When asked about air travel plans for 2020, 34 percent of respondents plan on traveling more for leisure than in 2019. Business travel will see less of a hike with just 15 percent of respondents noting they would be traveling more often for work 2020.
More than 420 people participated in the survey conducted by The GO Group, LLC, the nation's largest airport transportation provider serving more than 85 airports worldwide, including many of those served by the now shuttered Super Shuttle.
These numbers differ from those received from a similar survey conducted last year, in which 24 percent of those who answered said they would be traveling more for leisure and 20 percent more for business in 2019 vs. 2018.
Just 6 percent of this year's survey participants said they planned less leisure travel in 2020 while 16 percent percent will be traveling less for business – a significant change when compared with 5 percent in last year's survey.
Fifty and 37 percent of respondents plan on traveling about the same amount for leisure and business this year, respectively. Nine percent said they weren't sure about leisure plans yet, and 24 percent weren't sure about business travel activity.
"We can surmise from these results that people continue to remain confident in the current booming economy and their job security, leaving more time for vacations, specifically via planes," said John McCarthy, president of The GO Group, in a written statement.
