Alternative Airlines, the booking engine that allows customers to book flights from a massive range of carriers around the world, has now added an additional 40 low cost airlines to its growing list of carriers.

The latest additions to the Alternative Airlines website extends the offers available allowing users the chance to book from over 300 different carriers, including many local, regional and low cost airlines that do not have easy to book, online booking facilities anywhere else.

Amongst the new carriers are several large low cost regional airlines like Gol of Brazil which is the largest low cost airline in Brazil operating domestic flights throughout Brazil from its main hub at Sao Paulo, and Iceland Express which links Reykjavik with 15 cities in Europe.

Other notable additions are the inclusion of SmartWings which is a Czech low cost leisure airline based in Prague and SpiceJet, a low cost Indian carrier based in New Delhi, with a fleet of modern Boeing aircraft which operates flights to 14 major Indian cities.

Alternative Airlines is continually adding more and more carriers to the booking engine and aims to make its website a place where users can book flights for any airline in the world. With it's wealth of information on global carriers, the Alternative Airlines website has also become a favourite amongst airline enthusiasts, who can read up on the latest airlines to be launched.

A spokesman for Alternative Airlines commented:
"This is a real breakthrough. By adding low cost airlines to our availability search, we can now offer our customers even more choice of airlines. Passengers often want to book the cheapest possible fare, regardless of whether in-flight meals are provided or whether they can get seats allocated at check-in, but traditional travel agency systems show flight availability only for full service carriers. In a world where the importance of low cost airlines is growing rapidly, this isn’t good enough. Alternative Airlines is all about offering more choice of airlines and it was vital to bridge this technology gap."
