Airfare predicted to rise in 2010

This may be a good excuse to finally take that trip you’ve been dying to take, and to take it soon. Airfares, which have been deeply discounted on account of the recession, are likely to rise next year along with the health of the Canadian economy as a whole. More jobs and more business transactions means more demand for air travel, and with Air Canada having just barely escaped being forced again to enter bankruptcy protection, the company will need all the money it can raise from that expected increase in demand. Also keep your eyes on the price of gas: higher petroleum prices typically mean higher airfare, and could conceivably mean the return of domestic-flight fuel surcharges.
