This is mainly due the ever increasing fuel costs, government taxes and airport security fees. Also, many airports limit the number of handling agents that can operate at an airport. So, handling agents have beefed up their prices.
Rodd, your ticket still costs 500-600 pounds. Probably less, but will all the above extras on top you will pay over 1000 quid.
