Through price comparison and booking analysts, CheapOair also found that it is becoming more affordable to travel to Greece. While Athens continues to be a summer hot spot with a bit of a higher cost in airfare, the destination is seeing a 4% price decrease compared to 2018, making it a highly attractive destination this year.
"Flying to Europe is becoming more affordable every year, which means it's also becoming increasingly popular," said Tom Spagnola, Senior Vice President of Supplier Relations at CheapOair. "Consumers should take advantage of these low costs to experience European cities they haven't been to before, but booking early is important as summer is the most popular travel season and costs will only increase from here."
By consistently monitoring travel trends, CheapOair's mission is to educate and aid consumers and travel professionals in both planning their travel accommodations and staying current on the most popular destinations.
