It averaged $473 round trip for international flights.

“PHL’s airline partners offer access to a variety of international and domestic destinations at fares that fit a range of budgets,” said Kate Sullivan, Deputy Director of Strategic Partnerships.

JFK and Newark were the top two cheapest airports for international flights nationwide.

Newark airport took second place for affordability with 208 deals.

JFK International Airport was No. 1, with 239 deals.

Scott’s Cheap Flights looked at 168 airports.

Scott’s Cheap Flights excluded budget airlines like Spirit or Frontier, or deals with inconvenient layovers or “illogical routing.”

Rankings are based on the Scotts Cheap Flights deals offered each week on its website and which airport those deals come from.
