RewardExpert ranks the most and least expensive airports in the U.S.

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Travel can be inherently expensive, and having to fly through a particularly costly airport can put a damper on a vacation before it even starts. RewardExpert – a free online service that helps travelers take full advantage of travel reward programs – released its ranking of 2017’s Most and Least Expensive U.S. Airports. The ranking analyzes the 45 busiest domestic airports based on ten key indicators across four dimensions: transportation to and from the airport, plane ticket prices, amenities, and food.

“Airports are run like football stadiums; you pay more just by virtue of being there,” says RewardExpert CEO and co-founder Roman Shteyn. “Some airports take advantage of a captive audience to jack up expenses for items like food, parking, Wi-Fi, and other amenities. On top of that, some airports simply have higher costs for airfare, when compared to the national average. This ranking factors in all costs a traveler may incur at an airport to determine which are the most and least wallet-friendly.”

Key findings from 2017’s Most and Least Expensive U.S. Airports are:

Top five most expensive domestic airports
1. Newark Liberty International Airport
2. John F. Kennedy International Airport
3. Washington Dulles International Airport
4. Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport
5. Los Angeles International Airport
