August Travel News: Airfare Drop

In June we told you about Hopper, an app that combs through massive quantities of price and flight data to predict the best times to buy plane tickets. Hopper’s Consumer Airfare Index (which can be found here (hopper.com/research) each month, predicts that this August—a month of bargain fares generally—travelers will have access to particularly good deals, with round-trip domestic airfares averaging $248. The savings aren’t distributed evenly across the country, but Hopper’s Index gets into the nitty-gritty, with state-by-state, airport-by-airport breakdowns, and a fantastic interactive map that allows for lightning-fast surveys of airfares originating from your home airport.
