AIR travellers face devastating price rises as airlines struggle to recoup their losses from disruption caused by the volcanic ash cloud and soaring fuel bills.

A report out yesterday revealed that last week’s flight ban cost airlines £1.3billion and, combined with a recent surge in oil prices, many of them face a battle to survive.

As a result they are expected to put up fares by 5.2 per cent this year, costing travellers a total of £1.8billion or £48 per passenger. By 2012, prices are expected to have risen by 11.5 per cent.
