With data assembled from the US Department of Transportation’s fourth quarter 2013 airfare report, the national average of domestic fares stands at $381.05 while the average domestic fare out of GSP International Airport stands at $371.99.
The US Department of Transportation ranked airports based on average fares in the fourth quarter of 2013, and GSP ranked in the Top 100 ahead of Atlanta, Charlotte and Charleston airports. In the same report, GSP was credited with the second largest decrease in average fares since the fourth quarter of 2000, behind only White Plains, N.Y.
With the average rates out of Atlanta sitting at $399 and the average rates out of Charlotte sitting at $405, GSP holds the lowest regional fares, said GSP spokeswoman Roslyn Weston.
“Upstate consumers often think the fares are cheaper at the region’s other airports,” she said.
A portion of the lower fares can be attributed to carriers such as Southwest Airlines and Allegiant Air operating out of the airport.
