Return Ticket Prices Are Reasonable

He said that although flight ticket prices to Melbourne fell quite slowly, they also experienced an average decrease of five percent, or AUD 20 or around Rp. 204 thousand in inbound domestic economy fares this week.

“We clearly saw that airlines and hotels reached peak capacity in Sydney and Melbourne when the Eras Tour was underway, and now that this is over and capacity is starting to come back, prices are starting to reflect this (prices are returning to normal),” Walley said.

“There was no bad blood between corporate travelers and Ms Swift, but we are happy to be out of the woods now that this tour is over,” he said.
