Australian flights searches & bookings data

February 12, 2021 Statistics & Trends No Comments Email Email

How are you? With Qantas increasing flexibility for travellers, allowing unlimited flight changes until at least January 2022, coupled with a number of airlines offering big sale promotions and flights for some popular domestic routes starting at as little as $99, I wanted to see if you were interested in traveller reaction and commentary on what this means for domestic travel recovery?

·       We’ve seen an uptick in domestic traveller demand on skyscanner.com.au with searches increasing 28% week on week

·       Domestic flight bookings (redirects) have also increased week on week by 36%*

Paul Whiteway, Senior Director for APAC at Skyscanner comments:

With international travel still off the cards for Australians, many travellers are looking to scratch that overseas travel itch and get away to explore their own backyard. As a result, we’ve seen domestic flights searches and bookings surge as Australian’s desire for travel turns into action. This demand coupled with attractive pricing and airlines extending flexible flying policies, are providing the perfect ingredients necessary to unlock travel and boost tourism, encouraging people to holiday locally.”

*Searches on skyscanner.com.au for economy, return flights in Australia for 2021. Searches and redirects volumes compared 29/01 – 04/02 with 22/01 – 28/01.
