Vancouver, BC – If there is more than one airport near your origin or destination city, check them both. The more options you have in terms of airports and travel dates, the more likely you will find what may be one of the last discount seats to where you are going. Some websites can check some nearby airports for you, but if you are willing to use other alternates, you should check those, too, by doing separate searches.
“Checking the alternative airport is a trick for buying cheap airline tickets . For example, Cheapflights.com just released their fourth annual Airport Affordability Index, which ranks popular airports with the most affordable round-trip airfares, including tax. You could save a lot of money just by booking a flight into an alternate airport.” said Jim Washington, a seasoned E-commerce expert in North America.
“California’s Long Beach Airport (Daugherty Field; LGB) has the cheapest flights, with an average fare of just $216. Last year, LGB came in at the number two spot. South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach Jetport (MYR) jumped to the number two spot (last year it was #42) with an average airfare of $249, and California’s Fresno Air Terminal (FAT) came in at #3 with an average airfare of $270.” explained Jim.
“At the bottom of the list was Honolulu International Airport (HNL), with an average airfare of $689. Other airports in the bottom 10 were Washington Dulles International (IAD), Miami International (MIA), and New York’s JFK International.” added Jim.
The findings show that geography doesn’t necessarily determine affordability. Instead, alternative airports in close proximity to large cities or outside of major metro areas tended to offer the cheapest flights. But keep in mind that a cheap airfare often means an indirect flight with several layovers. Combining searching last minute flights , you can save a lot on traveling fares.
