LONDON, 2 February, 2012-- Fly.com™, the world’s easiest-to-use flight comparison website, today unveiled the five best and worst destinations for flight bargains this summer. The best flight prices this summer are for Miami, USA, and the worst are for Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt.
Aaron Ritoper, Fly.com's UK general manager said, “With the introduction of recent APD hikes and airline contraction, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find great flight deals. This study confirms that airline prices on average are higher this January than last, but there are still some bright spots, particularly Miami, Rio and Dubrovnik.”
Fly.com's study also revealed that booking early can mean huge savings for some destinations. Rio de Janeiro flights could go up by as much as £500 per person in the run-up to summer. Similarly, flights to Miami are currently averaging £450 per person. However, based on flight prices observed last year, they could hit £600-£700 in June or July.
Fly.com compiled its list of the best and worst destinations to fly to from the UK by comparing the results of flight searches throughout January 2012 to those of January 2011. Over a million searches were used in the study, and Fly.com compared the most popular summer destinations searched over this period.
