It's expensive jet summer, for Europe fares have doubled
With the advent of heat and increased movement, airline ticket prices have skyrocketed. Those who decide to travel by plane to reach European destinations this summer will have to think twice. The end of the pandemic and the liberation from anticovid measures seem to have caused such an influx of travel requests this summer season causing an extreme increase in plane tickets from almost all companies. Citizens everywhere are facing tariffs almost doubled compared to last year.
Flight fares in the last month for Europeans have increased by 91% compared to the same period in 2021. Intercontinental flights have also increased by 35.7%. It is a general increase in air fares that is also affected by rising fuel prices and the consequences of expensive bills and is directly reflected in consumer pockets. But increases have also been recorded in shipping. Last month ferry fares increased by 19.4% compared to the same period of 2021.
