Skyscanner’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday Trends: Looking at Origin Airports

Skyscanner has compiled data based on 2017 trends to provide insight into how the 2018 holiday event may play out. This report is unique in that it includes trends specific to some of the top origin airports in the country.

Why is this a key insight to understand? National trend averages in aggregate do not mean much for the average traveler. The data is more accurate and relevant for travelers when they can view data for their origin airport.
