Peak season:

The Big Apple is a go-to destination year-round, but the peak season for travellers to arrive on flights to New York City are the summer months (May to September), Thanksgiving (November) and Christmas / New Year’s. For first time visitors there are endless places to tick off in the city that never sleeps so be prepared for a bucket list as long as your arm. From iconic architecture such as the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty, to must-see hang outs like Central Park and Times Square, New York is evocative and inspiring, and just a little bit familiar since it’s the location of so many movies and TV shows. It’s also an art lover’s paradise with many of the finest galleries and museums in the world and if you love shopping, then 5th Avenue’s plethora of designer brands will do some serious damage to your credit card. There’s nowhere else like it and if you book far enough in advance you’ll always be able to find cheap flights to New York City.

Off Season:

Winters (January to March) are cold and blustery, and often experience dumps of snow but, with the exception of Christmas / New Year’s, this is when you’ll pick up the cheapest flights to New York City. Besides, Central Park after a fresh snowfall is exceptionally beautiful and queues for attractions are non-existent.

When is the best time to book a flight to New York?

Each season has something to offer travellers, so there’s never a bad time to book a flight to New York City.

The shoulder seasons of spring and autumn offer more comfortable weather for sightseeing with temperatures in the mid-teens to low 20Cs and the city buzzes with markets and theatre performances. The autumn colour is particularly beautiful in October. The early winter months before the Christmas season, and late January / February, are good times to find cheap flights to New York and accommodation deals for anyone wanting to save their cash for shopping and Broadway shows.
