Officials Optimistic About Holiday Travel

With Thanksgiving only a month away, signaling the beginning of the holiday season, airport officials are optimistic over air travel conditions, despite heightened security measures. A survey by Tauck World Discovery, a CT-based escorted tour, cruise and safari operator, of the United States' busiest airports found that 89 percent of airports anticipate crowds and delays will be at the same level or better than 2005. The survey was based on responses from 18 of the nation's highest-passenger volume airports in 2005. "Only two of the airports surveyed said that overall conditions will be worse than last year," said Robin Tauck, Tauck's president and CEO. Further, only a few airports suggested travelers arrive earlier than normal for flights over the Thanksgiving holiday.
