So where are the cheapest flights going to be?
Hipmunk found so far in 2018, international flights were up slightly from the same period last year, but certain cities were seeing big price drops. Singapore, for example, has welcomed new routes from LAX on United Airlines and is down 30% versus this time last year. Music haven Hamburg, Germany also saw prices drop. As did Fukuoka, Japan, a city getting its first international flights in several years on Vanilla Air. (See if you can fly from there to Oshawa, Ontario for the best airport code combination of all time.)
On the domestic side, Soderlund said she found airfare to San Antonio to be down the most this year, with an 18% drop. That’s followed by Madison, Wisconsin; Syracuse, New York; and, surprisingly Austin, with flights 8% cheaper than in 2017.
