WASHINGTON – The Air Transport Association of America (ATA), the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, announced today that it expects 43.6 million passengers to travel on U.S.

WASHINGTON – The Air Transport Association of America (ATA), the industry trade organization for the leading U.S. airlines, announced today that it expects 43.6 million passengers to travel on U.S. carriers over the upcoming winter holidays, up approximately 3 percent from the 42.3 million passengers(1) estimated to have flown during the same period in 2009.

Daily passenger volumes are expected to range from 1.7 million to 2.3 million during the holiday. The busiest days are expected to be Dec. 21-23, Dec. 26-30 and Jan. 2 and 3, based on sample data from the 2009 winter holiday period. On the busiest days, average load factors may approach 90 percent.

“With demand for air travel showing signs of improvement, airlines are hoping to see industry profitability continue into 2011,” said ATA President and CEO James C. May. “A sustained return of industry profits would enable the kind of investment that will benefit air transportation for the long term, which would help everyone.”

ATA is expecting the federal government, once again, to open up Special Activity Airspace (SAS) on an as-needed basis to help ease congestion, especially as we face winter weather. SAS also was made available over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Der Mai ermutigte die Passagiere, Licht einzupacken, ihren Flugstatus vor dem Abflug zum Flughafen zu überprüfen und daran zu denken, früh anzureisen, um genügend Zeit für das Einchecken und die Sicherheitsüberprüfung zu haben.

Darüber hinaus empfiehlt ATA den Passagieren, auf ihrer Ressourcenseite empfohlene Reisetipps zu konsultieren. Insbesondere werden die Passagiere aufgefordert, Folgendes zu beachten:

It is strongly recommended that all passengers review the website of the airline on which they are flying for respective policies, amenities, customer-service plans and flight-operation alert notifications.

Wenn Reservierungen vor dem 1. November vorgenommen wurden, sollten sich Passagiere 72 Stunden vor der Ankunft am Flughafen mit ihrer Fluggesellschaft oder Buchungsquelle in Verbindung setzen, um sicherzustellen, dass ihr vollständiger Name, Geburtsdatum, Geschlecht und Redress-Nummer (falls zutreffend) als Teil von . angegeben sind ihre Reservierungen gemäß den Anforderungen des Secure Flight-Programms der Transportation Security Administration (TSA).

Laden Sie die MyTSA-Mobilanwendung für Flughafenstatus und Wartezeiten an Kontrollkontrollpunkten, Informationen zur 3-1-1-Regel für Flüssigkeiten, Gele und Aerosole im Handgepäck sowie zum Umgang mit Lebensmitteln/Geschenken herunter.

Pack any gifts unwrapped, as they may need to be inspected by security. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is also providing additional Helpful Hints for Holiday Travelers online.
