A low cost carrier is an airline
that offers generally low fares in exchange for eliminating
many traditional passenger services. The concept originated
in the United States before spreading to Europe in the
early 1990s and subsequently to much of the rest of the
world. The term originated within the airline industry
referring to airlines with a lower operating cost structure
than their competitors. Through popular media the term
has since come to define any carrier with low ticket prices
and limited services regardless of their operating costs.
To facilitate low cost travel all over the world, this
website presents a list of the major low cost airlines
organized by home country. This list is incomplete, so
