U.S. based airlines should expect happy times this spring season

by amit.uniyal 7. March 2014 11:14

The airline industry across the United States should look forward to some happy times during this spring. If reports are to be believed than the airlines, operating service to different destinations within the country should start preparing themselves to cater to heavy passenger flow this spring season. More passengers are expected to fly this season than in the last six years. This is an excellent opportunity for the airlines too, as these passengers will surely bring revenues and profits along.

However, not all that glitters is gold. Though the heavy passenger flow is set to bring money, on the other hand, it will set lot more challenges for them to cope with. Forecasts released by trade groups suggest that most of the airlines within the country will fly about 129.5 million passengers to various gateways between March and April this year. This number is certainly incredible. The largest number of 133.7 million for the same period was achieved in the year 2008. Last year a total of 128.2 million passengers flew to various cities during the same period.

Of these passengers, an astounding 17.1 million passengers will fly with airlines based in the country to destinations outside its boundaries. This is indeed an amazing number when it comes to international travelers on U.S. airlines for the spring period. Researchers believe that improving economic conditions and affordable airfares are two prime factors responsible for this change. Even though the air tickets prices were on the higher side last year, they are still better in comparison to bus, car, or train travel on the domestic circle. In addition, the overall condition of the airline industry improved last year and it recorded profits triggering a chain reaction.
