Summer Travel Season Takes Off
Summer Travel Season Takes Off - AZCENTRAL
“Teachers and students aren’t the only ones antsy for summer vacation to begin.
Travelers will descend on airports across the country in big enough numbers today to rank the Friday kickoff to the Memorial Day weekend as the sixth-busiest flying day of the year, according to the trade group Airlines for America — busier than any date during the broad Christmas-New Year’s travel period.
Millions of people will also hop in their cars for a Memorial Day road trip. AAA Travel projects that 31.8 million Americans, including more than 618,000 Arizonans, will drive 50 miles or more from home this weekend. Add in air travelers and the Memorial Day travel totals jump to 34.8 million nationally and more than 701,000 in Arizona.
Arizonans will flock to local resorts, the mountains, Disneyland, Las Vegas and the beaches of Southern California and Mexico, among other destinations”.
