Where do we get cheap flights from UK & Irleand?

We were curious to see which airports from the UK and Ireland provide cheap flights to Lanzarote. Of course, this can only ever be a snapshot in time – we checked a random set of dates, and then looked at the lowest priced return flights for two people. Move it by a day, and the answers will be different.

We took this Snapshot when Thomas Cook was still flying, and of course they are no longer doing so, but it still serves a purpose to give you a snapshot.


We used specific dates and priced up a one week return flight for two adults, without any extras.

Here’s what we found:

Cheap flights

What can we learn from this?

  • The average cost is £240, or £120 per person
  • The difference between the most expensive and the least is £205
  • On the dates we selected, Scottish airports are more expensive than the average

Look at nearby options

Liverpool and Manchester are only 34 miles apart, and flying from Liverpool will save £109 on these dates.

With East Midlands versus Birmingham, you would save £131.

Think outside the box

On these dates, Glasgow is expensive, but how about this?

  • Fly from Glasgow to Luton – £100 return with Easyjet
  • Then fly from Luton to Lanzarote – £121 return with Easyjet
  • Total cost £221 – saving £105 versus a direct flight from Glasgow


As we said at the top, this is only a snapshot for specific dates, but it’s interesting to see the span of prices and also that the average price of a return cheap flight to Lanzarote for a passenger is £120. To put that into perspective, that’s less than the price of a return train ticket from London to Manchester, and is almost ten times the distance.

And when you consider that you can fly to Lanzarote and back for under £100 per person from three airports in the UK on the dates we selected – that’s amazing value for money!
