So, I'm travelling to Barcelona from Helsinki and back.

As my financial situation is really bad, I'd need as cheap flights as possible. Have you got any tips on low-fare airlines? PLEASE HELP THEN!

Criterias:
(Adult fares)
Departure from Helsinki on Wednesday the 27th morning, so that arrival to Barcelona is before ~1 p.m. the same day. Flight change is OK, so long as I don't have to wait on the airport more than one ~2.5 hours, and not less than ~50 minutes.

Return from Barcelona on Friday the 29th evening, not earlier than ~6 p.m. and not later than about midnight. Again, flight change is OK so long as wait time is under ~2.5h and longer than ~50 minutes.

No food needed on any of the flights.

AND THE MOST IMPORTANT THING!!!

THE COST MUST BE UNDER "550!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I apologize for spelling mistakes and not being very polite in this post, but I'm DESPERATE!

So if you can help, PLEASE DO!


Thank you forever!

You might be able to do this via the UK but having probs with times, you could do the likes of SAS to Londoon Stansted then Easy Jet or Ryan Air to Barcelona ( beware though the airport could be up to 20 miles from city)

but they should make your budget if you can find a flight to suit, also see if you can go via East Midlands, Birmingham or Luton..

sometimes it pays to get singles, and buy them at other end...we used to fly out from UK to service an aircraft in Holland and it was cheaper to buy a day return from Holland and use the return so to speak as the outbound and the inbound as the return if that makes sense. Was more expensive to buy in UK than Holland for same flight

REMEMBER TO ALLOW FOR BOOKING IN TIME

Remember that the security checks can be very tough, I've heard lap-tops and liquids are no-nos as hand luggage. Don't take weapons or explosives either.

Brwester Pilot, chatting to a friend at work today who works for BMI he suggests possibly the cheaper route for you is to go Via Amsterdam
