: A budget airline is one which offers cheap tickets and just the basics. There is no "first class" section, assigned seats, or meals. It's basically for people who don't want to spend a lot of money on air travel, or are on a budget. (Hence the name). The modifier "British" just means that the airline is based in England. There are budget airlines here in America as well as many other countries.
These airlines are commonly called "no frills" airlanes. They are common in Europe and America.
