Flights to Innsbruck from the UK
It’s not a long flight to Innsbruck from the UK, but not all flights go directly. Some will stop over in places like Vienna or Frankfurt before hopping over to Innsbruck.
The following rough prices and routes were correct in May 2018.
Flights to Innsbruck from London
If you manage to get a direct flight to Innsbruck, it shouldn’t take more than two hours to get there. An economy ticket with an airline like Austrian Airlines or easyJet may set you back around £140 or more depending on how far ahead you book.
It’s generally wisest to book as far ahead as you can to get tickets as cheaply as possible. If you’re very lucky, then booking two or three days ahead of the flight may land you even cheaper tickets because some airlines drop their prices just before departure – but this really is a gamble!
Flights to Innsbruck from Manchester
Although you may have stopovers in Vienna or Munich, a flight from Manchester to Innsbruck isn’t that much more expensive than one from London. An economy ticket may set you back upwards of £180 from Manchester, for example.
A business-class ticket, however, could be as expensive as £440. For a flight as short as two hours, this may not be the most cost-effective way of getting to Innsbruck. But, given the luxurious nature of a business-class flight, there’s no harm in treating yourself for a little while before you get into the sweaty hurly-burly of a skiing holiday, right?
Cheap flights to Innsbruck
As mentioned, you can save a lot of money by booking your flight way ahead of the departure time – the further ahead the better. If you get in far enough ahead, you could be looking at a payment of no more than £60 with a budget airline.
However, they're the exception rather than the rule. Other airlines like Lufthansa or Austrian Airlines have relatively consistent prices throughout the year, fluctuating at around £140 or higher if you get a return flight with them. You can occasionally get a multi-leg flight that involves more than one airline and if one leg uses a budget airline, you may get a ticket at about £110.
So, if you want a really cheap flight, it’s worth comparing the prices offered by budget airlines. Using a budget airline may mean extra fees elsewhere, and a sacrifice on comfort, which could make for a less than stellar flight.
