Tickets for Fukuoka, Tokyo, Bangkok, Taipei, Macao, Hanoi and Phuket were cheapest in June, and were all below the annual average. For example, tickets for a round trip to Fukuoka cost an average of 210,000 won ($197.40) during the year. Tickets in June, however, were 19 percent cheaper, costing only 170,000 won.

In November, flights to Osaka in Japan, Da Nang in Vietnam, Guam in the United States, Cebu in the Philippines, Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia and Hong Kong were cheapest of the year. Tickets to New York were also cheapest that month, costing 940,000 won, down 14 percent from the yearly average.
