Airplane ticket prices in Europe and Asia are not going up much now. But airlines still have high costs.

After COVID, many people want to travel, so prices go up. Now, people care more about prices. Ryanair is a low-cost airline. Ryanair’s boss says that prices will not rise much anymore. In Asia, ticket prices go down by 16% this year. But prices are still higher than in 2019. Experts think that prices will be normal in 2024.

Europeans look for cheaper places to visit. But Americans still spend a lot on travel. This situation is because many Americans have jobs. The travel industry thinks that prices will be normal soon.

Difficult words: costs (the money which you need to buy something), low-cost (cheap), normal (usual, not special).
