October Flight prices Are the Cheapest They’ve Been in 6 Years

Travelers will find October flight prices as low as $211 roundtrip if they’re flying within the U.S., according to a report on Tuesday from flight tracker Hopper. That is a 3.1-percent decrease from the same time period last year. October Flight prices Are the Cheapest

“October is typically a low month for airfare, given the lower demand for travel in the period between summer and the end of year holidays,” Berg, Hopper economist, said, adding, “Increased competition in the airline industry has driven airlines to expand their fleets and drop prices in an effort to capture a larger piece of the growing demand for travel.

Berg added that the price of jet fuel, which is lower than last year’s prices, makes it a “lower cost environment” for the airline industry.

October also happens to be one of the best times to travel with dazzling fall foliage, mild weather, and fewer crowds than peak summer or holiday periods. If you’re still debating where to go, Hopper’s Consumer Airfare Index predicts that prices to destinations like Austin, Texas and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, will continue to drop more than 30 percent.
