Cheap flights to New York

One of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant cities in the world, New York makes a fantastic destination throughout the year.

When to book flights to New York

Thanks to the city’s reputation as a shopping mecca, the months leading up to the festive period are always busy and flights can be more expensive in November and December.

During the summer months, flights to New York can be busy with families taking advantage of the holidays to travel to the Big Apple. However, with temperatures in the city regularly reaching 30˚C, staying cool in July and August can be a challenge. If you want to spend your days walking around the city streets and taking in the sights, the mild spring and autumn months could be the perfect time plan your trip.

January and February are generally the quietest months in the Big Apple. Although they’re also pretty chilly – the average high at this time of year is just 5˚C – the lack of crowds can make it easier to hunt for great deals in your favourite malls and find tickets for shows and sports games.

How to find cheap flights to New York

Thanks to the large number of flights from London to New York that depart every day, finding cheap flights to the Big Apple is relatively easily.

In general, the more expensive times to fly are November and December and the summer months. However, if you search for flights on Expedia and are flexible with your dates, times and airlines, you’ll be able to find cheap flights to NYC throughout the year.

Once you’ve typed your details into the search bar, you’ll be shown a range of flight options. Use the filters on the left-hand side to narrow down your results by departure time, flight time and airline.

To give yourself the best chance of finding a great deal on flights to New York, select the ‘Nearby Airports’ box on the Expedia search page. This will allow you to see all available flights from airports in your local area to terminals in and around New York, making it even easier to grab yourself a bargain.
