Pleasure Surfcamp recommends the following websites to hunt the low cost flights no matter how big the airline is.
- Kayak’s website (kayak.com/explore) is perfect for searching various airline flights at the same time.
- Skyscanner (skyscanner.net) you don’t need to enter specific dates or destinations, so this makes it a very interesting place to find good fares if you don’t have a fixed date or you don’t mind flying from a neighboring city.
- Momondo (momondo.com) is also a respectable option when searching for international routes. This site provides all the possible airlines, even the smallest ones.
Some major companies serving cheap flights that arrive to Kuala Namu Airport (Meden) are Citylinks, Firefly, Garuda Indonesia, Jetstar Asia, Lion Air, Susi Air and Wings. In the Nias Island Surfcamp we advise to check directly the airlines websites, since most of them reserve special fares only available on their own sites.
