Airfare deals to Japan: Find the cheapest flights

The flight fare for Japan, as well as for any other destination, varies according to numerous factors, such as:

  • The airline;
  • The time of the year;
  • A non-stop or stopover flight;
  • The departure and arrival airports;
  • The cabin class (economy, premium economy, business class, first-class);
  • The type of aircraft and its age;
  • The optional insurances for cancelling, baggage, etc.;
  • Miscellanous.

Discount airplane tickets are likely to get booked faster than regular fare tickets, so we recommend buying them as soon as possible, before they get sold out or the discount ends.
