Fares structure

In each of our travel classes we offer various ticket types, or booking classes, for travel within Europe and for intercontinental flights.

Our fares

We have subdivided our fares into various booking classes, each with differing conditions. These booking classes are indicated by alphabetical characters, such as ‘R’ or ‘Z’.

Conditions may vary per flight and per carrier. You will see the conditions applying to your flight during the various steps you take when booking online. Accepting the conditions is a required step to complete your booking.

If you do not take all flights or legs of this journey, or in the specified order, extra costs may be charged.
