The last few decades have seen an enormous growth in the air travel. Some people claim that only the privileged people can make use of air travel whereas those with a limited budget take no advantage of this trend. Personally, I believe that both groups of people can reap the benefit of the rising air travel.
Many people believe that the development of air travel can only enrich the richest person's life, and ordinary people benefit nothing from that. From my points of views, there are persuasive reasons to concur to such claims.
Rich people can afford to travel by airplane. Ordinary people cannot get air travel causes of money. I mostly disagree with this. The following paragraphs will be discussed throughout this essay.
In recent years, travelling by planes has been considered as a convenient commuting method around the world. While some people believe that only wealthy people can afford this mean of travelling, I strongly believe that general population can also be beneficial from flying.
While many people argue that travelling by plane is only beneficial for the affluent class, I still believe that not only wealthy people but also ordinary citizens have merits of it.
The Airline industry is thriving in these few decades with more service providers compared with in the past. Some people contend that planes are superior ways of transport, designed for the higher income group, so normal people cannot enjoy the benefits of the prospering airline industry. I partly disagree with this argument.
Air travel has improved significantly over the past two decades. This is, in terms of safety, price and comfort. Earlier only rich could afford air travel. With the impact of competition, global oil prices, consumer behaviour and globalisation, now even middle class and lower middle class too started using air travel. With more consumers each day, flights have been designed to carry more people per trip with more fuel efficiency. Hence the prices have come down in the recent past. Also plane manufactureres have started providing more facilities for inflight passengers.
Air travel is widely used nowadays. Undoubtedly, air travel was used for the upper class a few years ago. While some people argue that only wealthy people are benefited from this, I believe that many airlines companies have offered great promotions so even ordinary people can afford air travel.
Part of the population believes that some methods of transportation, such as air travelling, only benefit wealth people; while others think that the evolution of air travel sector could result in benefits for regular people. This essay will discuss both perspectives and explain why I agree that the development of air travelling can benefit the ordinary people.
