Table 11: One-Year Change in 4th Quarter Average Domestic Fare 2013-2014 (2014$)

Excel | CSV

Fares are based on domestic itinerary fares. Itinerary fares consist of round-trip fares unless the customer does not purchase a return trip. In that case, the one-way fare is included. Fares are based on the total ticket value which consists of the price charged by the airlines plus any additional taxes and fees levied by an outside entity at the time of purchase. Fares include only the price paid at the time of the ticket purchase and do not include other fees paid at the airport or onboard the aircraft. Averages do not include frequent-flyer or “zero fares” or a few abnormally high reported fares.

Top 100 airports* (based on 2013 U.S. originating domestic passengers) ranked by percent change in average domestic itinerary fare from 4Q 2013 to 4Q 2014 (2014$)
