Momondo analysis reveals price savings of midweek travel
A travel search site has found that Tuesday is the cheapest day of the week to fly.
Using its new ‘Flight Insight’ tool, UK-based Momondo analysed flights on 40 key routes, comparing them across different days of the week.And the result was that Tuesday was found to be the cheapest day to travel. As one might expect, flights departing on Monday to Thursday were generally cheaper than those leaving on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with weekend flights costing up to 46% more than midweek.
Momondo noted that this was a “uniform trend” across all routes, both domestic and international, and covering a range of distances and flight times. For 58% of routes analysed, Tuesday was the cheapest day of departure, followed by Wednesday (28%). For the remaining 14% of routes, it was cheapest to depart on a Monday or Thursday.
