YLW, Your 'Cheap' Link To The World
Sep 18, 2013 / 6:00 am
It seems every website these days is coming out with a poll, survey or index designed around their product.
The latest comes courtesy of Cheapflights.ca which released its Canadian Airport Affordability Index on Tuesday.
According to the index, Kelowna International Airport ranked second with an average airfare of $432.
Only Bellingham offered cheaper average flights at $316.
The index was released based on searches on Cheapflights.ca during August.
The 20 most searched Canadian and US border airports were ranked, averaging airfares based on flight prices users found to the most popular destinations.
These destinations include Montreal, Miami, Los Angeles, London, Bangkok and Cancun.
Moncton ($436), Victoria ($441) and Detroit Metropolitan ($448) round out the top five.
Kelowna was ranked number eight the last time the index was released.
According to information on Cheapflights.ca:
This annual ranking, part of our ongoing efforts to help travellers get the best flights deals, offers a glimpse into how airfares vary by region and by year. The takeaway: airfares are fluid and can vary airport to airport. Be creative (and flexible) when planning your travel and be ready to jump on a deal when you see one.
