Huffington Post just posted a new article on an airline trend that has domestic airfare prices dropping. As a new airline enters a domestic flight route, those tickets can decrease by almost 50 percent.
Also, through sites like Student Universe, airlines offer student discounts and extras like cheaper tickets and the flexibility to change flights at dates closer to departure. Websites like this also tend to offer package deals that include hotels or train tickets to students.
FareCompare also offers students a way to compare flights and times, in order to get the best deal possible.
