air travel can only benefit the richest people in the world. The ordinary people can get no advantage with the development of air travel. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
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. On the one hand, it is true that the rich has more privilege to travel by air. Firstly, the expenses that airline operators have to pay for qualified staffs, modern equipment and intensive marketing could add up to the price of the flying tickets. Therefore, people who have low-income may find it difficult to afford this method of travelling. Furthermore, there are a variety of travelling methods that could cater the needs of commuters, depends of their financial affordability. For example, travellers can choose to travel by trains, trams or personal vehicles to travel interstates. On the other hand, there are various ways for travellers get their cheap flying tickets. Firstly, different airline operators have introduced their low-price flights which could be easily purchased online. Due to the intense competitions in the market, business owners are trying to offer consumers with variety of options to invite them to choose their services. Secondly, different airlines continously have their promotion to get discount on the tickets. Therefore, people with low-budget can efficiently benefit from these promotions. In conclusion, while there are debates about whether air travel only benefits the high-income people, I would argue that people with low-income have other ways to commute by air.
