You’ve read our Birmingham guide and now more than ever you can’t wait to experience this colourful West Midlands city. So now let’s talk about affordable flights to Birmingham.
There are a variety of airlines offering Birmingham tickets departing from North America. Typically, the most affordable of these airlines are the charter air carriers. In the case of Birmingham, Air Transat Vacations is the only charter air carrier providing service to the city from Canada. Service with Air Transat Vacations is seasonal (summer months only), and does not depart every day of the week, so you may need to be flexible with your travel dates. But sometimes a really great flight deal can be a reason enough to modify your dates. If you cannot bend your travel dates, then a scheduled air carrier is the way to go. These airlines serve the Birmingham Airport year-round, and have almost daily flights.
