5. Fly into or out of Smaller Regional Airports

Flying into a major airport can come at a pretty hefty cost. Luckily, many large cities are within reasonable distance from several regional airports. Due to their size and distance from the city, flying into regional airports is often much cheaper than the big city alternative. The downside is a longer transit time once you land, but for many, this is a small price to pay if you’ve scored significant savings on your ticket.
