Average Domestic Air Fares

NOTE: City-level data - select up to 3 airports and/or metropolitan areas and click Submit button. Graphics scales may vary by city. Current year constant dollars are used for inflation adjustment.

BTS average 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 fees for optional services, such as baggage fees. Averages do not include frequent-flyer or “zero fares.”
