Comparison Study - Flights from London to Gran Canaria

With Charter flights you are more restricted to popular holiday destinations. This is because it is cheaper for the charter companies to schedule whole aircraft to popular destinations, rather than use the scheduled airlines. For instance I wasn't able to find charter flights to either Barcelona or Sydney.

I did though carry out a study of charter flights to Las Palmas, Gran Canaria for a long weekend between 20th Nov to 23rd Nov 2009. Below are the results.

A couple of points to note are:

  • Not all sites could quote for departures on the 20th as not every airlines flies daily to each destination.
  • I have also included Ryanair flight costs for a comparison.


Website Price Dates
Ryanair 71.48 20-23rd
flightsdirect 131.69 20-23rd
Charterflights 132.50 21 – 23rd
Avro 135.00 21 – 23rd
Holidayhypermarket 139.50 20-23rd
