Travel Prices for Super Regionals

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) – The Diamond Hogs have clinched their ticket to super regionals in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

However, due to airline pricing, Razorback fans in Arkansas will have a much harder time supporting the team.

Marsha Fuller is a local travel consultant here in Fayetteville. She says for a family of two looking to compete in super regionals; you should be prepared to pay around $2,000 in airfare alone.

“We haven’t had a lot of calls for flights to super-regionals, which is very shocking,” Fuller says.

Alex English of Northwest Arkansas National Airport says gas prices, pilot shortages and overall demand play a role in those prices.

However, she thinks it may be more than airline prices that play into people’s ability to get to super-regionals.

She says that even before the Razorbacks beat OSU, there might not have been any airplane seats available.

“Many of these flights are already full; our availability is limited because we don’t have as many seats available due to pilot shortages,” says English.

We did the math for anyone wanting to make the 15 hour trip from Fayetteville.

An average sedan will set you back $350 round trip, gas prices being what they are; an SUV will be in the $640 range.

It would be above a hotel if you can’t drive 15 hours in a day and the average ticket price of $320 for the game itself on Saturday.
