As in FlyBe, for August 2016?

Anyone know?

Not sure about FlyBe specifically, but generally, scheduled flights are released 330 days out - so you would be looking for 330 days before your return date.

It doesn't always get you the cheapest price though - sometimes the BA and Virgin sales at Christmas work out cheaper, but it's horrible watching and waiting!

whatever you do, keep clearing the cookies off of your computer each time you search. this really does affect the prices. would suggest you start looking 11 months in advance but remember that there are some pretty volatile countries around and booking far in advance may get you a good price but you may end up not really wanting it due to the political/social situation in the country.

Long haul carriers are just releasing July/August dates. For example, with Virgin Atlantic you can currently book up to August 3rd.

Short haul carriers are normally released a bit later ime.

For example, on the Ryan Air website it states:
Ryanair endeavours to load flight schedules at least five to six months in advance of operation.

We're hoping Spain won't have fallen to Isis by next August confused!
