British Airways' fares might seem more expensive than those of the low-cost airlines, but if you take into account all extras and travel expenses, it can work out cheaper than flying first to Málaga and then travelling on to Granada (see example fare comparison below). Also, there is the time saving with British Airways.

The fare from central London to the airport is 3 or 4 euros, while travelling to Gatwick Airport costs 23 euros (with the Gatwick Express), so you save around 20 euros.

Which is Cheaper to Granada, British Airways or Ryanair?

Let’s compare fares to see which would be cheaper: to fly from London to Málaga with Ryanair, and then from Málaga to Granada by coach, or to fly directly from London to Granada with British Airways?

Ryanair fares vary between 47 and 209 euros (without extras), and British Airways between 97 and 146 euros. The Ryanair fare does not include luggage fees (35 euros extra), whereas luggage fees are included in the British Airways fares.

We have selected the cheapest Ryanair and British Airways fares we have found in July/August 2013 and we will check in one item of luggage.

Flying with Ryanair, London (Stansted Airport)–Málaga
sky view of london city airport Outbound flight 57.99 euros, return 47.99 euros (with taxes and fees).

Checking in one suitcase of 20kg (with British Airways you can check in up to 23kg) will cost 70 euros for the round trip.

We did not select priority boarding, travel insurance, reserved seat, SMS notification, etc.

Total outbound fare with luggage: 92.99 euros, total inbound fare 82.99 euros. Total return fare: 175.98 euros.

This is the lowest possible fare. If we were to reserve seats to match the service offered by British Airways, it would come to 10x2 = 20 euros more. Total: about 196 euros.

Flying with British Airways, London–Granada (London City Airport)
Departure from London City Airport, arriving at Granada Airport.

sky view of london city airport Outbound flight 97 euros, inbound flight 97 euros. Total: 194 euros (with fees, taxes and luggage of 23 kg).

The British Airways total return fare is 2 euros cheaper than Ryanair's.

Other Travel Expenses
Now we need to add other transport expenses: the rail fare (Tube/DLR) to London City Airport, and the bus fare from Málaga to Granada.

With British Airways: from a Tube station to London City Airport costs 3.50 euros and the bus from Granada Airport to Granada city centre costs 3 euros. Total: 7.50 euros.

If we fly with Ryanair, we would need to take a bus from Victoria Coach Station in central London to Stansted Airport, costing 16 euros (return fare), and a bus from Málaga Airport to Granada which would cost 21 euros (return fare). Total: 37 euros.

Total costs taking into account all travel expenses: British Airways - 201.50 euros. Ryanair - 233 euros.

With British Airways we can save 31.50 euros. If we did not choose priority boarding with Ryanair we would pay 20 euros less, but it is still 11.50 euros more expensive than with British Airways. If we do not check in any luggage (we only 'took' hand luggage up to 10kg), it would be 18.50 euros cheaper to fly with Ryanair.

Furthermore, we have to consider the time it takes to complete the whole journey, from Victoria Coach Station in London to Granada Bus Station, where Ryanair takes about 3 hours longer.

This is just an example, using the cheapest fares we have found for July and August. Prices vary a lot and you have to check and decide for yourselves whether to opt for a particular airline, considering quality of service and all possible expenses for your date of travel.

About time. O'Leary was not serving the public but screwing the Granada authorites and businesses. I hope the new servce is a success and stays. Granada airport is a very nice way to come to Spain, small and manageable (Mike).

Great. Flying monthy to and from Malaga to UK and onward bus to Granada this last 4 years has been ghastly. I love Granada airport and the ease of my monthly commutes being to Granada again is heaven-sent! (Mike).
