    Besides RyanAir, what other discount airlines fly out of London to other European cities?

    I am planning a Fall London trip and want to make side trip to Budapest to stock up you-want-what. The nearest city to Budapest that RyanAir serves is Graz, Austria. How much a hassle to go from Graz to Budapest?

    Easyjet flies from Gatwick and other airlines fly from Luton and Stansted. Try www.whichbudget.com for all the combinations and permutations.

    EasyJet. That's it. I know there's another one in addition to RyanAir. Thanks.

    SkyEurope flies from London Stansted into Budapest directly. They are a Slovakian airline, and fly new 737s on the Budapest-Paris, Budapest-London, and Bratislava-Paris, Bratislava-London routes. If you book early enough, Skyeurope cost 25E for each leg of the trip. They're a no-frills airline, and sometimes have minor issues with delays, but are safe and clean.

    There are like 20 discount European airlines, the biggest of which are Easyjet and Ryanair, but there are quite a few others.

    As far as Graz, it's quite far from Budapest, at least 2 hours away by train.

    EasyJet has direct service between London & Budapest. Depends on departure date, the fare can be as low as 15 pounds.

    I am going to check SkyEurope. Thanks.

    Sky is decent. I fly them to Budapest semi frequently..

    Like Drizz said, no frills, notthing fancy...

    But they get you there for next to nothing.
