Cheapest flights from every state

  • Cheapest flights from every state

    Americans’ work schedules are some of the longest on Earth, clocking in the seventh most hours on average per year amongst the world’s nations. As such, people tend to take vacations quite seriously, oftentimes going to measures so great as taking out large loans—with 74% of Americans reporting they have gone into debt to finance their getaways.

    While this is something that travelers have demonstrated a willingness to do time and time again, it is undoubtedly a significant source of stress that would be alleviated to a degree if they could find cheaper travel options. A time frame and overall budget are typical factors that go into the final decision, but another approach to vacation planning can be choosing a destination based the affordability of getting there from one’s home state.

    In hoping to aid prospective travelers in doing just that, Stacker used data from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics’ Consumer Airfare Report (Table 1a) in order to list the cheapest flights out of each state. The data is aggregated from all four fiscal quarters of 2017, and includes every state in the continental United States with the exceptions of Delaware, Kansas, South Dakota, and West Virginia, each of which had no representation in this particular dataset.

    Read on to plan the next fiscally responsible getaway from your home state.
