I’m near the great lakes and have started to look for flights out West. We are having our wedding and or honeymoon in the North west region. Montana, Idaho, Wyoming. I’m having trouble find reasonable ticket prices. The best price I have found so far would involve flying into Denver. I’m not opposed to that at all, but thought I would write a quick post to see if anyone had any suggested airports. There just doesn’t seem to be many choices. Thank you!!

@TequilaSunrise: Depends where exactly you’re flying from. I’ve found the best prices flying into Billings, Montana. I would look into Frontier Airlines & see what their routes are, they tend to be the cheapest I’ve found.

@les105: We will fly out of either Detroit or Indianapolis. Whichever one is cheaper. Thank you ! I will check Billings!!

ok well i don’t know about airports but a family member who is a travel agent is helping us book for our honeymoon and said that about 50-60 days out is the best time to book for prices…

@TequilaSunrise: I’m just outside of detroit, i’ve heard flying out of flint is cheaper, also, check allegient air. Their closest hub is in Toledo OH but they tend to be a lot cheaper.

@TequilaSunrise: Indianapolis is on the Frontier route, so I would check out Indianapolis-Billings. I’ve found that a lot of flights from the Midwest to Northwest involve flying through Denver, so you may not find anything cheaper.
I agree that you’ll probably get better prices closer to your honeymoon date.

Thanks for all of the tips! I looked at Billings from Indy and it’s more what I was looking for price wise. Getting excited!! 🙂

I read recently to look at airfare prices on a Tuesday or Wednesday as that is when the airlines release their lowest “new” fares. Saw that in my Budget Travel magazine. 🙂

You might be a bit far out for well priced tickets. As a pp said 3 months is typically the best when airlines start getting more reasonable to fill seats. A year ahead they have no reason to be cheap

I’m a travel agent…not sure when you are looking to travel but if you are able to fly Southwest you get 2 free checked bags per person. All other airlines in the US charge a minimum of $25-$35 for each bag/each way-which will increase ticket price. You can go to most airline websites and put in Route Map in the website Search box to see where they fly/to from. Personally, I fly Southwest whenver I can. Another suggestion…never book the last flight of the day, no matter the airline. If you book the last flight of the day and it is delayed/cancelled etc…it could mess up your entire trip.
