Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New Hampshire are the second, third and fourth-cheapest states to fly from in the country, according to a study by travel website Hopper.com.

Delaware has the cheapest airfare prices with one in 10 round-trip flights priced at $260.77 or less, the study found.

One in 10 round-trip airfares from Rhode Island cost $274 or less, while one in 10 round-trip Massachusetts flights cost $274.82 or less.

The three most expensive states were Alaska, Hawaii and Wyoming at $567.02, $526.60 and $481.50, respectively.

The site said it analyzed data from about 10 million flight price searches and 1 billion trips per day to rank the 10th percentile price to fly in and out of each US state.

The study also found that “higher air travel prices correlate with lower income and typical round-trip airfare declines by $2.30 for every additional $1,000 in median household income.”

And, “Although income is correlated with prices, we found three key underlying factors that drive cost: average distance traveled, demand density, and airline competition,” the study added. “States with lower income also tend to have lower competition and lower demand density.”
