CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - It's long been a critique of Charleston: flights are just too expensive. But according to a new report, flying in and out of Charleston International Airport comes at a much better value.
Cheapflights.com has spent the last four years compiling annual "Airport Affordability" reports. From 2012 to 2013, the airport made a big leap up in terms of competitive airfares.
In 2011, the Holy City ranked 66th on the list.
JetBlue Airways has been a big contributor to that average. The discount airline started daily, non-stop flights to New York and Boston at comparatively low prices in the upper $100s and lower $200s.
JetBlue service hit Charleston in late February.
