ACY has lowest average round-trip airfare in country

EGG HARBOR TWP. -

New data released Tuesday by the Department of Transportation shows domestic air fares have continued to rise.

But there is good news if you're planning to fly out of South Jersey.

The cost of flying may be up, but if you're looking to book your next plane ticket you won't find a place cheaper than right here at Atlantic City International Airport.

"I have been happy" expressed passenger Sandra Cole-Hatchard.  "They've been going up but that's to be expected yeah I'm happy.

"It's pretty reasonable, spirit does a great job and the airfare was pretty reasonable," said passenger Daniel Vhughes.

The numbers released by the United States Department of Transportation shows that ACY has the lowest average domestic round–trip tickets for the 3rd Quarter and for the year something that the airport is no stranger to having.

"This is great news for Atlantic City International Airport now for the fourth year running we've had the cheapest round–trip airfare for the top 100 airports in the country," said South Jersey Transportation Executive Director Sam Donelson.

With an average price of $133, ACY fares are almost $100 cheaper than Long Beach, California who falls second on the list of the cheapest airports in the country.

And it's ACY's low fares that allows them to compete with larger airports.

"That's really why we see our airfares at the price that we do.  We don't service as many cities as Philadelphia or Newark and we know we have to do things better and cheaper than other airports," Donelson said.

Airport officials say managing to stay competitive, along with a friendly and helpful staff, is what lures travelers to ACY.

We're very proud, we're very happy, the people that use our airport they love the service they get here and once they understand the convenience and we're so inexpensive they keep coming back time and time again," Donelson said.

Since 2000, Atlantic City International Airport ranked 3rd for having the largest decreased on round-trip airfares.
