The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport had the 11th-highest average domestic airfare in the first quarter of this year.
The federal Bureau of Transportation statistics said fares at Minnesota's main airport averaged $413 per flight, either one way or round trip. The figures don't include baggage fees or other charges by the airlines.
That's a 9 percent rise year over year, which is just over the 8.4 percent average increase for the 100 largest US airports.
Minnesota has been rising through the rankings in the last decade, up from the 22nd-highest fares in 2008 and the 15th-highest fares in 2010.
The top average fares were from Houston, Huntsville, Newark, Cincinnati and Dulles airport, just outside of Washington, D.C. Fares from Madison, Wis. were ranked 10th in the country this spring.
