Cost of fuel = higher ticket prices

With the cost of fuel constantly on the rise, and airlines such as Ryanair announcing the devastating effects that fuel prices are having on their profits, will this price be passed onto the consumer? And will it put us off going on holiday?

British Airways hiked its fuel price surcharges twice last month, taking the fuel levy for a one-way flight up from £30 to £109. However, at the same time, Ryanair has announced the release of 500,000 new seats for £10 and has vowed never to introduce a fuel surcharge.

But this is not a trend that all budget airlines are following, and the price of a ticket is not the only problem travellers are likely to come across. BMIbaby, which flies to fourteen destinations across the UK and Europe, is considering cutting flights because of the dramatic rise in fuel bills.

So not only could passengers be expected to pay more for their flights, but if they are prepared to part with a few extra pounds they may have trouble finding a flight in the first place. And although Ryanair has promised never to charge us a fuel surcharge, it already has a charge for checking in.

But will this put us off booking our annual week in the sun? Well, budget airlines are a relatively new phenomenon, which have made it easier for everybody to afford a yearly getaway. And we must remember that consumers are already suffering from the fuel hikes at the petrol pumps, so we are all already a little shorter on cash.

Perhaps we should make the most of budget travel whilst we can and before they all go bust. Then all we can hope for in England is a long, hot, Indian summer to keep us all happy.
