Qantas has raised fares on 14 domestic routes by $10 per sector as the airline attempts to recover some of the yield lost due to the weakness in the economy.
The airline recently issued a message to travel agents noting that the increase was across all fare classes. A spokesman told The Age newspaper that it was “just part of our periodic review of fares”, and comes after the airline made adjustments to its fare levels this year which appear to have stuck despite the increased competition in the domestic market.
While the increase will help to boost the airline’s yields, Qantas CEO Alan Joyce has earlier remarked that it needs to see an improvement in its international yields which have been particularly hard hit as other airlines cut fares to stimulate demand.
