Who Knew?! Airfare Pricing

Fares are incredibly dynamic and always determined by the airlines, not the airport itself. Who Knew?!  While we don’t control airfares, we are continually monitoring airfares and comparing them to surrounding communities. 

Fares that may be discouraging travelers from flying out of DCRA and causing them to drive to a nearby airport are discussed with airlines.

The best fares can be found with an advance purchase. We recommend six to eight weeks.  Also try to fly on less-busy days. Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays are excellent travel days for a better ticket price.  Keep in mind many factors affect ticket prices such as fuel prices, the time of year, special events or holidays, destination, and the airline you choose to fly. 
Ride Share Pick-up Location

Catching an on-demand ride service (Uber or Lyft) home from the airport?  Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) operating at the airport pick-up in a designated area – this area is located across from doors #3 and #4 in the commercial lane.  The commercial lane is on the other side of the median from the drop-off lanes.  As always if you are on the way to the airport – your driver will drop you right at the terminal.
