Booking flights for rendesvous

If I want a girlie weekend somewhere in Europe but she is flying from the UK and I from here, is there a simple way I can browse flights that are as closely synchronised as possible? In other words so that we get to the same place at a similar time but from different origin airports. Having trouble orchestrating this! (it's something I want to arrange so not just asking her to sort herself out!)

Well, you can always select flights based on their arrival time. Most websites that I use have that option.

You're right ............ there's no 's' in the middle of the word rendezvous - enuff zed.

Re: Booking flights for rendevous

If you know the airport you will both be meeting at, then look for flight arrivals at that airport on the day of the week you will be arriving, also best if you choose the right time.

e.g. flight arrivals now Barcelona

http://www.barcelona-airport.com/eng/arrivals.php

there is a option there for the earlier times of the same day

Best you do it on the day you intend to travel, i.e. if a Friday, do it on a Friday or if a Saturday do it on Saturday.

Be aware some airports have more than 1 terminal, when meeting up.

For return, Flight Departures (with the name of the airport)

Remember to both have mobiles charged, so you can either send each other sms in case of flight delays, or at the gate to say flight leaving on time

If you're an iPad user, then 'Airport Zoom' app. could be useful.
