the "stops" filter and select the option, "direct flights". Please be aware that there may not always be non-stop flights available for your chosen route.

Hang on - you just told me non-stop flights and direct flights are different!

They are! But at Alternative Airlines we understand that many of our customers are unaware of the confusing difference between non-stop flights and direct flights. When you select our direct flight option, you will, in fact, see all the non-stop flights available that will get you where you need to go. If you have any questions about non-stop flights, please contact us and we will be happy to help.

There you have it! Now, you'll be able to filter search to only display non-stop flights. Continue to make your reservation!

American Airlines launches new non-stop flights to Philadelphia
American Airlines has just announced that it will fly non-stop from Will Rogers World Airport, Oklahoma, to Philadelphia International Airport. From this week, the two new flights have been put on sale in a bid to increase the flight network between the Northeast and trans-Atlantic. The move is important for Oklahoma business travellers, who will see this new non-stop Eats Coast service as a big opportunity. The new flights will save over two hours in journey times. The first flight departs at 5:45 a.m. to make northeast connections in the morning, and the second is at 10:52 a.m. to make transatlantic connections in the afternoon. Flights will depart from Philadelphia at 9:10 p.m. and 11:44 p.m.

“At Alternative Airlines, we are always trying to make flight bookings easier for our customers. Adding a convenient search filter for non-stop flights was a natural fit.”
