These airports have the highest flight prices in the U.S.
The rising cost of air travel is old news at this point—a cherry on top of an already
stressful flying experience—but new data reveals just how much prices have risen, and which airports have had the largest fare increases in the last year.
According to a new LendingTree analysis, the average cost of a domestic travel jumped 9.8%—from $347.56 to $381.55
in the first quarter of 2023 compared to the same period in 2022. That's a significant increase, but the figures also show
dramatic increases of up to 20% at four U.S. airports. Miami International Airport is at the top of the list, with average fares rising by 23.9%.
Portland International Jetport in Maine witnessed a 22.3% increase in fares, while Southwest Florida International and Long Beach
Fares at Dane County Regional-Truax Field in Madison, Bill and Hillary Clinton National-Adams Field in Little Rock, City of Colorado Springs Municipal in Colorado
Springs, Gerald R. Ford International in Grand Rapids, and Myrtle Beach International in Myrtle Beach all increased by 15% to 19%.
Dane County Regional is also the most costly departure airport, with a ticket costing an average of $537.70.
