Airfares Rise Owing to the Busy Travel Season Ahead

U.S. Airfares have risen up by now. Southwest Airlines, which has been hugely popular for resisting the rise in prices, have also increased the prices of 180,000 individual fares by $5 few days back. And this is the case with a lot of U.S. routes, for which there has been a hike of $5 earlier this week.

The hike by Southwest Airlines came as a shock to many. The airline analyst of J.P Morgan, Jamie Baker, shared, “We’ve never met a Southwest-blessed fare increase that didn’t ultimately stick at the industry level. Extensive matching has already occurred, including at Alaska, Delta and United.”

With the travel fares rising, companies are facing huge profits because this is a very busy travel season. People have not yet succumbed to the rise of fares, giving the companies a huge chance to make big. In addition to the companies, people are also finding great online travel business opportunity through the airlines industry as travel agents.

Hopper, a popular travel website that tracks airfares, predicted the average domestic round trip ticket to rise from $229 in April to $240 by June. Though the prices are rising, the overall airfare is still low as compared to the prices few years ago. And that has been providing people with major relief. Some major reasons that can be attributed to low prices over the years are intensive competition and expansion of ultra low cost carriers.

Russian lawmakers have proposed to make it mandatory for internet users to verify their identity with phone numbers before gaining access to email. The State Duma has already made such a rule that put the same restrictions on the use of all instant messengers. The team of lawmakers led by senators Andrey Klishah and Alexander Bashkin, have also proposed to make it mandatory for email services to block messages containing any information that is banned in Russia. This action needs to take place within 24 hours from the time the state authorities notify of the issue.

The draft law’s explanatory note claims, “The adoption of this legislation will significantly reduce the number of false terrorist messages distributed through email services, create the legal conditions for bringing criminals to justice, and reduce the economic damage from such communications.”

The new email verification law will stop cyber crimes in the country and will provide hassle-free Internet service to Russians. Russia’s RuNet isolation law was also passed earlier this year. Senates Klisha and Bashkin were the co-authors of this law. The legislation is now allowing Russia’s federal authorities to command and take control over Russia’s Internet exchange points with the outside world. Russia can not create an infrastructure with the help of this theoretical law to make the country’s internet operate in isolation from the rest of the world. Russia government’s official censor, Roskomnadzor is authorized for running sustainable and safe internet services in the country.
