What Are the Low-Cost Airlines?
The low-cost airlines are the airline companies, which do not include the following services into the cost of the tickets:
- Meals on the boards;
- Convenient time of departure;
- The luggage may be transferred for an additional fee;
- The money for the tickets are not returned on principle. etc.
Due to this they are able to establish the lowest price for the tickets. On the one hand it is very convenient for the travelers, but is not always good for those, who sell the tickets. The fact is that the low-cost airlines, as a rule, do not pay the fee for selling of the tickets to the agents (due to which they save the money as well).
This means that we do not have an opportunity to pay some profit to the partners.
We are not a ticket agency; we are the metasearch engine. That is why it is important for us, that a user of our site could find the cheapest tickets. We intentionally include the low-cost airlines into our search. But at a partner request for its marker we can turn off specific ticket agency or airline.

The Way to Make Money out of the Low-Cost Airlines
In order to receive a remuneration for some low-cost airlines you may buy a ticket from an agency, which makes its own surcharge. For this purpose, select an agency in the list of the tickets (if there are no agencies, this means that the airline company does not work with the agencies, available on our site).
In this case the price shall be a bit higher, than the airline company’s price. It shall be up to your discretion.
