Apologies for starting new thread if this has previously been covered but I know there is lots of talk re hidden costs etc etc. and how to make comparisons.
For info which some may find useful the breakdown for 1 return flight from Gatwick to Murcia in Sept with Monarch booked in July is as follows
Air Fare £50.98
Air Passenger duty £10.00
Fuel Supplement £ 16.00
Passenger service charge £12.30
Airport departure tax £ 3.10
Airport handling charge £ 1.55
Debit card fee £ 2.5
Total £ 96.43
NO bags or seats booked these would add £6.99 plus £5.00 each way
Have also booked Easy Jet for Oct/Nov as it worked out cheaper but regrettably they do not give breakdown on confirms.
Looked at Monarch flights for Jan/Feb advertised at £4.99 each but after charges works out to £52 pp return still pretty good.
I presume these adeed charges are not consistent between airlines as I m not sure how many are compulsory
It may be useful to compare other airlines breakdowns.
