Air travel can only benefit the richest people in the world. The ordinary people can get no advantage with the development of air travel. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
It is not uncommon that air plane is increasingly popular when people choose to travel abroad or to some tourist attraction. However, some people believe that to travel by airplane Is expensive and thus air travel can only benefit the wealthy people From my perspective, I think whether this idea is justifiable should be analyzed from several perspectives.
Granted, to travel by air Is comparatively expensive due to its considerable consumption of fuel and exceeding services. Back to the past, most people were unable to afford the prohibitively high price. Only a minority of people can enjoy the luxurious experience. As a matter of fact, however, businessmen benefit from immense
convenience and efficiency that air travel has brought about, resulting in promoting trade and improving their income.
On the other hand, the development of technology and economy has substantially improved people’s affordability, rendering air travel a widely acceptable and accessible means of transportation. That is to say, an increasing number of people stand a chance for air travel when they travel abroad. Besides, cheap flights have made it possible for the poor along with decreases of tax and airport construction fee.
In conclusion, in the past, air travel was regarded as a privilege of few people, however, nowadays, this case have been changed — air travel is beneficial to more people no matter she/he Is rich or poor.
