My Favourite Budget Airlines

When it comes to transport I’ll often sacrifice comfort and time for a cheaper flight. However, after now having spent many years jetting around on budget airlines, I’m pleased to say that they’re actually not all terrible. In fact, in some countries I’ll often choose a budget airline over a full-service one because I know I’ll still receive great service, regardless of the price.

Here are some of my favorite budget airlines.

Cebu Pacific

Cebu Pacific is the only airline I’ll fly with if I’m in the Philippines. Given that the Philippines consists of over 7,000 islands, it’s far easier to fly between them than take a ferry. I’ll always choose to fly with Cebu Pacific because they make my flights so much fun.

On every flight I’ve taken with them they’ve entertained the passengers by playing a game. They’ll call out items for everyone to hold up, such as a camera or some money, and the first one to do so wins a prize. It definitely helps to pass the time and helps keep you entertained!

Air Asia

With an extreme fear of flying, I love flying on airlines that I know have a 100% safety record. Air Asia is one of these airlines.

Whenever I’m traveling in Southeast Asia, I’ll always be flying with AirAsia, even if they’re charging a little more than their competitors. They fly to pretty much anywhere you’d want to visit in the region, occasionally cost less than the 24 hour overland alternative and have one of the best inflight magazines I’ve ever read.

EasyJet

Europe is one of the cheapest continents to fly around in thanks to the abundance of budget airlines. However, I’ll always choose EasyJet if I have a choice.

The staff are friendly, the planes are clean and they don’t have a ridiculous amount of rules and regulations designed to trick you into paying more money (I’m looking at you, Ryanair).

Which is your favorite budget airline?
