I am looking for a database that contains all the airline companies alongside the alliances that they belong to, and if they are low-cost or not.

So far I found this Airport, airline and route data but it doesn't seem to give the information on whether the compagnies are low cost and to which alliance they belong to.

Try this query on Wikidata:

SELECT DISTINCT ?aLabel ?is_lowcost ?affiliateLabel ?iata where {
  ?a wdt:P31/wdt:P279* wd:Q1875615 .
  BIND ((EXISTS {?a wdt:P31 wd:Q190915 }) AS ?is_lowcost )
  OPTIONAL {?a wdt:P749 ?parent}
  OPTIONAL {?a wdt:P361 ?whole}
  OPTIONAL {?a wdt:P127 ?owner}
  OPTIONAL {?a wdt:P114 ?alliance}
  OPTIONAL {?a wdt:P229 ?iata}
  BIND ( COALESCE(?alliance, ?parent, ?parent, ?owner) AS ?affiliate)
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "en" . }
  } ORDER BY DESC(?is_lowcost)

The values in the affiliateLabel column are coalesced from the values of these properties:

Try this query, if you want to get the values of these properties separated.

As to low-coster status, the data is obviously incomplete. For instanse, wd:Q18398469 is definitely a low-coster.
