Budget Airlines that Fly to France


cheap flights to france

You know what the best thing is about France being the most visited country on the planet? It’s so freaking easy to get here. And just like those enormous family packs of cereal or toilet paper at your local big box store, so goes the “bulk product” mentality of airline service into and out of France – there’s a lot of it, and you can get it for cheap.

Normally on this site we highlight cheap flights to France by city, region or even specific airport – but with all the low-cost airlines popping up everywhere, it can be hard to keep track of which budget airlines fly to France. And for those of you who are planning to come to other parts of France besides Paris, well, we’ve got that information too.

We’ve put together a comprehensive list of all the budget airlines that fly to France – and helpful local links as well. As always, if you need any help planning your trip and you can’t find info here on WhyGo France, just give me a holler on Twitter @WhyGoFrance and I’ll be happy to steer you in the right direction.

There are a few things to note in looking at this list:

  1. These flights can come from pretty much anywhere in Europe, but the vast majority originate in the UK. So figure out where you want to go, and work backwards to see where you need to come from to get there. While this may seem like a hassle, remember that if you’re not finding cheap transatlantic flights to France but you found a sick deal to London, you can use these low-airlines to get you the rest of the way.
  2. Some of these routes are seasonal, meaning they run only in the summer or run maybe once a week in the off months. Some flexibility may be required.
  3. Also regarding flexibility – the reason why many of these airlines are able to exist is because they either fly out of smaller airports, or they fly at non-peak hours, or a combination of both. So make sure their schedule fits with yours!
  4. If you’ve never heard of these kinds of airlines, don’t worry – they’re totally legit. However they are utterly devoid of the creature comforts of a regular airline – there’s no seat assignment, for example, and you’ll have to pay for everything from your luggage to a drink on the plane. Make sure the costs don’t add up. Watch this hilarious video about low-cost flights gone horribly wrong.
  5. If you already have your travel plans arranged to one of the cities below and want to do a fun weekend trip to someplace surprising, it’s worth taking a look at where you can fly to from these cities. It’s not unheard of for even a budget traveler to feel like a jet-setter by scoring cheap tickets to, say, the southern coast of Spain for a weekend. Using these low-cost airlines to spice up a trip is frankly one of my favorite things to suggest to people – and I do it myself as often as I can.
  6. It should be noted that if you’re booking a transatlantic flight to France and don’t want to go this way, pretty much all major carriers will get you to the closest major city in France to your destination, and you can drive or train it from there.
