The airfares are listed as one-way to allow for multiple destinations, and airfares are valid in either direction. Domestic airfares include taxes, but not fees such as fuel surcharges, passenger facility charges, segment fees, and passenger security fees. These fees are additional. International airfares are exclusive of taxes and additional fees.
