How it works?

The data below represent indexed flight search volume across KAYAK brands in the listed origin countries. It’ll be updated daily to reflect year over three year changes in traveler interest. That way, you can see how search interest has changed and compare that to pre pandemic travel behavior. For year over three year comparisons by day, we compare the same day of the week from the same week three years ago. For example, we’d compare Wednesday, January 12, 2022 to Wednesday, January 9, 2019. Note: data is updated periodically to increase accuracy.
