Great news for Singaporeans, flights to many Oceania destinations are cheaper than they were a year ago. The Skyscanner Singapore Travel Report looked at changes in the average ticket prices of flights to more than one hundred of Singaporeans’ most popular destinations*.

‘Price-drop’ destinations to look out for

Continent Winner: Oceania

Whilst the average flight prices to most of Singaporean’s favourite destinations have increased year-on-year, Oceania appears otherwise. The average flight prices to eleven Oceania destinations are cheaper than they were in 2016. In particular, the average ticket price of flights to Cairns is now 28% cheaper than it was last year and flights to Christchurch are 15% lower.

City Winner and Runner-up: Osaka and Shanghai

Asian destinations also made the ‘price drop’ list. The report found that the average price of flights to Osaka are 65% cheaper. In addition, flights to Shanghai are down 44% on last year’s prices. This is a good time to for Singaporeans to bag a bargain to these hot spots.
