This Thursday – the cheapest time to book millions of seats? Includes Easter 2017
Easyjet’s prices are fluid and move based on demand for any particular flight. When they’re released, they’re usually priced cheaply, then this can change quickly depending on how many are booking. So if you can pounce when they’re launched, you’re often getting the very cheapest deal.
When does it launch the tickets?
They’re released in five tranches throughout the year. Easyjet’s prices are based on demand, so be ready to buy on the day it launches a new wave of tickets and you’re likely to get a good deal.
This Thursday (6 Oct 2016) tickets go on sale for travel from 26 Mar 2017 to 25 Jun 2017, including flights over Easter and May half-term. There’s no one release time – tickets are likely to go on sale in batches throughout the day, though previously many tickets have gone on sale very early.
Of course, Easyjet may break previous convention and Thursday’s price may not be cheapest. Yet in the past booking on seat-release day has worked well. Use common sense when you see the price though, and always do a flight comparison to see if other airlines can beat it.
