Why are the flight prices so cheap in Europe?

It would be better to say ACCESSIBLE. Yes, the prices of airline tickets in Europe are much more affordable in Europe compared to other regions of the world.

Will flight prices in Europe go down in 2022?

This will basically depend on two factors

  • The resumption of tourism and business travel (demand for flights);
  • Travel bans and restrictions imposed by governments.

One thing we know, the restrictions and control measures remain in the medium and long term. The reason for the drop in passenger numbers was the continuing fear of a virus that not much information is yet available (this certainly leaves everyone with a certain fear).

So, for ticket prices to get cheaper will depend directly on the improvement of Covid-19 cases, because then the protective measures will be sent down and the possibility to travel will be easier.
