Cheaper flight to New York area from Indy?

My husband and I are wanting to visit New York to attend a Yankees ballgame. We're thinking we'll arrive on a Friday and leave on a Monday. It seems like the flights from Indy to New York are expensive. Would we be better off to fly into a different airport to save money, then take a train or bus to get to the stadium? We've never been to New York.

Thanks for any advice you can give!

Are you checking all three New York area airports - JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark? Any one of these would be fine.

Westchester County Airport would be less convenient but possible, but I'd be surprised if it had less expensive flights.

Stewart Airport would be a longer trip as would Islip-MacArthur, but now we're getting pretty fair afield.

Be careful about planning very inconvenient flights to save a few hundred dollars. It can eat up huge amounts of your time, make your whole trip more stressful, and the cost of ground transportation can diminish your savings.

Just go to a general travel site (Expedia, Travelocity, Kayak), enter all NY airports (code is often NYC), and also look at other departure airports.

Your big cost savings could come from driving to a different airport on your end. There may be some great fares out of Chicago, which is a more frequent route with more competition.
