Flying to New York from Australia

Customs America

Flying to New York from Australia doesn’t have to be very expensive. If you book on time and avoid travelling during busier months then you can find return tickets from around A$1,500. I recommend trying and book at least 4-6 months in advance. If not, at least 6 weeks before you leave. Flexibility is also a key to save money on flights. As a tip, it’s usually cheaper to fly on Monday rather than Sunday, Thursday rather than Friday, early morning, and midweek. The average flight time from Sydney to New York is around 20 hours plus stopover. However, sometimes other factors such as wind and weather conditions could make the flight longer.

New York doesn’t necessarily have a ‘high season’ as such, but the holiday season including Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve (late November and all of December) are certainly a lot busier. January and February could be considered the ‘low season’ as New York is a little less crowded due to the freezing temperatures. March and October are the best months to book considering the price and the temperatures in New York.

Eric’s Tip: “I always try and book my flight as early as possible. With booking sites such as Expedia it saves you time because you can book only the flight or flight and accommodation all on one site. Also if you want to fly with a specific airline to gain or use mileage, it’s good to check the airline sites because they might have campaigns.”
