Kayak: International flight searches to Florida down by more than half

Searches for flights to major US cities this summer are down by more than half compared to last year, according to fares comparison site Kayak.
Interest in Florida has taken a hit, with Orlando and Tampa searches down 58%, Fort Lauderdale down 57% and Miami 52%, it said.
Searches for San Diego are down 43%, Las Vegas has dropped 36% and Los Angeles has fallen 32%.
However, Kayak said airfares were holding firm, although hotel prices for stays in June to August in Vegas are down by an average of 39%. In San Francisco they have dropped 34% and in New York rates are down 32%.
Kayak said flights to Mexico City were currently 'the bargain of the summer', falling by 39% on average. Fares to Rio de Janeiro are also down by 23%, but this is largely because they were inflated last summer when it hosted the Olympics.
An increase in flights to Singapore has led to a 20% drop in air fares, said Kayak, while prices to New Zealand are down 22%.
