Airports with the biggest price hikes over the past year

Revenge trips are taking a toll on people’s wallets. With many concerned about rising mortgage rates and car prices, the cost of travel at major airports across the country has quietly climbed steadily.

Nowhere is this more felt than in Miami, where the latest figures show that the average price of a domestic air ticket in Miami rose more than 31% last year, from $281.04 in the first quarter of 2022 to $368.31 in the first quarter of this year. Compiled by SmartAsset.

On average, airfares rose 16% nationwide over the period (with a few exceptions), and of all the airports the survey focused on with more than 100,000 passengers, only one experienced a year-over-year price decrease: Kahului, Hawaii Airport.

Miami saw the biggest increase, but both trips to and from Florida were a bit more expensive. Fort Myers’ Southwest Florida International Airport and Tampa International Airport also made the top 15.

New York City also saw a big jump, with the average outbound airfare up 20 percent from last year.
