Use Skyscanner’s Tools to Search Smarter for Flights from RDU
If your travel dates are flexible, you’re in luck--Skyscanner was designed to find and compare millions of flights in seconds to find the absolute lowest prices over a few days, a week, a month, or even an entire year. Just choose “Entire Month” when filling in your travel dates, or if you want to search over the course of an entire year, select “Cheapest Month”.
Another great tool to use is our “Everywhere” search. The Everywhere search allows you to search for the best deals offered from your departure city, and can be displayed in a convenient map view. If you don’t care where you’re going, as long as it’s cheap--or, if you need inspiration for new, exciting and affordable destinations from your departure city, the Everywhere search is for you.
For flyers with less flexibility in their schedules and with set destinations, price alerts are a convenient way to keep track of flight fares. Sign up for price alerts and Skyscanner can send you updates on flights you’re interested in, letting you know exactly when it’s the best (and worst) times to book.
Nonstop, Connecting, and Direct Flights from RDU
There are 47 nonstop flights from Raleigh-Durham International Airport to cities throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, and even Europe. While nonstop flights are certainly faster and more convenient, travelers searching for low fares should also be aware of cheaper direct flights from RDU, or flights with connections--which can be much cheaper than nonstop.
A direct flight, which is often confused with a nonstop flight, is a flight with a short stop in a different city. In contrast with a connecting flight (and layover), passengers on direct flights do not de-board the plane unless they’re crossing international borders and are required to pass through customs. A direct flight stops to pick up or drop off passengers, somewhat like a transit bus, and will be longer in duration than a nonstop flight, but shorter than a flight with a connection. Flights with connecting flights are always flown by at least two different airplanes and one layover.
Skyscanner searches all three flight types--nonstop, direct and connecting flights--to bring you the best possible price it can find for your travel dates. From there, it’s up to your preferences to decide whether the extra stop is worth it for the price, or if nonstop is the better option. Travelers can also filter their searches to include or exclude direct or connecting flights from their search.
