Liverpool fans looking for Champions League flights could be charged over £600

Liverpool fans looking for flights to watch the Champions League final in Paris could be forced to pay £600 for the privilege.

Reds supporters have already started looking at how to get to the French capital for their blockbuster clash with Real Madrid later this month – but they might be wishing they hadn't bothered. Eurostar trains between London and Paris have almost sold out, leaving fans who don't want to drive facing the expensive option of flying to Paris.

As it stands, there are only two flights from Liverpool John Lennon airport to Paris Charles de Gaulle that arrive in time for kick-off on Saturday, May 28.

The first of these sets off on Friday morning and costs £382.99 at the time of writing. The second departs at 11:35am on the morning of the game, costs £373 and arrives into Charles de Gaulle at 2:05pm, leaving only a small window until kick-off.

Alternative flights are available from Liverpool to Paris Beauvais, a smaller airport around one hour from Stade de France, but these also cost between £122 and £177 at the time of writing.

As for the return journey, there is only one flight leaving Paris for Liverpool on the Sunday morning, departing at 10am and costing an eye-watering £471.

It means Liverpool fans who want to fly to the final will face paying out almost £600 in total, regardless of which route they take. And it's not much better for those who want to train it to the Madrid tie either.

Some tickets remain on sale for the Eurostar at 5.59am on Friday, 37 hours before the match, at a cost of £195. Reds fans would incur further expenses just getting to London for that time.
