Costs plane and simple

MOVES to make sure airlines clearly display the cost of flights on their websites have been welcomed by the industry regulator.

The Civil Aviation Authority said most airlines had agreed to display airfares in a clear way, including all charges up front.

The CAA's Iain Osborne said: "The difference between the price holidaymakers might see when they first search for a flight and the lowest price actually available can be 100 or more for a family of four."
