FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) – The Diamond Hogs have punched their ticket to the super regionals in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
However, due to airline pricing, Razorback lovers in Arkansas are heading to have a much tougher time going to aid the group.
Marsha Fuller is a community journey specialist below in Fayetteville. She suggests for a household of two on the lookout to go to the super regionals you must be organized to pay back all-around $2000 in airfare by yourself.
“We have not experienced a lot of phone calls for flights likely to the tremendous regionals, which is incredibly surprising,” claims Fuller.
Alex English with Northwest Arkansas Nationwide Airport states gasoline price ranges, pilot shortages, and overall desire are participating in into these charges.
Even so, she thinks it may perhaps be additional than airline price ranges actively playing into people’s capability to go to super regionals.
She says even just before the Razorbacks defeat OSU, there may well not have been airline seats out there.
“A good deal of these flights are filled by now our availability is confined simply because we don’t have as many seats obtainable due to the fact of the pilot lack,” states English.
We did the math for any person looking to make the 15-hour street vacation from Fayetteville.
An typical sedan will expense you $350 spherical-journey with fuel rates remaining what they are an SUV will be in the $640 vary.
This would be on top rated of a lodge if you can not drive 15 hrs in one day and the $320 ordinary ticket price tag for the recreation alone on Saturday.
