Airfares down as travel season set to take off

PHOENIX — A week away from the unofficial start of summer and one of the heaviest travel holidays of the year, a travel expert said it’s not too late to find a getaway deal.

Courtney Scott, with online agency Travelocity, said the average airfare on domestic flights is $341, down 2 percent from last year.

“Book a vacation package,” Scott said. “That’s the easiest way to save. Also look at the social media and mobile apps and you’ll frequently see last-minute deals pop up.”

Scott said New York City tops the list of Memorial weekend holiday hot spots, with Denver, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and San Francisco rounding out the top five.
