It’s that time of year when it seems like every company under the sun is having some sort of sale. For travelers, this means you may be able to find a great Black Friday deal on a flight to somewhere new in 2022. While the best airfare deals are unpredictable and can happen at any time of the year, there are a few advertised Black Friday sales worth mentioning this year.

To help cut through the clutter, we’ll give a summary of some of the most relevant Black Friday flight deals along with our take on whether these sales are somewhat normal or are truly extraordinary. We’ll also provide a few examples of the best deals that fall within each sale.

Black Friday Flight Deals for 2021

Aer Lingus

The flag carrier of Ireland is discounting flights to the Emerald Isle and beyond with its Black Friday deals. Take up to $100 off roundtrip Economy tickets or $200 off roundtrip Business Class fares to Ireland and the rest of Europe from select cities in the Midwest and on the East Coast. And flights from West Coast cities Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle get $200 off Economy and $300 off Business Class.

The discount will be reflected in normal search results for travel dates between January 1 – May 31, 2021. Many routes reflect typical sale fares from Aer Lingus but you may find some great deals for a St. Patrick’s Day trip to Ireland. Some of the most notable fares include:

  • San Francisco to Dublin $386 roundtrip, nonstop
  • Boston to Shannon $403 roundtrip, nonstop
  • New York to Naples $476 roundtrip

Sale expires: Tuesday, November 30, at 6:59 pm ET

Air Canada

Save up to 20% on flights to Canada and other international destinations in South America, Asia, Australia, and “sun” destinations (Mexico, Caribbean, etc.) when flying Air Canada. No promo code is necessary for sale fares, which you can find for travel through June 30, 2022, with blackout dates Dec. 16, 2021 – Jan. 6, 2022, and Feb. 26 – Mar. 20. Aeroplan members can also earn a minimum of 1,000 bonus points by entering promo code 20MILLION when booking eligible fares.

This sale is nothing too out of the ordinary for Air Canada. Last year, we did see a pretty stellar deal come out on Cyber Monday though, so be sure to check back for our post on Monday. Nonetheless, some of the best deals in this sale include:

  • Washington D.C. to Vancouver $322 roundtrip
  • Toronto to Buenos Aires $815 CAD roundtrip ($642 USD)
  • Seattle to Montreal $341 roundtrip

Sale expires: Sunday, November 28, at 11:59 pm PT

Alaska Airlines

For Black Friday, Alaska Airlines is having one of its better sales with fares starting from $29 one-way. Most sale fares are valid for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays, between January 5 – March 9, 2022. Certain routes will have different restrictions. Some highlights include:

  • Seattle to Portland $57 roundtrip, nonstop
  • San Francisco to New York $177 roundtrip, nonstop
  • Boston to San Diego $197 roundtrip, nonstop

Sale expires: Sunday, November 28, at 11:59 pm PT

Allegiant

Allegiant has reduced fares up to 40% off all routes for Black Friday. The travel period varies due to the majority of routes being seasonal. Allegiant’s fares are normally quite low and the schedule is limited, but if you can make it work, these fares are hard to beat. A few examples of what you can book include:

  • Houston to Asheville $66 roundtrip, nonstop
  • Spokane to Las Vegas $66 roundtrip, nonstop
  • Nashville to Bozeman $82 roundtrip, nonstop

Sale expires: Monday, November 29, at 11:59 pm PT

American Airlines

On the surface, American’s Black Friday fare sale doesn’t really seem like anything out of the ordinary. The airline is simply listing several routes with either one-way or roundtrip fares under $100. Don’t get me wrong, these are super cheap flights, but are also quite typical for these particular routes.

However, the fact that American basically eliminated Basic Economy fares for domestic travel during the course of the pandemic means these Main Cabin fares are much better than what the competition offers. The travel period varies by route but the lowest fares are mostly for December/January travel, excluding holidays. A few examples include: (prices are for Main Cabin fares which include carry-on bag, seat selection, and no change fees)

  • Philadelphia to Ft. Lauderdale $97 roundtrip, nonstop
  • Chicago to Miami $97 roundtrip, nonstop
  • New York to Los Angeles $187 roundtrip, nonstop

Bonus: You can also save up to 45% off when purchasing AAdvantage miles. Buying miles is almost always a bad deal but if you just need to top off your balance for an immediate use redemption, this sale could save you some money.

