CheapOair Announces Top Spring Break Destinations for 2016

Data shows airfare costs are down 7% domestically and 9% internationally for season

 

NEW YORK, March 21, 2016: CheapOair, the first flights-focused hybrid travel agency, announced today the top ten international and domestic destinations consumers are traveling to for spring break, between March 1st and April 4th. This year, spring has proven to be an ideal time for travel, as airfares have significantly decreased for top destinations, with domestic prices averaging $302, a 7% decrease from last year, and international prices averaging $546, a 9% decrease from the same period last year.

 

“After analyzing our year-over-year data on bookings, our 2016 prediction of declining costs in airfare has proved true thus far.  Due to the low prices of oil and airline capacity growth, airfare prices have dropped significantly across the board,” said Tom Spagnola, CheapOair’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations.  “Our data shows that it is the perfect time for travelers to take advantage of these lower prices, for both domestic and international travel.”

 

Among this year’s top domestic destinations, Los Angeles is the most popular city, with a roundtrip price of $313, down 13% from last year.  Out of the top ten domestic destinations, those who may be looking to pay the lowest prices for their trip should consider Dallas-Fort Worth, with an average airfare cost of $251.  Of the top ten cities, San Juan, Puerto Rico has seen the largest decrease in airfare price, dropping 18% since last year.
