Cheapest flights in America

Frequent fliers are likely familiar with the struggle of surfing the web for hours in attempt to find the most cost-efficient flight that also aligns with their schedule. Google travel-booking trends show that 94% of recreational flyers switch between various electronic devices when they plan or book their travel, which is in part attributed to what Google calls the anxiety factor, where travelers are unsure if they’re making the most economical decision. This could suggest that at least when it comes to vacation, Americans are adamant about getting the best deal possible. While many people have a concrete location in mind when planning their getaways, others plan around a budget, deciding on a maximum price point before ironing out the other details.

Using U.S. Department of Transportation data for 2017's third fiscal quarter, Stacker has listed the 50 cheapest domestic flights between metropolitan areas in the continental United States according to the average market fare for a one-way flight. The flights are selected from a pool of the top 1,000 flight routes and are listed along with the airline offering the low rate.
