Travelers can access deeply discounted flights by bidding on unsold seats 24 hours before take-off

Finding the best deals on air travel can require time and effort, which may not be worth the minimal discounts. New app Air Ticket Arena let customers bid on the last-minute leftover seats that airlines are looking to offload for low prices. The process starts when airlines tell the app how many seats are left 24 to 48 hours before a flight and the lowest price they are willing to set for them.

Users then bid on those seats, and the winners are given their boarding passes and several hours to prepare. Air Ticket Arena is great for people looking to book a last-minute trip or emergency flight, though the lack of certainty of getting a seat on any desired flight is a setback. Additionally, the company only has select airlines currently signed up, meaning destinations are limited. The app is available in the Google Play store and will be available for iOS in March.
