Airline industry bracing for summer travel surge



Published May 16, 2023, 12:20 p.m. by Liam Bradley


As the summer travel season approaches, the airline industry is bracing for a surge in demand.

airlines are expecting a busy summer travel season, with a nearly 10 percent increase in demand compared to last year. The industry is preparing for the influx of passengers by adding more flights and hiring more staff.

The increase in demand is being driven by a strong economy and low airfares. airlines have been able to keep fares low by filling more seats on each flight and using more fuel-efficient aircraft.

With more people traveling this summer, airlines are expecting delays and cancellations to increase. Passengers are being urged to plan ahead and be prepared for disruptions.

Here are some tips to make your summer travel smoother:

-Check the weather forecast before you leave and pack accordingly.

-Allow extra time for check-in and security screening.

-Check your airline’s website or app for flight information and updates.

-If your flight is delayed or cancelled, be patient and follow the airline’s instructions.

-If you need to change your travel plans, contact your airline or travel agent as soon as possible.
