Here are 2024 most-searched summer destinations

Ahead of Memorial Day, Delta released its second annual list of most-searched international destinations. Gathered from Delta.com search data, the list reveals cities on customers’ minds for summer travel between May and August.

Delta is running its largest international schedule ever this summer – and our customers are ready to see the world.

The top 10 list reveals that many U.S. flyers are seeking different cultural experiences in faraway settings, with Athens experiencing the highest surge (248 percent increase) in searches from last year. The ever-popular cities of London, Paris and Rome topped the list, along with Dublin, Barcelona and Vancouver, Canada as new additions this year.

Searches for these top 10 international destinations increased more than 150 percent from 2023, highlighting the strong demand for international travel following the airline’s 11 highest sales days in its history, all occurring this calendar year.

These destinations include London, Paris, Rome, Athens, Cancun, Amsterdam, TOKYO, Dublin, Barcelona and Vancouver.

On the domestic front, top-searched destinations (excluding Delta Hubs) include Las Vegas, Orlando, Miami and Honolulu, indicating a strong interest for sundrenched getaways and cities holding major sporting events this summer.

With more than 290 destinations across more than 50 countries, other notable summer destinations include new, nonstop service to Venice, Tulum and Naples (starting in May).
