Airfares rising at San Jose International Airport

SAN JOSE, Calif.

ABC7 media partner, the San Jose Mercury News reports that average fares rose 12 percent in San Jose, but the price has fallen by 8 percent at SFO.

Mineta San Jose airport officials say the airport's $1.3 billion modernization project is not to blame. They say the recession is impacting them much more than SFO.

Analysts say Mineta International has decreased the number of available flights causing the prices to rise for the limited available seats.
