Summer air fares expected to rise

By Jim Wallace - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Georgia travel experts say it's time to get organized and get busy if you want the lowest airfares for your summer vacation.

Airlines are expected to increase prices in the coming weeks, as more travelers start book seats to vacation destinations.

Thursday most major U.S. airlines rolled back a Monday fare increase of up to $120 per round trip on tickets favored by business travelers.

Albany's airport director says if you want the best price, you had better book soon.

Southwest Georgia Regional Airport Director Yvette Aehle said "Obviously supply and demand. Like everything always is with the airlines. If there is not a lot of seats to be sold, the seat price is going to go up. And also the fuel prices that are spiking at this point."

Travel experts say you can find some fare bargains through the Internet or social media. Frequent searches for "air fare alert" to see what pops up, and also follow the airlines on Twitter and Face book, to keep track of cheap fares that might occur without much notice.
