Good news for everyone who has been waiting a long time for the opportunity to come back for a vacation in the United States. The travel ban on incoming tourism from the European Union and many other countries will be lifted again in November 2021.
The entry ban was introduced in January 2020 to control the outbreak and spread of the corona virus. Joe Biden announced this week that travel restrictions would be lifted for fully vaccinated passengers. Approved vaccines include at least Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson (Johnson). Astra Geneca is still recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) before November because it is not used in the United States. Most likely, this vaccine will also be approved.
Mass booking for USA
The number of booked airline tickets skyrocketed after it was announced in November that Europeans could return to the United States. According to data from Vliegtickets.nl, as of September 21, most airline tickets to the United States have been booked since March 1, 2020. Compared to September 20, 2019, the number of bookings for the US has increased by 91 percent. Compared to September 20, 2020, the number of bookings for the United States has increased by 75 percent.
Sander Van Wein, Marketing and Yield Manager at Vliegtickets.nl: “It was only clear during the day, but we immediately saw a big difference in the number of airline tickets booked to the United States on September 20th. On September 20, we sold more tickets to the United States from March 1, 2020. One day later, we sold 21 percent more than the previous day. So when you hear the news about travel relaxation it turns out that people act immediately
