The price of airline tickets to New York changes depending on the time of year.

The most expensive periods are the summer months and the end of the year (with the holiday season including Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve) in New York. To get the best rates, I advise trying to book your flight at least 6 months in advance.
