You may not have heard of Willie Walsh before, he runs the high cost airline British Airways which has been ripping off passengers, with inflated fares, flying from Manchester for longer than we can remember.

Philip Meeson and his team at on the other hand have been bringing low cost fares to the North for many years. already offers low cost services from Manchester to many exciting European cities. Alongside Amsterdam, Budapest, Geneva, London, Milan, Nice, Pisa, Rome and Valencia, we are delighted today to announce new low cost services to Barcelona, Berlin, Paris, Toulouse, Venice and Warsaw. All these city destinations are on sale now and fares start from an amazing £1!

We don't want you to think that we've just got Willie and his chums at BA in our sights though, we aim to bring low fares to those disgruntled passengers being ripped off every day by all the "flag carriers" such as Alitalia, Air France, KLM, Iberia and Lufthansa and be THE airline for low cost travel from Manchester.

The low cost revolution at Manchester has only just started, today marks the beginning of the end for high fares to European cities and is leading the way - there are many more destinations to come, so keep visiting!
