Increase in air fares

I travelled a few times this year and made by own booking through the internet. Recently, I found that the price of the air tickets had gone up, and that the planes are more full.

The increase in air fares is due to two reasons:

* cost of fuel has increased (leading to higher fuel surcharges)
* the airlines had increased their fares due to high demand and lower capacity

The delay in the delivery of air buses had led to a shortage of planes. As travel increased, the planes are getting more passengers. This has given the chance for the airlines to increase their fares.

Lesson: I have decided to reduce my travel this year, due to the high prices. I will do my business by telephone through Skype.
