Getting to Madrid (by plane)

The companies that fly to Madrid, from the UK, can be split into the standard larger carriers like British Airways and the ‘no frills’ airlines, like Easy Jet. Let’s take a look at them:
British Airways and Iberia are the ones I usually fly with; the latter you need to book well in advance to get reasonable prices.
British Midland – I flew with them this summer but bought the ticket through Opodo, which worked out cheaper. Opodo is actually owned by the big European airlines.

I often find that flight bookers like Travelocity or Expedia offer better prices than the airlines themselves.

On occasion, I have travelled to Madrid via Brussels using Virgin Express. The other ‘no frills’ player, Easy Jet, are currently offering some very good offers for flights to Madrid. Easy Jet flies out of Luton and Gatwick to Madrid.

    Hi Matthew
    If I did have a brochure, I’d send one to you. However, feel free to to use whatever you want from site (I wouldn’t mind if you mentioned the web site, too). If you have any specific questions regarding Madrid, send them to me and I’ll see if I can answer them.

    I am trying to get from Split (Croatia) to Madrid in early July. Have you got any suggestions? Your advice would be greatly appreciate.
