Expensive-flights: London and Madrid against low-cost airlines

Initiative after the Italian Government proposed the introduction of a Price Cap

After the Italian Government's official stance on the issue of expensive flights, now Great Britain and Spain are also trying to understand whether low-cost airlines (Ryanair, Vueling, easyJet and Volotea) are taking advantage of the peaks in travel demand, during the holidays, to unjustifiably raise air ticket fares for passengers. London and Madrid therefore embrace Italy's position against record price increases. 

It was reported by the economic news agency "Bloomberg", which has drawn attention to the debate in Italy, which led to a clash between the Meloni Government and the Irish company. In recent months, the Minister of Business and Made in Italy (Mimit) Adolfo Urso had tried to convince low-cost airlines to review their fare plans, without applying exorbitant increases. 

For this reason, the Italian Council of Ministers recently spoke about the imminent introduction of a Flight Cap, that is a measure to place a ceiling on the prices of airline tickets (200% of the average annual price) for flights between the mainland and the islands major: Sardinia and Sicily. An initiative that had provoked a harsh reaction from Ryanair, which in response threatened to withdraw the offer of the cheapest flights during the winter months.
