CheapOair.com has announced its list of the most popular vacation destinations for the rest of the summer, based on an analysis of flights booked through Labor Day. The most-visited destinations of the summer include tourist hotspots Orlando, Las Vegas, and New York; with the Big Apple dropping down to third after previously clinching last year's number one spot, the company said. 

CheapOair.com says that an increase in seat capacity has driven down airfares, resulting in a 7 percent increase in passengers traveling within the United States as compared to last year between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

In a written statement Tom Spagnola, CheapOair's SVP of supplier relations, noted that Denver and Seattle have also seen increasing interest this summer.
