How to find cheap Flights in 2022

Borders are open, travel is back and now you’re ready to book a trip, but flight prices are too expensive!

If you’re looking to book cheap flights in 2022 (including Business Class), you’re in luck because you can still find bargain flights. However, you need to be flexible and prepare for 3rd, 4th or even 7th choice.

Finding a cheap flight in 2022, is less about – ‘I’d like a cheap flight from A to B please,’ and more likely, ‘Can I get a seat on a plane that goes somewhere remotely close to where I’m hoping to get to?’

As always, the cheap travel rules apply – airlines offer flight sales when they have inventory to sell. With limited flight schedules operating in 2022 and many flights booked to capacity in peak periods, airlines have not needed to offer any flight sales because many flights are sold out.

However, as we move out of the peak summer travel period, into the shoulder season, there’s a higher chance of getting a good deal on a flight to Europe, the USA and Asia (as it opens up).

Singapore Airlines has just released a short-term sale for departures from Mid October 2022 – 25 March 2023 (book and pay before 23 June 2022) for flights from Australia, Singapore and beyond to Asia, UK, Europe and the USA plus the Maldives. Example Sale Fares with Singapore Airlines include:

  • Sydney to Londonfrom $1379 return per person including checked baggage, 1 transit each way, inflight meals/entertainment, travel on Airbus A350/Boeing 777. Book Now or Miss Out→
  • Business Class Sydney to London from $6123 return per person including 2 x checked baggage, 1 transit each way, gourmet inflight meals/entertainment, travel on Airbus A350/Boeing 777 – Book Now or Miss Out →

  • Singapore to Los Angeles – from $1293 return per person including airport taxes, checked baggage, direct flight, inflight meals/entertainment, travel on Boeing 777 – Book Now or Miss Out →

There are cheaper flights available to book, but many travellers love the service, entertainment and modernised cabins of Singapore Airlines, and are happy to pay a little more for comfort, even in economy.

The cheapest flights available to book in 2022 are with Asian airlines, including:

Of course, the budget airlines like Scoot, Jetstar and Cebu Pacific will always have cheap flights and many are back in operation post pandemic.

Don’t expect the same prices as 2019, which was the cheapest year to book flights in history (based on my experience and knowledge). There are still many airlines (including most of the Chinese carriers like Air China, China Southern, China Eastern and Xiamen Air) that are yet to make any great comeback and likewise, Virgin Australia is yet to rebuild their former international network.

For cheap flights to return in 2022, the travel industry needs more planes in the sky (some aircraft are still in storage or were decommissioned during the pandemic), more competition from unaffiliated airlines and the remaining borders to open up.

If you’re after Business Class, often the more stops, the better the price. So look for European airlines like Lufthansa, Swiss, Finnair or Middle Eastern airlines that don’t fly all the way to Australia such as Oman Air, Gulf Air or Royal Jordanian.

The Circle Pacific airfare or a Business Class Round the World can be a better option if flight prices are too high, as long as you have the time to explore more of the world.

Getting to South America is limited as Air New Zealand is not yet flying the route and your best priced option is generally via the USA.

Now is the time to start booking flights for either late 2022 or early 2023!

However, if you’re flexible, book in advance, and are happy for a seat on a plane to somewhere, then you’re more likely to book a cheap flight in 2022 and beyond.
