As 2020 wraps up and we look toward the future of travel in 2021, you might be wondering what travel’s like now, what it’s like to fly, and how airports have changed.
“I asked myself these same questions back in July when I suddenly needed to travel within the U.S.,” said traveler Fiona. “I was nervous and unsure about navigating multiple airports, not to mention what to expect on the plane.”
“But as soon as I walked through the terminal doors, I breathed a sigh of relief. There were very few crowds and airport representatives strictly enforced the mask policy throughout the airport. I felt even better when I saw the sections of blocked off seats at the gate and representatives in the boarding queue reminding passengers to social distance. With plenty of space between passengers on the plane and amped up sanitation measures, I felt more comfortable than I could have imagined. Thanks to all these cautionary measures, I had a successful and stress-free trip.”
