HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville International no longer tops the list as the most expensive airport in the country, but there's a catch. 

The reason Huntsville International didn't make the top stop is because passenger travel fell last year, according to a report by the Bureau of Transportation Statistics.

The study only looked at the top 100 airports with the highest domestic passenger travel.

Since this study reports that passenger travel fell at Huntsville International last year, that's why they're not included in the top 100.

In this report, Cincinnati, Ohio's airport had the most expensive airfare, with an average of $514 for a ticket.

Huntsville's average was around $563.

If you look at all 439 airports that the Bureau of Transportation ranked, Huntsville came in at 114 in terms of passenger travel, but it still ranked at the top of the list with some of the highest airfares.

Earlier this month, at a Huntsville-Madison County Airport Authority meeting, officials said that passenger travel was up by about three percent from this time last year.
