Airfares increase ahead of holidays

Domestic airfares have skyrocketed above pre-pandemic levels, the ACCC found, with the average revenue per passenger 27 per cent higher in October compared to three years ago.

“Airfares have risen due to strong demand for travel and constrained supply as airlines have scaled back their schedules in response to high jet fuel costs and operational challenges,” ACCC Commissioner Anna Brakey said.

Discounted economy fares have increased the most due to fewer flights and strong demand.
