Lowest average fare in U.S. continues at Atlantic City airport

by amit.uniyal 5. March 2014 09:28

The Atlantic City International Airport continues to maintain an unassailable lead in terms of the lowest average fare in the whole of United States. The U.S. Department of Transportation recently made public its findings saying that the Atlantic City airport has maintained its reputation for providing the cheapest fares in the country. The airport ranked among the top 100 airports in the U.S.

Passengers flying out of the Atlantic City International Airport are obviously happy at this outcome. The study indicated that the airport has solidified its reputation further and continues to do so and has emerged as a popular hub for cheapskates.

The study said that the title of cheapest fares has been held by the airport ever since Q2 2009. The recent figures have covered the outcome of Q3 2013. The study said that the average fare at the airport was $157, when compared to that of $390 for airports across the U.S.
 
Atlantic City airport has been able to maintain its position because of the discount carrier Spirit Airlines, which has been aggressively promoting its low fares strategy. It is the only scheduled airline offering flights out of the airport. Spirit Airline’s prime focus at Atlantic City has been to cater to budget-conscious leisure travelers seeking to travel to Florida’s many vacation spots.

David Smallen, U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics’ spokesman, said that Spirit Airlines is the only one serving Atlantic City International Airport using a low fares business model. Spirit Airlines has however declined to comment about its low fares model.
