Jul 28, 2016

CHICAGO, IL - Despite global unrest and increasing terrorist attacks in the US and abroad, air travel will still be strong in the coming months according to surveys conducted by GO Airport Express.

Of the 445 respondents, 75 percent said they had plans to travel this summer. Of those, 86 percent said that recent terror attacks will not affect their plans. Just two percent said they cancelled trips and 10 percent have not yet decided.

In the comments, a few said they will continue to travel if it is for business.

"This is great news for the travel industry and the global economy," says John McCarthy, president, GO Airport Express. "We will not let the vile acts of terrorist groups and individuals keep us from our normal travel activities, whether it's for business or vacations."
