A study of the cost of return flights to seventy-five holiday destinations from twelve UK regions revealed the average flight price increases by nearly two hundred per cent compared with those departing two weeks later.
The second biggest school holiday mark-up was found to be flying from London to the popular skiing destination of Salzburg, Austria, costing 739 per cent more. The return flight for half-term is priced at £470 per person but just two weeks later, it drops back down to just £56.
Holidaymakers flying from London will be the worst off this half term, paying an average of 272 per cent more for their flights, followed by Nottingham (East Midlands) at 266 per cent and Leeds at 253 per cent.
