It’s the summer of “expensive plane”, double fare for Europe – Ultima Ora

(ANSA) – ROME, May 21 – Those who decide to fly to European destinations will have to put their hands in their wallets and pay fees nearly double compared to last year. This was stated by the company Kodakuns, which denounced the phenomenon of expensive aircraft in Italy.

With the arrival of heat and the increase in the movements of Italians, the prices of airline tickets have risen dramatically – explains the Consumers Union, which has paraphrased the latest data provided by Istat – last month the prices of European flights saw a 91% increase compared to the same period in 2021. Intercontinental flights increased by + 35.7% while prices for domestic flights increased by 15.2%.

It is a general increase in the price of airline tickets also affected by the growth of fuel prices and the consequences of exorbitant bills, and is directly reflected in the pockets of consumers. But increases – warns Codacons – were also recorded on the shipping side: last month, ferry prices increased by +19.4% compared to the same period in 2021.

On the other hand, train ticket prices, which decreased by -9.9% year-on-year, have been reduced as a result of reduced restrictions on trains related to Covid and the return of offers and discounts exercised by companies. (handle).
