Title: Airline Ticket Purchases
Post by: ML on February 05, 2019, 09:54:56 AM
I don't think we have a 'sticky' for this topic.

Some good advice on websites and phone numbers to call to get best prices for plane tickets to FSU can be found scattered in many threads.

Let's put that info here in one thread.

Recently someone mentioned ASAPTickets.com
Their opening page does show some good prices; but apparently you must make all connections and purchases via phone.

What are other good contacts?

When I travel to Russia by Aerofloat Airline from US to Moscow, always bought my ticket from Brand New Travel Inc. http://brandnewtravel.com/ , their ticket price so far always about US$30 - US$50 less than the same from www.cheapoair.com

Wizz Air:

http://wizzair.com/en-gb#/

Unfortunately they do not fly from/to the US.  A greap cheap airline if you are already in Europe.

As already pointed out ..using aggregators depends on where you are flying to / from.

I start with skyscanner.net. (using incognito mode in Chrome) as these buggers who you are .

Skyscanner often picks out Wizzair, and one has to be care about which company Skyscanner finds cheapest as they might charge for services that are free.( seat allocation, for example). Often choosing the option to n9ok with the airline is cheaper.

For flights involving CIS nations SC sometimes gets good deals with aviasales.ru


Use the search by month option .as one can find really bargain days...(often Tuesdays)

Is your n9ok a typo or a code for something?
