The idea: In a bar in Russia, two friends from the Charter Broking industry were having a chat about small airlines that fly to lesser-known regions. A few drinks in, they came to the realisation that no one was offering these airlines as alternative flight options online!
The AA team: By combining a team of fantastic minds, Alternative Airlines continued to develop its flight booking platform and offer excellent customer service.
100 airlines: Alternative Airlines celebrated the milestone of 100 airlines available on its website! But, even with airlines covering all parts of the world, there was still plenty more to do…
PayPal: With the introduction of PayPal on the website, customers were given a simple, safe and secure way to pay for their flights.
More payment methods: An influx of international payment methods was added to the website, including mobile payments and financing options.
A new platform with 500 airlines: Alternative Airlines launched its new and improved website, with a personalised booking experience and 500 airlines on offer.
A bigger office: After doubling the team in the space of a year, Alternative Airlines had no choice but to move into a bigger, shinier and more stylish office — right at the end of the runway at Gatwick Airport!
The world changed: COVID shocked the world and flights were grounded. But, Alternative Airlines adapted and made loads of improvements to its flight booking experience to meet the change in the way that people travel.
More choice: Today, Alternative Airlines offers a full ticketing service on over 650 airlines, alongside a choice of 160+ currencies to pay in and 25+ payment methods to pay with. This includes e-wallets, buy now pay later, long-term financing and cryptocurrencies.
