SPRING BREAK 2022 WILL BE A SHOT IN THE ARM FOR AIRLINES, TOURIST TOWNS


Tourism expert Matthew Jones says airlines can really use --even a temporary-- financial boost as they are still not back to pre-covid lockdown levels of business travelers. Galveston's Chief Tourism Officer Michael Woody says restaurants, locally owned shops, hotels and things to do and see on the island will also benefit greatly. Woody adds that Galveston is was not hurt as badly as other locations. "We're looking at over 300,000 people who will come to The Island [Galveston Island] over a 2-week period."

Woody adds: "During the Covid Lockdown, health officials were says, 'Hey - if you want to go do something: go to the beach!' We're beginning to see that kind of lift in other types of destinations."

Add to it all, many Americans feel they need to seek some fun! Woody says it's going to be great. "From the conversations I have had with colleagues all around the country, all destinations are going to do well this year. We're starting to see people wanting to travel again and we're seeing places opening up!"

The high demand for airline seats is pushing up prices. If you're planning to fly for spring break, ticket sellers say book now, and don't be surprised if prices are getting higher every day!
