Half-term airfares cost 42% higher than before the outbreak.

According to consumer group Which?, the average price of a one-way ticket for the October school break was £212, compared to £150 for the same period in 2019.

According to a new analysis, half-term airfares are 42% more expensive than before the coronavirus outbreak.

According to consumer organization Which?, the average price of a one-way ticket booked six months, three months, and six weeks in advance for the October school vacation week was £212, compared to £150 for the same period in 2019.

It is believed that rising gasoline prices, pent-up desire for travel, and airport passenger quotas are responsible for the surge.

Which? Flights from six of England’s busiest airports – Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester, Stansted, Luton, and Birmingham – to six popular destinations – Alicante, Antalya, Dubai, Dublin, Malaga, and Tenerife – were analyzed using data from Skytra.

The editor of Which? Travel, Guy Hobbs, stated: “This year has been a nightmare for travelers, and according to our analysis, they are paying through the nose for it.

“With rates being so high, it is even more crucial that airports and airlines be held accountable for the inexcusable disruptions that passengers have experienced.

The government should grant the Civil Aviation Authority more authority so that it may levy hefty fines against operators who violate the laws.
