Mumbai, Oct 26: With the festive season round the corner both national and international air tickets could get costlier by 5-10 percent.

"This is the time when tourism and personal travel increase. So, air tickets could climb by 5-10 percent between Nov and Feb," said Vimla Dorairaju, head, Mahindra Home Stays and Travel Services.

"In Oct the demand for air travel has increased. But there is also a corresponding capacity addition taking place. So, the increase in fares is not going to be unearthly," said Ankur Bhatia, executive director, travel technology provider Bird Group.

Ankur Bhatia added, "In the routes between India and South-East Asian countries like Malaysia and Bangkok the fares might not go up and where as in the Delhi- London route, fares could go up by 5-10 percent."

In some of the prime sectors like Delhi- Mumbai, Mumbai-Chennai, Mumbai- Bangalore, Delhi-Chennai, Mumbai-Goa, Chennai-Port Blair, Delhi-Jaipur, the air tickets are expected to increase 15-20 percent.
