U.s. Carriers Forecasting Strong Spring

By Expert Author: www.cheapfares.com

While cheap airplane tickets and cheap vacation packages have encouraged many to fly, a very tough winter has made that difficult for some. Fortunately the weather is getting better and predictions call for a record number of passengers flying this spring.

Over 129 million people (2.1 million per day) are expected to take domestic flights in March and April, according to Airlines for America, an industry trade group that represents nine domestic carriers.

An additional 17.1 million people are forecasted to take international flights on U.S. airlines in March and April.

The increase in spring air travel is being attributed to the rising U.S. household net worth, an improving economy, and the overall affordability of air travel. The first two months of this year were very difficult for airlines as travel was negatively impacted by a series of snow storms and bitter cold.

Year to date over 78,000 flights have been cancelled, costing the airlines tens of millions of dollars. As rough as the winter weather has been, it has had little impact on the overall profitability of U.S. airlines.

U.S. airlines have been able to remain profitable because the percentage of seats filled on planes has remained relatively high and the airlines continued ability to collect several billion dollars annually in ancillary fees.
