Why is My Hawaii Airfare so Expensive?

Airlines used to have seat sales, but as they’ve bounced in and out of bankruptcy, plus the impact of recent airline mergers, the U.S. now has only three major international carriers.

What’s the impact to you as a traveler? Did you know airlines pay landing fees every time they land at an airport – similar to pay parking for your car?  Part of those taxes goes to maintaining airports, much like some of your vehicle registration and gas tax helps pay for road maintenance.

Think of the burdens airlines have been under: increased oil and gas prices, the economic down turn, forces of nature –the winter of 2011 and 2010’s eruption of the Iceland Volcano – are recent examples.  Airlines bear hard costs for associated delays and cancellations. After all, if public transit is late getting you to an appointment, do you demand a credit or new ticket?

Consider the ease with which you travel 5,000 miles in less than a day – to the start of your dream vacation. It’s worth it!

In my next blog, I’ll tell you how can reduce the cost of your airline ticket.
