Greenville-Spartanburg Airport (GSP) has a lower average domestic fare than Charlotte and Atlanta, according to a recent report by the US Department of Transportation.
The report ranks the top 100 airports in the country based on average domestic fare.
The average domestic fare for GSP has decreased 39.8 percent since 2000, compared to only 15.6 percent nationally.
The fare decreased 0.1 percent at GSP since last year. According to the report, the lowest average fare for the top 100 airports was about $111 at Sanford, Fla.; the highest was $523 at Cincinnati, Ohio.
A press release by GSP attributed the low fares to low-fare carriers Allegiant and Southwest Airlines and “the competiveness of American, Delta Airlines, United and US Airways,” offering about 49 nonstop departures to 15 major cities daily.
