According to statista: In 2020 Ryanair's cost were 90€ per passenger! In 2019 it was somewhat over 30€. That happens when an efficient airline gets hit by a plague and travel restrictions. Easyjet had also 90€ per passenger, Wizz 124€, Eurowings 186€ and Norwegian 279€. https://www.statista.com/stat...

my average fare in Europe is approximately 12€. Including flights from Europe to Morocco, Israel, Georgia, Egypt, UAE and Jordan, it should be 15€. It's mostly about flexibility, flying low demand flights and booking around 1-2 months before departure. (Double) fork flights can be also a good option.
