With the prospect of another round of Covid travel restrictions in Europe looming, Americans are preparing to hit the road for the holidays. This season 44% of US adults plan to take a trip, up from 35% in 2020, according to survey research firm Morning Consult. Those younger and wealthier are more likely to pack their bags, with 55% of Generation Z and 60% of those earning at least USD 100,000 planning to travel. Recent US airport data also shows strong growth, with passenger screenings over the last week up 122% versus the same period in 2020, and just 11% below the same period in 2019.
