Rising airfare and room rent has pressured Malayalis to reevaluate and also cancel pre-booked holiday packages. Gone are the times when they did not thoughts splurging money to check out new places. Keep alone domestic destinations, there is a fall of almost 30-40% in the traffic to unique international destinations.
