I'd like to search for flights departing either Fri PM or Sat AM, and returning either Sun PM or Mon AM.

In Google Flights, this requires 4 separate searches. Is there another site/tool that allows such a search?

  • I'm not sure what you mean by "another site/tool that allows such a search". All airlines offer search options where you can input your desired departure and return dates. – Michael Apr 23 '17 at 23:32

    @MichaelC. My desired departure date is "between 6pm Friday and 12pm Saturday", and my desired return date is "between 6pm Sunday and 9am Monday". Google Flights does support flexible departure/return dates, and does support specific departure/return times, but these times apply to all days (for example, Friday or Saturday, between 2pm and 5pm). – gberger Apr 23 '17 at 23:38

    @SheikPaul I know, Google Flights also allows for this. But can you simultaneously search for "depart Fri PM or Sat AM" + "return Sun PM or Sat AM"? – gberger Apr 23 '17 at 23:52

    @choster Does't seem to be a duplicate of that question. This question appears to be "I want to travel on a specific weekend but I don't really mind what time"; the other is "I want to travel at specific times but I don't really mind what weekend." – David Richerby May 23 '17 at 10:15

On Matrix Airfare Search you have the option of searching for flexible dates. In my case I was able to search for flights from LHR to FRA leaving Friday and/or day before and coming back Monday on this day only - but you can change that to be the day before/after. You can also specify what time of day (early morning, midday, etc.)

EDIT: OP is looking for a combination of different times frames on different dates. Just click on the "Time bars" after your search and you can see a visual of the different dates and times. enter image description here

  • thanks, but I still wasn't able to perform my desired search. I tried "depart Sat AM or the day before", and the search results included flights departing Sat AM or Fri AM. imgur.com/a/LQq11 – gberger Apr 24 '17 at 0:03
  • @gberger That's what it's supposed to do. You asked for Saturday AM and the day before (i.e. Friday AM). You can add in more times to get a wider range of time frames. – Michael Apr 24 '17 at 0:04

    right, but I can't configure it to search for Sat AM or Fri PM. – gberger Apr 24 '17 at 0:06
  • I edited again, please see revised answer. I really can't teach you how to use the tool, but if this doesn't help, then you might be better off calling a travel agent... – Michael Apr 24 '17 at 0:09

https://travelgam.com/ is a site meant for exactly this purpose. Users can define start of weekend and end of weekend in terms of both day and time. Such as Friday late evening and Monday early morning respectively.


Outbound and Return times can be specified along with an option for "Direct flights only".
