Let us look at the below list of Top 10 cheapest airlines in The World in 2016 and 2017. In the age of today, the world is always on its feet. There is hardly anyone to be found anymore who has her or his entire life planned out and accounted for in the same suburban town when he or she was bor. You just have to keep moving. And it is not just for the sake of travelling or seeing the world. Nowadays, every single individual is accounted, every hippie under the forsaken flyover, every drifter sleeping on the pavement. The government even keeps track of people who are homeless. And to register oneself to the universal register and let yourself enjoy the privileges the government provides you for just existing, you just have to keep your behind moving. Besides, nobody wants to stagnate. And profiting immensely from this stage of non-stagnation is the transportation industry.
Even old faithful trains have become slower nowadays, as people need to go to their destinations as soon as possible. So men took to the skies. But one of the drawbacks of air transit is its ever high ticket prices. A one way travel to a different continent almost cost the same as the monthly income of an average middle class man. But there are solutions to that. To attract more customers whose main aim is to reach the destination fast and safe, several airlines provide discounts and price cuts. Listed below are the top 10 best yet cheapest airlines in the World.
