Flight comparison website Kiwi.com released its 2017 Aviation Price Index on Thursday, showing how flight costs stack up in countries around the world.

The site analyzed the costs of more than 1 million flights from 80 countries to determine which destinations offer the cheapest and most expensive domestic and international flights.

The study looked at both low-cost and full-service airlines and both peak and off-peak travel dates to calculate average ticket costs per 100 kilometers of travel.

Malaysia was the cheapest, with an average flight cost of $4.18 per 100 kilometers, thanks to particularly cheap international flights on low-cost carriers, and cheap domestic fares. Bulgaria came in second, and India, Turkey, and Romania followed behind.

Belgium had the most expensive overall average for flights, at $54.63 per 100 kilometers. Chile had the most expensive average costs for domestic flights with full-service carriers at $152.01, followed by Qatar at $102.32.

When it came to international flights aboard full-service carriers, the Netherlands had the highest average cost at $43.24, followed by the United Arab Emirates at $49.13.

For domestic flights, Kiwi.com looked at average flight costs from the country’s capital to up to five major cities within the country, or to a major city in a neighboring country when domestic flights were not available. International flight costs were based on flights from all of the international airports within the country to up to five international hubs.
