December 23, 2021
Americans who had to cancel getaways and get-togethers last year are making up for lost time this holiday season. AAA projects more than 109 million people — an almost 34 percent increase from 2020 — will travel 50 miles or more as they hit the road, board airplanes or take other transportation out of town between Dec. 23 and Jan. 2.
That dramatic bounce-back — 27.7 million more people traveling — will bring this year’s numbers to 92 percent of 2019 levels. Airlines will see a 184 percent increase from last year.
