Why Take a Flight 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.

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.

Old plane hitch was noisy.

It was a Delta flight - really great service

Oct 18, 2018

The flight was delayed by an hour and a half which was a nuisance. The film choice is limited for such a long flight and the food, though tasty, was in very small portions.

great flight

Oct 17, 2018

My transfer could have been smoother ! Re checked my bag to the next flight with ease but I had to go through the TSA CHECK AGAIN an extra 35mins was wasted in my opinion, thus making it incredibly tight for time to catch my connecting flight best regards phil

All very good

Oct 17, 2018

Very helpful locating my laptop left in security check in tray

Oct 16, 2018

The second flight from Newark to Richmond had a really unfriendly cabin person. She didn't greet us and did not respond to my 'hi', we were not offered any beverages at all on the flight. Given that we had to wait for 40 minutes for the marshals to get us onto the gate, after an hour long flight in a packed cabin, this was not right.

Oct 16, 2018

My only disappointment was the quality of meal served on United Airline flight - the breakfast going to New York was inedible and dinner on flight home was only slightly better.

Oct 16, 2018

Flight was fine but not happy with confusing information online which meant I could not order a meal. Also, no checked baggage for an international flight? ! I probably won't fly United again - although it was not bad - because of that issue alone.
