The Biggest Airline Sales You Can Take Advantage of Right Now

You'd better act fast to get these flight deals.

The new year is a time for big celebrations, and it turns out that airlines are eager to celebrate with you.

The start of the new year frequently is accompanied with plenty of flight deals, and 2024 is no exception. Airlines appear to be aware that we're heading into the coldest, darkest part of the year when many of us start to daydream of warmer and more exciting locales. To help us all travel more this year, several carriers have just launched big promos on their flights. Below are some of the best ones we found, as well as the details on how to snag the deals.

We will continue to update this space if and when additional airlines announce sales for the start of the new year. Happy traveling!

Aer Lingus

The Irish airline has some good deals in store for you. Now and through January 18, the carrier is having a major sale on its flights between the US and Ireland, and roundtrip tickets start from as low as $342 for travel between February 1, 2024 and March 31, 2024. If you plan on traveling between April 1 and May 31 of this year, instead, prices are a little higher starting at $499 roundtrip, but still a great deal nonetheless!

To give you a few examples, in March you can fly from New York to Dublin and back for as low as $341.33, or you could go from Philadelphia to Dublin starting at $417.30.
