ERLANGER, KY (FOX19) - Cincinnati's International Airport is already one of the most expensive in the country, and fares are climbing even higher.

The airport in Northern Kentucky now ranks seventh in the country when it comes to ticket prices.

The average fare cost more than $425 in the second quarter of this year, a jump of almost 20 percent from the same time a year ago.

Apparently, the high prices aren't keeping people away. Overall traffic at CVG is up.
