If you have a European trip in mind, now might be the time to plan it! Several European airlines have started discounting flight tickets as the peak summer travel season gives way to the traditionally slower months of more subdued bookings.
Travel demand to Europe exploded this summer, with the average flight coming in at $1,200, a 37% increase compared to both 2019 and 2022. But as the high demand for international travel is expected to cool, British Airways, EasyJet and Are Lingus all announced sales yesterday.
- British Airways launched an end-of-summer sale on short- and long-haul destinations for flights and package holidays.
- EasyJet is offering 20% off on more than 1.7 million seats for flights from mid-September to the end of March, and
- Are Lingus announced a September sale.
In addition, Norway’s Norse Atlantic Airways had round-trip flights between the US and London available for around $300, according to Bloomberg.
The airlines are not only concerned about the seasonal slump, but also that high prices and potential upcoming airline strikes could keep people from flying.
