What’s included?
Most of these fares include meals and a checked bag, except the non-stop flights from Heathrow with Virgin & BA. For these flights adding a bag direct with the airline will cost around £80-£100 return. Adding a bag whilst booking with one of the travel agencies on Skyscanner (for example TravelUp or TravelTrolley) will save you around £20.

Non-stop flights are noted above, all other flights have one connection in each direction.

Visas and Health
I always recommend checking the entry requirements and health advice before booking your flights so you don’t get any nasty surprises!

Sample booking on Momondo:

Prices and availability can change quickly, so if you can’t find the deal it means it has probably sold out. When you see a deal you’re happy with, book it fast!
