Get more with Group Tickets


If you are planning to travel with your family or a group of friends, consider buying a group ticket. This offer applies to groups of eight people or more and affords many privileges.

You can book your group ticket ahead of time, but only need to provide the passenger list seven days before departure. Changes can still be made up to two days before departure without any extra charge. What’s more, you can split the payment into parts as long as it is paid in full one month before departure.

Another advantage is flexibility. If your travel plans change, you can adjust the date and time of your flight. Each member of the group can check-in one piece of baggage. Groups of 20 passengers or more can request a free flight ticket for the group leader (only airport taxes must be paid).
