Cheap Flight Day

Cheap Flight Day is a real attraction for beginner travelers and those who are just about to make traveling to other countries their hobby. Air travel is the fastest and most comfortable way to be in another state. But you have to pay for speed and convenience. Many are repelled by air travel precisely because of its cost.


Cheap Flight Day is scheduled for August 23, but there is an opinion that this holiday was not invented in the marketing department of one of the airlines. It was created by the air ticket market itself, and not by a brilliant marketer.

Randy Wolfson of Skyscanner says families with students are playing a major role in the trend towards lower airfare at the end of the summer. The summer travel period is coming to an end, people are shopping for the new school year to send schoolchildren to school, students are returning to their alma maters.

Many airlines aim to offer discounted tickets in the last week of summer and beyond. Airlines and aggregators advertise Cheap Flight Day, offer bonuses and gifts to increase sales. According to Skyscanner, booking domestic flights in August is 4% cheaper than the average price and 4% more expensive in June.

For international flights, the differences are more noticeable: booking in September is 6% cheaper than the average cost, in June it is 10% more expensive.

Interesting facts

How to celebrate

Remember, in reality, Cheap Flight Day lasts until the end of autumn: the fewer people who want to travel, the lower the prices.
