Cheapest Days of the Week to Fly

0 comments

It is universally agreed upon that airfares tend to be the lowest for flights on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Although this is not an exact science, numerous studies confirm this as do my 10 years of searching for airfare deals in both advertised and unadvertised sales.

In its 5th annual airfare study, CheapAir found that flights on Tuesdays are nearly $85 cheaper, on average, than the most expensive day of the week to fly, Sunday.

After Tuesday and Wednesday, the next cheapest days of the week to fly varies depending on the route. In general, Saturdays (for domestic travel), Mondays, and Thursdays follow as the next cheapest days to fly. And the most expensive days to fly are Sundays and Fridays. Mid-week flights are usually cheaper than weekend flights.

The outliers to these general rules tend to be on routes where there are budget carriers, such as Allegiant, Frontier, Norwegian, or Level, that have limited flight schedules. In cases where these airlines only fly a given route a few times per week, whichever days the budget carrier flies are usually the cheapest days to fly on any airline.
