ROME, MAY 21 – Those who decide to travel by plane to reach European destinations will have to put their wallets in hand and pay fares almost doubled compared to last year. This was stated by Codacons, which denounced the phenomenon of expensive aircraft in Italy. With the arrival of the heat and the increase in the movements of Italians, the prices of airline tickets have skyrocketed – explains the consumer association, which has reworked the latest data provided by Istat – Flight fares in the last month Europeans have undergone an increase of + 91% compared to the same period of 2021. Intercontinental flights have increased by + 35.7% while the price of domestic ones is up by 15.2%. It is a generalized increase in air fares that is also affected by the growth in fuel prices and the consequences of expensive bills, and is directly reflected in the pockets of consumers. But increases – warns the Codacons – are also recorded on the side of maritime transport: in the last month the ferry fares have increased by + 19.4% compared to the same period of 2021. On the other hand, the prices of railway tickets are reduced, which fall by -9.9% on an annual basis, as an effect of the lower limitations on trains linked to Covid and the return of offers and discounts practiced by the companies.
