What You Need To Know Before You Fly

Air travel is taking off (pun intended). Fueled by a combination of wanderlust after staying home for the past year and the comfort of knowing you are safe after being vaccinated, Americans are ready to fly again. During the height of the Spring Break season, more than a million passengers were passing through U.S. airports each day. And interest in summer travel is building, with some popular leisure destinations already sold out for the entire season. If you are planning to fly again soon, don’t expect the experience to be the way it was before the COVID-19 pandemic. The New York Times says these are the five biggest changes you should know about before you go:

  1. Planes will be fuller, possibly getting close to pre-pandemic levels
  2. Airfares will likely increase
  3. Cancellation and change fees are coming back
  4. Masks will still be required, but onboard food service may return
  5. More routes to leisure destinations are being introduced
