The latest news from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics notes that airfares jumped by nearly 5 percent in the first quarter of this year, which isn’t news to FareCompare readers as air travel analyst Rick Seaney revealed this trend back in March.

HIGHEST AIRFARE: CINCINNATI

Also not new but worth noting are the airport cities with the highest and lowest average airfares. Once again, Cincinnati ranks most expensive while Atlantic City is the cheapest.

5 Highest Average Airfare Cities

  1. Cincinnati
  2. Memphis
  3. Houston Bush
  4. Huntsville
  5. Washington Dulles

LOWEST AIRFARE: ATLANTIC CITY

5 Lowest Average Airfare Cities

  1. Atlantic City
  2. Long Beach
  3. Bellingham
  4. Las Vegas
  5. Burbank

LACK OF COMPETITION CITED

Cincinnati wins highest airfare honors due to lack of vigorous competition at the airport – interestingly, the same can be said of cheapest airport, Atlantic City.

What You Really Need to Know about Cheap Airlines

However, while the vast majority of Cincinnati service is provided by the higher priced legacy carriers (and this is true of Memphis as well), Atlantic City is served only by rock-bottom discount carrier Spirit. As for Long Beach, it is served by a handful of airlines but has become a focus city for low-cost carrier JetBlue.
