I been finding getting flights a minefield when travelling abroad don't know what everyone else thinks.

Trying to get to Galway is like planning another Normandy landing first they have stopped the direct flights no to go to Knock can't find the Airport I want to go to in UK and fly.

Anyone found an easy website to look etc

Have you tried Skyscanner? I've never booked anything with it but in terms of searching it's a fairly straightforward site.

I think Galway airport was closed to commercial flights in late 2011 after government funding was cut and Aer Arran decided its capacity wasn't being used.

I flew there with Aer Arran in 2010 for Connemara but most got the train over from Dublin. You might have to do that.

That or hire a private jet to get you to Galway.

Knock or Shannon from Stansted?

Skyscanner is what I use too.

I look at the website of the destination airport to find out from which UK airports I can fly.

The University of Galway has a page about how to get there and that might be close to where you want to get to. nuigalway.ie Unless its location and naming policy is similar to that of Ryanair.

Got something to say?
