AAA Prediction: Record Travel Weekend in Air, on Road

COLUMBUS, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – AAA predicts it’ll be a record July 4th travel weekend.

Of the 50.7 million Americans expected to travel over the five-day weekend from Friday through Tuesday, 2.3 million of them are expected to be Ohioans.

Just as it did over the Memorial Day weekend, travel is bouncing back in a big way.

92,000 “Buckeyes” are taking to the air this weekend.

That figure is up 8-percent from last year.

That’s when the airline business was having issues with weather staffing and more.
