Travel Increases In Spite Of Tragedy and Recession

There was a time, not too long ago, when travelers casually sipped from their water bottles and their shoes remained snuggly on their feet when going through the security checkpoint at airports. Now those days are just a memory. The travel experience has changed, and for the worse, since 2001. Despite the changes, travel has only increased in the years since the terrorist attack. According to the U.S. Bureau of Transportation Statistics, U.S. air travel saw an elevated influx to 769.6 million passengers in 2007, which was 100 million above the amount of Americans that took to the air in 2000. Travel has even continued to increase regardless of the recession. The reasons why more Americans are traveling vary but the price has definitely helped the increase travelling. Other reasons for travel include families being spread out and job related travel. Though the recession may have hurt Americans pocketbooks airplane travel is still being utilized.
