Prices of Laudamotion tickets
Laudamotion pricing is very similar to Ryanair. Tickets for new flights to Stuttgart, which also open from February 1, sell from 10 euros one way. It is likely that similar or slightly higher prices will be for flights Kiev – Vienna.
And during sales Laudamotion sometimes sells tickets for € 1!
We hope to see such prices on flights from Ukraine.

Laudamotion tickets are sold on the Ryanair website, but the baggage rates are slightly different and similar to those that were in Ryanair before November 1.
