During Kerala’s peak season, which is from November to March, cheap flights to Kerala might be hard to find since it'll be when the "Cochin Carnival' and the 'Theyyam Festival' are happening. If you can't book a flight to Kerala during this month, you can still enjoy other major festivals and events like the 'Thrissur Pooram Festival' and the 'Kerala Boat Festivals' that are happening throughout the year. However, prices for flights to Kerala tend to be cheaper and easy to come across during the low season, which is during April and May due to the excessive rainfall.
