Report shows CVG has 4th-highest fares in nation

HEBRON, KY (FOX19) -

Average domestic air fares rose to $356 in the first quarter of 2011, up 8.4 percent from the average fare of $328 in the first quarter of 2010, the U.S. Department of Transportation's Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) reported Wednesday.

The Greater Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport had the fourth-highest average fares in the country with an average of $465.75. Houston had the highest average fares at $477, followed by Huntsville and Newark-Liberty,.

First-quarter fares increased 5.7 percent from the fourth quarter of 2010, the first increase after two quarterly declines. Quarter-to-quarter changes may be affected by seasonal factors.

BTS, a part of the Research and Innovative Technology Administration, reports average fares based on domestic itinerary fares, round-trip or one-way for which no return is purchased.  

CVG also had the third highest average fare increase from first quarter 2010 to first quarter 2011 at 15.2 percent.
