idealo Flights reveals possible worse deals from non-London airports

February 3rd, 20160 Comments »

A report released by idealo Flights indicates that passengers flying out from non-London airports are at a disadvantage when it comes to getting the best deals on flights.

Taking a look at last-minute flights for a Valentine’s Weekend getaway, the research reveals that the cost of a return flight to Paris could be up to 146% more expensive when your local airport is not in the London area.




A comparison of UK routes to Paris:

Route Price(GBP)
Gatwick-CDG: 108
Luton-CDG: 123
Heathrow-ORY: 132
Edinburgh-CDG: 176
Birmingham-CDG: 179
London City-ORY: 192
Cardiff-CDG: 196
Liverpool-CDG: 200
Bristol-CDG: 203
Belfast-CDG: 209
Newcastle-CDG: 220
Manchester-CDG: 227
Glasgow-CDG: 239
Aberdeen-CDG: 245
Leeds/Bradford-CDG: 266

Couples looking to fly out to Paris on Friday 12th February returning Sunday 14th February are much more likely to find a good deal when searching from a London airport.

The most expensive place to fly from was the Yorkshire area, with a return flight costing 266 GBP per person. Other departure airports with steep last-minute prices were Glasgow and Aberdeen – those based in the Edinburgh area get a substantially cheaper fare to the French capital for Valentine’s Weekend with tickets from 176 GBP at the time of research.

Prices were researched on 27th January 2016 and are subject to change and availability.
