A new report by the folks at Reward Expert found that the the most expensive airport in the country is Newark's Liberty Airport, followed by New York's JFK, Washington Dulles, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and LAX. Newark's average domestic fare of about $429 pushed the East Coast hub to the top of the list, along with its high food prices (the highest in the country) and its lack of free wi-fi, according to the research. Alternately, the cheapest place to fly in and out of is Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood, with Las Vegas' McCarren, Orlando, Phoenix Sky Harbor, and Tampa rounding out the top five most affordable.
To determine the ranking, researchers evaluated the 45 busiest air travel hubs in the US using 10 key indicators across four different categories: transportation to and from the airport, plane ticket prices, food, and amenities (wi-fi, cost of luggage trolleys, etc.). Here's how the full lineup looks, from least to most expensive:
