What are hybrid airlines?
To put it simply, hybrid airlines are carriers that operate with a low-cost business model but put an emphasis on offering a high standard of service. A true hybrid airline will offer services similar or equivalent to a standard or legacy airline, while keeping prices competetive to low-cost carriers.
Are hybrid airlines the same as low-cost carriers?
As the term 'hybrid airline' is an unofficial term, technically, hybrid airlines are low-cost carriers. However, hybrid airlines offer a better standard of service compared to other low-cost carriers.
Where can I buy flights on a hybrid airline?

Are flights from hybrid airlines cheaper?
It depends what you're comparing it to. Flights from hybrid airlines are often cheaper than those of standard and legacy carriers. On the flip side, compared to an ultra-low-cost airline, it will be more expensive. This is because ultra-low-cost carriers generally only offer the seat with little-to-no additional amenities and a low standard of service. However, generally speaking, hybrid airlines are considered to be fairly good value.
