Liverpool booked their place in the Champions League final with a quite remarkable comeback against Barcelona last night, and by the looks of the flights this morning, their fans didn’t hang around before booking tickets.
The only direct flights available from anywhere in the UK on Friday 31st May, to return on Sunday 2nd June, were from Bristol and cost upwards of £1500. The other option is to travel to Edinburgh and take a £1600 flight on the same day.
The only options available if you want to fly on Friday 31st May and return on Sunday 2nd June are indirect flights. The best option we could find was a seven hour outward journey via Prague, getting you into Madrid just before midnight on the day before the final, and the return journey is at 8.45am on Sunday 2nd June, with a stop off at Venice. If Liverpool have won the Champions League final the evening before, it’s probably not worth booking a hotel on the Saturday night!
The only option here would be to fly from London at 6.20am on Saturday morning, or 7.20am. This would get you to Madrid with plenty of time before the Champions League final kicks-off on Saturday evening. The current price for this flight is just £82.
Flying home is the problem though, with the cheapest available flights on Sunday morning coming in at £468 to Edinburgh or £796 to Bristol.
With these flight prices, you’re sure to see a lot of Liverpool fans travelling by rail and road as they look to win their sixth European Cup.
