Airfare to Seattle

Search for cheap airfare to Seattle and book a flight to Seattle

Seattle has in turns been famous for coffee, airplane building, computer geeks and grunge music. It is also a fantastic city to visit, with plenty to see and do and a great casual vibe. Of course, the most expensive part of any travel budget is the airfare, so if you are not lucky enough to be within driving distance you will first need to get a flight to Seattle.

The good news is that finding cheap airfare to Seattle is not always a challenge. Here are a few tips you can use to find a good deal on airfare to Seattle, and these tips will also work with other destinations, too.

  1. Visit Seattle during the low season – Even a city like Seattle has a high season and a low season in terms of tourism, and high season prices are always going to be higher than low season prices. Unless your visit to Seattle centers on outdoor activities which require sun, try planning your visit for the late Autumn or Winter in order to save money on airfare to Seattle. Of course, you will need to bring an umbrella with you, but that is a small concession when you are talking about saving money, right?
  2. Look into what airlines use Seattle as a hub – It is worth checking to see whether the airlines which fly in and out of Seattle-Tacoma International Airport all day long offer any specials or discounts, especially on flights which are not full. Alaska Airlines, Horizon Air and Northwest Airlines all have busy schedules at Sea-Tac, so those are the airlines to check. This does not always work, but it is worth a try.
  3. Schedule your flight to Seattle for midweek – Seattle’s airport is just like any other, where the weekends are busy travel days with pleasure travelers and Mondays are busy travel days with business travelers. To avoid both the higher prices associated with those dates and the long lines at security, try booking your flights on Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays.
