So airlines would try to fill their planes, to keep their routes, by lowering the prices hugely.  A minimum ticket price may get support in Holland from parties on the left.  .Tweet   Norwegian union pushes minimum plane ticket price in reaction to Wizz Air’s low-cost routes BY: ROBIN-IVAN CAPAR (Norway Today) 13th OCTOBER 2020 The Norwegian Pilots’ Association believes it may be worthwhile to see if a minimum price for airline tickets can be set in the country.
