U.S. airlines to fly estimated 257.4 million passengers from June to Aug 19’; A4A

Published on : Tuesday, May 21, 2019

U.S. airlines will fly a record 257.4 million passengers between June 1 and Aug. 31, as per the Airlines for America (A4A). It’s a 10th  consecutive rise in late-spring and peak summer air travel. The growth has been attributed to strong economy and job market. A4A is the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines.

 

 

 

On an average, about 2.8 million travellers will fly per day.  Airlines are scrambling to keep up with demand as Boeing 737 Max planes remain grounded.As per the trade group, the airlines are adding 111,000 seats per day to accommodate the additional 93,000 daily passengers expected during the summer travel period.

 

 

 

 

As per John Heimlich, A4A Vice President and Chief Economist, air travel is the nation’s safest form of transportation, and it is now more affordable than ever before. U.S. carriers are making airline flights more and more accessible, helping more and more Americans are flying.

 

 

 

According to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, inflation-adjusted air fares declined for a fourth consecutive year in 2018.

 

 

 

With a series of strikes, computer glitches and grounding of Boeing 737 creating ripples in the aviation sector, it is to be seen whether record number of passengers will fly the U.S. airlines this summer.

 

 

 

 

Some airports are pushing for airport tax. A4A believes that annual airport revenues have reached an all-time high of U.S. dollars 30 billion and does not need tax.
