This year has been an amazing one when it comes to inexpensive flights, and this summer will be no different, says Condé Nast Traveler, which revealed the day that will be the cheapest to fly this summer in a recent report.
"Summer 2017 is shaping up to be slightly less expensive on average than what we saw in airfare pricing last year at this time,” CheapAir CEO, Jeff Klee, told Condé Nast Traveler. “[It] is a nice change for consumers accustomed to ever-increasing prices." But, one day is cheaper than the rest: June 6. "The data clearly shows the best value for summer travel can be found the first half of June,” added Klee. In contrast, Sunday, July 9 is the most expensive travel day of the entire summer.”
If you can’t jet out of town on the 6th, there’s still other options throughout the summer that won’t break the bank. August 22 is the cheapest day to fly that month and September 12 is the least expensive day for air travel in September. “August and September are better months for travel than July in general,” Klee says. “August airfares are, on average, about 7 percent less expensive than July. You can really save money by avoiding July travel."
