Expensive flights

Fed up hearing Coronavirus is forcing flight prices down as it certainly isn't our experience looking for flights to Turkey

Am I just looking too early at 3 months ahead of arrival dates or are all Turkey flights dearer this season?

Re: Expensive flights

They are dearer, less competition since Thomas Cook went under. I have just flown back jet 2, they simply do not hold a candle to Thomas Cook. They wanted 47 Euros to check a bag in, but then they covert that to GBP at 1 to 1. Rip-off merchants.

Re: Expensive flights

I would have thought both flight and property prices would be takening a hit if this Coronavirus gets really out of hand.

Re: Expensive flights

Short answer, Saoirse, yes, definitely more expensive.

We used to fly TC from Cardiff for reasonable fares.
Went online before Christmas to find some alternatives. To my horror, only Tui was flying from Cardiff and they wanted a total of 1600 for a return flight for 2 to DLM leaving April 20 returning July 22. That did not include any bags or seat choices.
We will be flying from Bristol , same dates, with Easyjet. Identical flight dates, seats booked, hand luggage only, total for 2, 308.

Just keeping fingers crossed that we'll still be able to go.

Re: Expensive flights

I just get up early and book on easy jet sale day we've got 3 return flights booked for 110 each however take look now and they are ridiculous.
Easy Jet have gone back into the package holiday business like TUI and Jet 2 so I expect we will pay a lot more .
I would have thought that some of the Turkish carriers would have provided some competition but no

Re: Expensive flights

I dont think I would pre-book flights to anywhere at the moment, unless you're guaranteed to get your money back if restrictions on your destination occurs.
TBF though, travelling from one country to another should be well thought out by individualls. ALL health systems everywhere will be under the cosh for the next few months. Its no longer a case of getting from A to B, its getting stuck in B that needs to be considered.

Re: Expensive flights

I haven't found jet2 expensive at all.
In fact my last flight cost me less than 120 including 66kg luggage & meal & seat number.
Their customer service and organisation at the airport and in flight wipes the floor with tc in my experience.

Re: Expensive flights

We have daily scheduled flights Valencia to Istanbul ( then onward transfer to Dalaman) with Turkish Airlines

Although they periodically do excellent half price offers usually you're looking at €400 each

Ain't cheap
