Those wanting a cheap getaway now borders have eased are being told to get to it, with airfare price rises all but certain in the near future.

But Dean Long, Chief Executive of the Australian Federation of Travel Agents, said there was currently “insufficient demand” for airlines to justify the higher prices.

“There are currently 7000 seats, a day, flying into Sydney and Melbourne and only 25 per cent of those seats are filled,” he said.

Some industry insiders say airlines will roll out cheaper flights over the next few months to encourage people to travel again before jacking up prices.

But Mr Long said there were laws that would protect passengers from paying through the teeth.
