Fares to popular cities such as Havana, the capital of Cuba, Auckland, Shanghai, Bali, Orlando, Toronto and Perth are all at least 10% cheaper this year than last, it said.
Flights to Sydney and Las Vegas cost about 9% less. The best time to book for the lowest fares is 13 to 29 weeks before departure, depending on the destination, it said.
According to Skyscanner, domestic fares have fallen by 7.5%. Its travel editor Cat McGloin added: "We have seen an average 10% drop in flight prices over the last year, but what we are now able to see is where the biggest drops are for those long haul destinations and show travellers that those far flung locations might be more affordable than they think.
"Finding cheap prices can be easily if travellers are flexible, choosing to depart from a different airport or changing the date of travel are just two quick hacks to consider."
