Flight deal statistics & insights

Yelmair is a website where flight ticket deals are posted. Members are able to set alerts for their favorite routes, which will be then monitored. Ticket deals are curated by humans and this statistics page is not representative of all ticket prices world wide. However, it does give an insight of what Yelmair has found since starting posting deals, in November 2021.

Ticket deals on this website are currently mainly originating in Western-Europe (specificly Amsterdam) because most members come from this country. Most deals are intercontinental.

In total, there are 1886 deals found on 661 routes from 67 cities to 278 destinations. This page represents only roundtrip tickets in economy class to get the best data.

*This table shows how many months in advance of travel the deal was posted. The percentages don't need to add up to an even hundred because deals can have multiple travel months. The percentage shows how many of the deals had availability x months from posting. Also: tickets are released for booking around eleven months prior of travel, so this is the maximum period.

*Data for the number of deals per airline might be impacted by route alerts set by members. If the airline flies on routes set by members as alerts, more deals can be found. However, airlines still need to offer low prices in order to be posted on Yelmair.

*Non-direct flights are most often cheaper than direct flights. Why? Because most people prefer direct flights and are willing to pay more, so airlines that are unable to offer direct flights on certain routes need to compete with lower prices.

*Ticket prices are found on a certain day but are gone after a while. This table displays how long this period lasts for all deals. Keep in mind deals are in fact valid for longer periods of time because ticket prices are monitored, but can be available without being posted on Yelmair. In other words: the real world has more ticket deals than are posted here.

Modal value is 7 days (132 deals). Average number of days a deal was valid is 20.
