Fort Lauderdale Airfares Among Nation's Cheapest

The good news for cruise passengers planning to sail from Port Everglades is that a U.S. Department of Transportation report ranks the nearby Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport as the fourth cheapest in the nation.

Released yesterday, the Bureau of Transportation Statistics' study considered affordability and declines in airfares when ranking the top 100 airports based on originating passengers. While airfares rose 4.4 percent nationwide in the first quarter of the year, average fares at Fort Lauderdale fell 7.7 percent to $238.
