High Demand for Cheap European Airfare Increases Prices

Nov 9, 2007
There is currently a high demand for air travel availability between the Mediterranean and the UK and vice versa. There is also an increase in people spending their holiday relaxing in the sun in places like Majorca and Menorca.

Flights from the Mediterranean to London have reportedly been sold out on several occasions. The demand for these bookings required companies like EasyJet to raise their prices and remain competitive with British airways and other traditional carriers.

EasyJet was founded on the principles of providing low cost flights for everyday people to make travelling abroad affordable. EasyJet has been known as a budget airline and until recently they have been able to keep their costs low for customers.

Affordable Airline Prices Raised Demand for Airline Tickets

In effect, EasyJet achieved their goal and made traveling on holiday to hotspots like Majorca and Menorca a reality for many people. The number of people traveling back and forth between such hotspots in the Mediterranean and cities within Europe has increased in recent years.

Unfortunately, achieving that goal is one of the reasons that EasyJet is being forced to raise their airfare prices for tickets to and from the Mediterranean. With flights being sold out and other airlines that British Airways selling tickets at full price, EasyJet was unable to remain a competitor with its notoriously low prices.

Low-Cost Flights to Majorca

Majorca and Menorca are just two of the hotspots that Europeans are visiting more often on holiday. Low-cost flights have made traveling to Majorca a reality for people who otherwise would not have dreamed of spending their holidays there. Majorca is getting more attention these days as people prefer to spend their holidays unwinding on the beach and soaking up the sun.

What people usually realize, however, is that Majorca is about much more than sand and sun. Flights landing in Majorca will arrive at the Palma de Mallorca airport, just 8 km east of Palma. Palma and surrounding areas are rich with cultural and historical sites, activities and attractions. There is plenty to do for traveler who wants more than a tan for a souvenir of their holiday in Majorca.

Attractions in Majorca

If beaches are your idea of the perfect vacation, then there are more than 80 beaches from which to take your pick. You may choose from quiet remote settings to crowded yet beautiful sandy beaches with clean blue water.

Palma itself is a very popular holiday destination. The Cathedral in Palma is a very popular site to see with its impressive structure. It attracts visitors from all over Majorca.

More active travelers may find exploring the limestone caves of Majorca more their style. Aside from curiosity, another reason to visit the caves is to escape the hot sun of Majorca. You can easily make a day of it; hiking and climbing to reach Germanic rock to enjoy the scenic view out over the sea.

For those on holiday with their families, Marineland offers tropical fish, penguin, sharks, a parrot show, birds, reptile, and most popular, the dolphin and sea lion shows.

Increase in Demand Means an Increase in Prices

Though there has been a large increase in people taking their holiday in Majorca, a high demand for cheap airline tickets is causing an increase in prices. For Majorcan residents who depend on tourism, the hope is that even if the prices are raised, visitors will continue to flood the Mediterranean area.
