More Canadians are driving across the border to catch U.S. flights because of high costs and security hassles in Canadian airports, USA TODAY reports. Fliers report Canadian airports, with less competition and more taxes, usually are more expensive than nearby airports in the U.S. And long security delays for international flights are only adding to the reasons for driving south. "There's much less hassle and aggravation," says one frequent flier who chooses Buffalo, N.Y., over Toronto for about 50% of his trips. By some estimates, 2.5 million Canadians use U.S. airports each year, and one study predicts 18% of Canadians will travel to the U.S. to fly this year.
