JACKSON, Miss. – Around three million people are expected to fly during the Forth of July weekend.
Fuel prices are as low as they’ve been in years, while demand is at its highest level since 2008. Rick Seaney is an Airfare Expert and CEO of FareCompare, he says since demand is so high and people have more money to spend, due to low fuel prices, airline prices will continue to rise. He added that airlines aren’t adding more planes to the sky, just adding more zeros to your ticket.
If you’ve flow out of Mississippi you know how expensive flights are. Just a round trip ticket from Jackson to Atlanta will cost you over $400. Seaney says, Mississippi flights are so expensive due to the lack of competition among airlines in the Magnolia State.
