Cheaper Airfare Coming This Fall?

By  | 

Apparently the average cost per round-trip ticket is projected to drop by 5% in August according to this Fortune article by Christopher Elliott. According to the forecast by Hopper based on leisure travel, average prices will be at a 4 year low.

So how can you find these cheap flights?

  • AirfareWatchdog will send you a daily digest of all the sales and unadvertised airfare deals from your selected airport.
  • Google Flights’ calendar function lets you see the cheapest travel days at a glance as well as recommend cheaper airports.
  • Kayak’s Explore feature displays a map of the cheapest destinations from your selected airport, and if you don’t put in a time frame it will show you the cheapest ticket booked to that city in the last day and the dates of travel.

    I wonder if the shortage of Republic Airlines pilots and resulting schedule changes will impact this forecast for cheaper fares his fall.

    Interesting that you quote a Boarding Area blog article that borrowed heavily from hopper research, yet you do not point your readers to use the hopper iphone app or its amazing website to find deals.

    In my opinion, it is so easy to use this big data based site to find your own deals.
    You can either simply lurk using this page – http://www.hopper.com/deals/ or search deeper using the “flight feed” page – http://www.hopper.com/flights/feed/

    If you want to learn tricks on how to use it better, then visit travelcodex’s forum since we share information on how to use it to find great deals.
