Easter flights are not just those which fly on Easter Sunday. They can be flights departing anytime over the Easter period, generally the two weeks surrounding the weekend. Spring break and Easter is one of the most popular times to travel before the summer break. During this time, there are often school breaks and national bank holidays, meaning a greater demand for flights.
Alternative Airlines has great airline ticket prices during the entire Easter period. The good news is that flight prices aren’t dramatically more extortionate over Easter.
You can use the search bar at the top of the page to search for cheap flights. With Easter just around the corner, Alternative Airlines is the best place to search for cheap Easter flights. We offer thousands of flights from over 600 airlines, assuring that you will find the best flight for you.
Is it cheaper to book your Easter flights last minute?
Sometimes it can be cheaper to book your flights last minute because an airline might sell seat tickets for a cheaper price if there is still availability on the plane. However, this is not guaranteed. Infact, sometimes airlines will raise the prices to make last-minute flights more expensive, reflecting the increase in demand during peak travel periods such as Easter and Christmas.
1. If you can be flexible, consider booking your flight at less popular travel times. Instead of departing on a weekend, for example, consider flying mid-week. Doing so could dramatically reduce costs!
2. Is it actually cheaper to book flights on a Tuesday? How far in advance should you book your Easter flights? To help you decide when the best time to book your flights is, check out our blog: The Cheapest Day to Buy Flights
3. Search for flights with a low-cost carrier. No matter where you are planning on heading, long-haul or short-haul, it's very likely that there will be a low-cost carrier option. Flying low-cost means services such as inflight meals, extra baggage allowance and priority boarding are not included in the price of the ticket, helping to reduce costs. Did you know, you can filter your search by airline when you book through Alternative Airlines?
