Baku, September 7, AZERTAC
Online travel agency Kiwi.com has produced 2016 Aviation Price Index, a ranking detailing countries of the world which offer the most and least expensive flights. Azerbaijan ranked sixth among the countries offering the least expensive flights.
The research, which took into account over 1 million international and domestic journeys, found that India offered the least expensive flight prices per 100km of travel, whilst the United Arab Emirates clocked in with the most expensive tickets.
To calculate the rankings, Kiwi.com analysed over a million flights to find an average price of domestic and international flights on a low cost and a legacy airline from each of the countries. Domestic flights were calculated by finding an average of flight costs from the country’s capital to up to five major cities within the country (where available), or a major city in a neighbouring country where no domestic flights were available, whilst international costs were calculated from the capital of each country to up to five international hubs within the same continent. All flights were checked for the same dates of travel (or neighbouring dates where necessary) on- and off-season, taking into account the same destinations and travel scheduling.
