1.the organisation responsible for transporting passengers or goods – in terms of flights, this will be the airline.
4.a major airport where an airline has many flights leaving to smaller destinations.
6.the distance between departure airports using an open-jaw ticket. The customer is responsible for organising the travel between the two points of departure. (2 Words)
7.the Association of British Travel Agents.
14.British Airports Authority.
16.an aircraft which is used by a specific group be it customers of a particular holiday company or an individual party.
17.the weight of the luggage the airline allows the traveller to check-in. Economy ticket holders are usually allowed 20kg whilst business and first class passengers able to take between 30-40kg depending on the airline. Hand luggage is fairly standard between the airlines: one piece per passenger and up to 8kg in weight though the dimensions of baggage that is allowed can vary between carriers. (2 Words)
19.International Air Transport Association
20.Short-haul flight – one that is brief in terms of distance travelled and time in the air. eg. UK to European destinations. This is the chosen market of most of the low-cost carriers – at least for the moment. (3 Words)
21.a ticket that allows the traveller to depart from a different airport to the one in which they landed. For example you could fly from London to Sydney but return to London from Perth.
22.Advance Purchase Excursion (fare). These are usually the cheapest tickets the passenger can get though they are restricted in number.
23.an overnight stay (or possibly longer) at a location en-route to your final destination. This is usually done to break up a very long journey eg. London to Sydney with a stopover in Hong Kong.
2.checked-in luggage which exceeds the weight of the Baggage allowance. If you are only just over then you might be lucky but be warned that payments on excess weight can be very expensive. (2 Words)
3.Estimated Time of Arrival
5.these are short-haul flights at bargain prices but with occasional drawbacks. Usually the flights are from secondary airports which could be miles from your ultimate destination. Food and drink is often not included in the price. Fares are usually non-flexible and can incur a hefty charge for changing travel plans. On the plus side, low-cost carriers continue to add to their already impressive list of destinations which can offer real savings for travellers. (3 Words)
8.the three digit code which is unique to a specific airport. eg. LHR for Heathrow or LGW for Gatwick. (2 Words)

11.a flight that goes directly from A to B without landing en-route. (3 Words)
12.this means the passenger will have to leave the plane at some stage during the journey – either so that it can refuel or possibly so that the traveller can change planes in order to complete the trip. (2 Words)

15.an identifiable leg or part of a journey. Usually defined by departure and arrival destinations.
