Low-Cost Flash: Flycheapo Amps It Up

We love Flycheapo for its regular digest of new low-cost flight routes across Europe. The site is a low-cost airline fan’s dream. It posts new route information and never lets the disappearance of this or that low-cost carrier go without comment.

Yesterday, Flycheapo broke more stories than we’ve ever seen them handle in a single day. Among the trove: new summer routes for Iceland Express, MyAir, and Thomsonfly; the re-establishment of a Stansted-Charleroi route by Ryanair, and new routes for Monarch (Manchester-Murcia) and centralwings (Poznan-Rhodes).

Our only additional wish is that Flycheapo would provide a touch more analysis with the raw route information.
