Tom Spagnola, global SVP of supplier relations for CheapOair, told POPSUGAR why airline prices tend to dip in the late Summer and early Fall.
"The end of Summer also marks the end of peak travel season, with travel becoming less frequent due to the new school year and many Americans returning to a regular work schedule. Because of this, airlines will begin to lower fares to maintain a steady passenger volume until travel picks up again for the holiday season."
Spagnola explained that airfares began to drop at the end of August and will steadily start to rise again at the end of this month. Data from CheapOair found the following cities are seeing much lower airfare prices than during peak season:
Medellin, Colombia – a millennial travel hot spot famous for its vibrant culture, dining, and bustling nightlife. Average round-trip airfare in September and October: around $500
Portland, Oregon – a cultural mecca for art, gastronomy, and outdoor activities.
Average round-trip airfare in September and October: just over $300
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – this historical city has recently emerged as a cultural capital for young travelers. Average round-trip airfare in September and October: around $350
