ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Industry forecasters are warning those with summer vacation flight plans, airfare will be up because of the demand for seats.

Many airlines have held their costs by not putting as many planes in the air.

 

 

Yesterday in Albany, the first two flights were overbooked. Airport Director Yvette Aehle says if you're expecting to find that vacant row of seats on your plane you're out of luck.  

 

"People are starting to travel more and also to compare Albany with other airports and that flying out of Albany does create some advantages that we have less security lines here, we have a cheaper travel cost," said Aehle.

Aehle says Albany's fares have been very competitive with fares out of Atlanta to Albany's top ten destinations. She also reminds frequent fliers Atlanta's parking fees are going up.

She says if you notice an airfare that's out of line for other markets let her know and she can contact Delta to check on it.
