Flights to These Cities Are About to Drop Big-Time in September

Insider Guides Budget Travel Airports + Flying
by Matthew Meltzer Aug 26, 2019

What’s a fall getaway without a little music? Like when all the leaves are brown and the sky is gray, there’s really only one song you can have on the stereo. Or if it starts raining on you during a November road trip and you don’t immediately put on Guns n’ Roses, you’re probably dead inside.

The point is every vacation needs a pertinent soundtrack, and this September you’ll have an easier time than ever finding songs to pair with your destination. How do we know? Because our BFFs at Skyscanner did what they do best and scanned millions of historical airfares to figure out which cities both in the US and abroad would see flight prices drop the most next month. And most of them are leaving us with songs stuck in our heads.

Here at home, you can annoy everyone on your remarkably cheap flight to Kansas City (down 8% to $274) by playing Fats Domino’s Kansas City Here I Come without the use of headphones. Better still, plan a trip to the other side of Missouri and send a link to this Broadway classic to your best traveling buddy, since flights to meet you in St. Louis will be down 4% to $328. You’ll know the way to San Jose is cheaper this month too, down 4% to $284. Or you can be there when the sun comes up on a sleepy little town down around San Antone, as flights to China Grove’s nearest airport will be 9% cheaper at $295. The rest of the domestic leaders…

  1. Honolulu, Hawaii — $550 (13%)
  2. San Antonio, Texas — $295 (9%)
  3. Kansas City, Missouri — $274 (8%)
  4. Kona, Hawaii — $391 (5%)
  5. Fort Lauderdale, Florida — $244 (5%)
  6. St. Louis, Missouri — $328 (4%)
  7. Sacramento, California — $327 (4%)
  8. Hartford, Connecticut — $300 (4%)
  9. San Jose, California — $284 (4%)
  10. Seattle, Washington — $289 (3%)

The musical associations around the world aren’t quite as obvious, but you’ll still be getting good use from the Yesterday soundtrack you downloaded when you go back to the USSR on a flight to Moscow that’s down 17% to $686. You can also saunter into Rick’s Café in Casablanca and ask Sam to play As Time Goes By again, assuming there is a Sam there and you’re not the hundredth person to ask that day. Flights there are down 15% to $840. No particular songs about Athens come to mind, but you can never really go wrong with an $806 flight (down 14%) and Yanni Live at the Acropolis. The rest of the best international deals…

  1. Sofia, Bulgaria — $694 (20%)
  2. Amman, Jordan — $869 (19%)
  3. Zagreb, Croatia — $683 (19%)
  4. Vienna, Austria — $755 (17%)
  5. Moscow, Russia — $686 (17%)
  6. Casablanca, Morocco — $840 (15%)
  7. Krakow, Poland — $756 (15%)
  8. Athens, Greece — $806 (14%)
  9. Kiev, Ukraine- – $802 (13%)
  10. Bucharest, Romania — $752 (13%)

Unlike literally every song we just mentioned that will be running through your mind for the next hour, none of this is guaranteed. So it might be best to check back with Skyscanner in September and see if these deals really hold true. Or put on your “Searching the Internet for Flight Deals” Spotify playlist and scour the web yourself, we won’t tell you what to do. Either way, this fall is shaping up to be full of magical, music-filled adventures. It’s up to you to find the cheapest one.
