Cincy airport has nation's highest ticket prices



Published: Wed, July 30, 2014 @ 11:20 a.m.

CINCINNATI (AP) — New federal numbers show the airport serving the Cincinnati area has the nation’s highest ticket prices.

Federal transportation statistics released Tuesday show the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport had an average roundtrip ticket price of $514 during the first quarter this year.

That’s up from $510 in the fourth quarter of 2013, when the airport had the second-highest average ticket price among the 100 largest U.S. airports.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the ranking shows new low-cost airlines have not had an impact on lowering overall fares at the airport.

Officials are optimistic, however, that the airport in northern Kentucky will start to drop in the federal airfare rankings later this year as new low-cost carriers catch on. The increased competition is expected to lower fares.
