A person has to go to New york from Washington by plane and he has ticket for this coming sunday(01/31/2016) but in the last moment his friend tells him that a function or a party is going to be held on monday. Now this person regrets that he has bought ticket for sunday, he could have stayed here for one more week.

Does he need to say "If I had known this I would have bought ticket for one week from now" or "I should have bought ticket for one week after from the ticket date"?

See above. Tufguy, I cannot believe that we are still having to correct your capitalisation and article usage. OK, article usage is quite difficult for some people but you absolutely must know by now that we capitalise the days of the week and all the words in the name of a town/city/country.

"If I had known this I would have bought a/my ticket for one week from now." OK

"I should have bought ticket for one week after from the ticket date"? You need an article before "ticket". The part after "week" is garbled.

You could write "I should have bought a ticket for one week later."
