Online travel agency Kiwi.com has produced their annual ranking detailing the cost of air travel in 80 countries. Kiwi.com undertook the research in order to help make travelers aware of countries that offer good opportunities for affordable travel. Following on from the findings of last year’s Flight Price Index, this round also tracks the changes in the industry, providing a compelling insight into the fluctuating price of air travel around the world.

To calculate the rankings, Kiwi.com analyzed over a million flights to find an average price of short-haul and long-haul flights on low cost and full service airlines from each of the countries. Domestic flights were calculated by finding an average airfare from the country’s capital to up to five major cities within the country, or to a major city nearby in a neighboring country when no domestic flights were available. The price of international travel was calculated based on flights from all international airports within the country, to several international hubs. All flights were checked for the same dates of travel taking into account high and low seasons.

The most affordable country is Malaysia, averaging a flight cost of $4.18 per 100 km of travel. At the other end of the ranking, Belgium calculated at a cost over 13 times higher, at $54.63 per 100 km of travel. Turkey placed in position 58 in 2016’s ranking.

The study revealed the 10 countries with the most affordable flights per 100 km:
