CAK: #1 in Low Fares

Posted on April 08, 2011 12:00 am by in Airlines

Nate Silver, a consumer reporter with the New York Times, recently analyzed airfares to determine which airports are really economical.  This type of analysis is routinely done by the US Department of Transportation and they issue a quarterly report based on their 10 percent sample.

Nate's study though, was a deep dive into what really makes an airport more affordable.  He used the standard US Department of Transportation 10 percent sample (based on coach seats only) plus factored in distance and demand by market.  He looked at big, medium and small airports. Expensive and cheap. After all that he determined which airports offered "fair vs. unfair" pricing levels. 

This is especially interesting to me because so many airports claim they have low fares. You see it on every airport billboard across America. At CAK our brand is built on low prices plus an exceptional customer experience. It's what makes us a better way to go.

Yet again, this study reaffirms our brand and more importantly our value to the community and region. CAK was listed as one of the top 10 most competitively priced midsized airports in the nation.  Our average fare is $40 less than the "fair fare," thanks to the commanding presence of AirTran Airways and Frontier Airlines at our airport.

Of course, this doesn't mean that you will always find a lower fare at CAK but our average fare is $100 less than Cleveland Hopkins and $60 less than Pittsburgh.  So be sure to check CAK every time you fly. If you like saving money, you'll be glad you did.

No, thanks. I don't like to save money on airfare.
