Airfare to Tegucigalpa, Honduras

Include Hotels for the Best Deals

The most populous city in the country, Tegucigalpa is also the third-largest in Central America, home to 1.7 million people. With a named derived from the native words for “Silver Hills”, Tegucigalpa is best seen from above at the Cristo el Picacho, and below at the San Isidrio Market.

Airfare to Tegucigalpa will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates.

Also consider flights into San Salvador, El Salvador. To get between the cities, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines. Although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.

Another possible money-saving tip is to look for flights that go through San Jose, Costa Rica, or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.

Finally, consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. TACA de Honduras is the national airline. However, Continental Airlines, American Airlines and other airlines also stop in Tegucigalpa.

The most expensive air tickets to Tegucigalpa are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.

Summary of Money Saving Tips:

  • Fly mid-week
  • Book your holiday during the off-peak season
  • Consider flying into San Salvador, El Salvador and traveling overland to Tegucigalpa via train or bus
  • Look for flights that go through large cities, with many flights
  • Check out carriers besides the national airline – they may undercut the monopolistic competition
