Giving Thanks and Flying Away!
Thanksgiving Day is here and today we will gather among family and friends to celebrate the harvest and other blessings throughout the year. From the Thanksgiving tradition of the 1621 harvest feast shared by the pilgrims and the Wampanoag people to a tradition to travel as the holiday in the US has become one of the busiest travel days of the year.
This year, as restrictions continue to lift and consumer confidence builds, it is said that Thanksgiving travel in 2021 in the US is to rebound almost to pre-pandemic levels. In fact, in a published article, AAA predicts more than 53.4 million people are expected to travel, the highest single-year increase since 2005. While reconnecting with friends and family has become the main reason for travel and Orlando, New York, and Dallas are among the top U.S. destinations, Americans are also booking getaways internationally such as Cancun, Aruba, and other Caribbean destinations. Also, Dublin and Paris are among the top international choices among travelers this year.
AAA mentions that “Airports and roads may seem jam-packed this year as AAA predicts 53.4 million people to travel for the Thanksgiving holiday, up 13% from 2020.” This brings travel volumes within 5% of pre-pandemic levels in 2019, with air travel almost completely recovering from its dramatic fall during the pandemic, up 80% over last year.
For us in the travel industry we are excited to see people once again traveling, especially when people get to visit their family and relatives ; So whether you are traveling or not this Thanks Giving weekend we want to wish you great holidays!
Enjoy your family and get togethers, stay safe, and don´t forget that last days of Black month is also here so don´t miss out on our offers.
