Showcases Prices for Top Airfares From Across the Country

BOSTON, MA–(Marketwire – June 24, 2010) – After polling its vast airfare inventory, Cheapflights.com, the online leader
in finding and publishing travel deals, has determined the most and least
affordable departure airports in the U.S. with its list of 101 airports ranked on affordability. In the process,
Cheapflights.com also found the destinations with the lowest domestic and
international average airfares and the best average prices our users are
finding for a flight to Europe at the top and bottom ranked airports.

“Like real estate and politics, airfares are often very local,” says
Meredith Hanrahan, Chief Travel Officer at Cheapflights. “It’s important to
know what an average price looks like in your back yard so you can spot and
book a deal. It’s also important to know when a nearby airport can be a
cost saving alternative for any or all trips.”

Of the 101 most searched-on departure airports, below are the 20
most affordable along with average round trip airfares, including taxes,
for top deal locations for each.
