Record Number of Travelers Expected during the Holiday Season this Year; Los Angeles International Airport will be the Busiest
The winter breeze and dipping temperatures are reminders of the holiday season that's just around the corner. However, travelers who expect a quite travelling season can be disheartened as, roads as well as airports are expected to be very busy this year.
A huge number of travelers are expected and the bad weather might just cause delay and chaos. Last year, the holiday season noted 98.6 million Americans traveling and for the current year, the numbers are expected to rise further.
The lower oil prices will bring more travelers on the road during the Thanksgiving weekend so it is quite likely that there will be congestion on the highways.
Los Angeles International Airport is expected to be busiest airport in the nation with 2.1 million passengers and that's a record number. An annual estimate of the officials say, during the period November 20th to 30th, the airport will be the busiest with travelers flying out and coming in.
On Tuesday, Mayor Eric Garcetti said at a news conference, "As more people choose to work, visit, study and play in Los Angeles, LAX keeps on breaking records. L. A. is a world-class destination for visitors from around the globe, and this is great news for our local economy."
