In the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic in Spring 2020, roundtrip airfare dropped around $60 with lower travel demand. Similar to past years, we saw price increase into the summer, fall during the autumn shoulder season, and rise again into the holidays.17 March 2021

The strongest increase will probably happen in late spring and early summer 2021, once the vaccine is more widespread.17 March 2021
