Skyscanner Reveals Surge In Interest For US Trips Following Travel Announcement

Since the start of August, UK travelers have been searching to travel in November with the week of Thanksgiving being the most popular.

The US is currently the 7th most searched destination globally on Skyscanner in terms of volume (20th September), and we expect that to increase significantly as the announcement has now been confirmed.*

One of Skyscanner’s most senior travel experts has provided comment following a landmark announcement for the resumption of travel to the US.

“This is really welcome news for all those travellers who have been waiting to visit the US for over eighteen months. Searches for key US destinations like New York and Orlando have remained high throughout the pandemic, despite restrictions preventing bookings as people have been dreaming about seeing family and friends or visiting some of the most popular destinations in the United States.

“Travel between the UK and US accounts for a significant proportion of tourism for both countries, particularly between London and New York. While travellers have continued to search in large numbers for flights between the UK and US throughout the pandemic, the majority of fares booked have been primarily short-term essential travel.

“With the option for transatlantic travel now open we expect a large portion of these searches to convert to bookings very quickly, as friends and families make plans to be reunited and vacationers head to their favourite spots.” said Martin Nolan, Traveller Rights Expert at Skyscanner.