Sale expires: No expiration on fare sale; Buy miles sale expires Monday, November 29

Avelo Airlines

Take 30% off roundtrip flights on Avelo Airlines for Black Friday. This is a one-day sale so you must book today for travel between December 1 – 31, 2021. To receive the discount, just enter promo code BLACKFRIDAY when booking eligible dates on aveloair.com. The best thing about this sale is that there are no blackout dates so you can even save on Christmas flights.

The discount reduces fares as low as $50 roundtrip for certain routes. Of course, travel around the holidays will generally be more expensive but you can likely find a great last-minute deal for the holidays with this sale if the limited route network and schedule works for you. A few ideas include:

  • Tucson to Burbank $50 roundtrip, nonstop
  • Burbank to Arcata $64 roundtrip, nonstop
  • New Haven to Ft. Lauderdale $78 roundtrip, nonstop

Sale expires: Friday, November 26, at 11:59 pm PT

Avianca

Avianca is changing the color scheme with its Red Friday sale. Flights from the U.S. to Latin America start from just $35 one-way. Super deals are plentiful for travel from mid-January onward. Avianca is also discounting baggage fees and upgrades but beware that the percentages advertised may be deceiving since it’s compared to airport rates. A few airfare examples include:

  • Houston to San Salvador $110 roundtrip, nonstop
  • Miami to Medellin $118 roundtrip, nonstop
  • New York to Bogota $210 roundtrip, nonstop

Sale expires: Monday, November 29

Breeze Airways

One of the newest U.S. airlines is having a “Nicer” sale than most for Black Friday. So nice, in fact, that Breeze Airways is offering its upgraded “Nicer” fare for only $19 extra compared to the standard “Nice” fare. This means you’ll be able to sit in an extra legroom seat, bring a normal-sized carry-on bag, check one bag, board the plane first, and enjoy a drink and snack onboard for just $19 more than the equivalent of Breeze Airways’ basic economy fare which only includes a personal item. In all, this represents an $80 value.

There are no blackout dates so this upgrade can be purchased for any flight through the end of Breeze’s current booking schedule, May 2, 2022.  The lowest “Nice” fares currently on offer are $39 one-way, which means you can book a “Nicer” fare for $58 on most routes within the network. Don’t wait! This is a one-day sale so you must book today! A few examples include: (fares include baggage and extra legroom seats)

  • Oklahoma City to Tampa $116 roundtrip, nonstop (Nicer)
  • Pittsburgh to Charleston $116 roundtrip, nonstop (Nicer)
  • Louisville to New Orleans $116 roundtrip, nonstop (Nicer)

Sale expires: Friday, November 26, at 11:59 pm ET

British Airways

Travelers originating in the UK can book 20,000 seats to the USA for £299 return (~$398). This could benefit U.S. travelers if you want to take multiple trips to London by nesting a roundtrip flight starting in the UK between the outbound and inbound flight of a roundtrip flight originating in the U.S.

For travel originating in the U.S., rather than a fare sale, British Airways is discounting vacation packages for Black Friday. Save up to $500 based on a tiered system.

  • Save $50 when you spend at least $1,000
  • Save $100 when you spend at least $2,000
  • Save $250 when you spend at least $4,000
  • Save $500 when you spend at least $6,000

British Airways does offer some decently priced vacation packages so if you prefer to book everything together, you can save some money with this deal. Flights from New York to London including 5 nights hotel start from $631 per person based on two people traveling, double occupancy.

Sale expires: Monday, November 29

This year, fares start from $728 roundtrip to destinations throughout Asia for departures between January 1 – May 23, or August 15 – October 29, 2022.

While a few destinations in Asia are currently open to U.S. travelers, you’ll want to research entry requirements for specifics. A few sample fares from this sale include:

  • Los Angeles to Manila $728 roundtrip
  • San Francisco to Jakarta $1,409 roundtrip in Premium Economy
  • Los Angeles to Singapore $3,046 roundtrip in Business Class

Sale expires: Monday, November 29, at 11:59 pm PT

Have Delta SkyMiles? Now might be a great time to unload them to book a flight for 2022.
