CheapOair.com’s Data Finds a Rise in Bleisure Travel

CheapOair®, the online travel agency and a leading provider of affordable flights, has recently released data that demonstrates a marked rise in interest around Bleisure (Business Leisure) travel destinations for economically minded consumers wishing to extend their business trips into short getaways.

“The summer months are always a popular time for leisure travel, but as more and more millennials look for a quick weekend reprieve, the rise of Bleisure travel gives way to an increase in bookings as well,” said Tom Spagnola, CheapOair’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations.

Locations that may have previously been overlooked as summer travel destinations are gaining popularity as young professionals are placing a premium on practicality and discovering new location gems as a result.

“Business travelers are extending their work trips to enjoy a few days of leisure travel, allowing new locales to rise to the top which is wonderful for travelers looking for new experiences without the heavy price tag that comes with some more traditional vacations spots. Cities like Denver and Boston are being rediscovered as cultural hubs that have even more to offer during the hot weather months,” remarked Spagnola.

CheapOair.com’s Data Unveils 2019’s Superior Summer Vacation Spots

CheapOair®, the premier online travel agency and a leading provider of affordable flights, has announced its top summer vacation getaways for flights booked through Labor Day. The most-visited destinations of the summer include tourist hot spots Orlando, Las Vegas, and New York; with the Big Apple dropping down to third after previously clinching last year’s number one spot.

This season’s low-cost travel boom is a result of a recent increase in seat capacity which has allowed airlines to become more flexible in offering lower introductory fares. The change has driven a nearly 7% increase in passengers traveling within the United States as compared to last year between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

“While the usual suspects – New York, Orlando and Los Angeles– continue their reign on the shortlist, there is also an increased interest in other travel gems like Denver and Seattle. Now is the perfect time for travelers to jump on the bandwagon to discover new cities and take advantage of these amazing deals.” said Tom Spagnola, CheapOair’s Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations.
