20,7% increase in plane ticket prices over one year between Paris and overseas territories


In July, the rise in the price of plane tickets departing from France continued at a sustained pace of 43,5% for all destinations combined over one year compared to July 2021. It was 20,7% for the overseas network -sea. On departure from all overseas departments, the price increase is 21,1%  in July, compared to 23,9% in June.

Compared to two years ago, prices departing from France, all destinations combined, have increased by 14,4% for flights to overseas territories. On departure from overseas, tickets have increased by 16,2% in two years.

Interviewed recently on BFM-TV, the president of Air Caraïbes did not bring good news. “Some (of the cost increase) is still to come,” he said. "For Air Caraïbes and for French bee, even if we have the best planes in terms of consumption per seat, oil represented 30-35% of our costs, we are in the process of going to 45%", explained Marc Rochet. "So, inevitably, there will still be 5 to 10% price increases to come over the winter and next year," he assured.

The company also confirmed that it was suspending its direct rotations between Paris and Sint Maarten from December. According to Guadeloupe 1ère, a reduction in flights could also take place to Martinique. (soualigapost.com)
