MALLORCA TODAY - Taxis, buses and airlines look at increasing their prices
With the rising cost of oil, transport providers in Mallorca are considering ways of dealing with this increase. While airlines such as Air Berlin and Air Europa, facing a 30% rise in costs, have already decided to place a surcharge on the price of a ticket, local transport operators are hoping to be able to avoid having to pass on the increase by pressing for a subsidised "professional" petrol/diesel tariff. Public transport buses and also the coach operators for transfers and excursions face having to absorb or pass on a 15% rise.
