Airports to Become Holiday-Time Madhouses All Year Round?

b_250_0_16777215_00_images_obgrabber_2013-11_bfe6616cba.jpgComstock/Thinkstock (NEW YORK) -- If you’ve ever flown on the day before Thanksgiving, you know what an utter madhouse the airport terminal becomes. Now, imagine the same happening on any given day of the year.  It could very well happen.  USA Today says a U.S. Travel Association study it reviewed points out that before long, two dozen of the nation’s busiest airports will feel like the day before Thanksgiving twice a week, every week of the year.

Airports that could see congestion rise 30 to 40 percent by 2016 include New York's JFK Airport, Las Vegas, Orlando, Fla., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Chicago Midway, Honolulu and San Diego. Two factors account for that, according to the study.  First is that there are more people traveling, and secondly, consolidation means squeezing these passengers through fewer hubs.

This dramatic increase in fliers will also result in longer lines at security checkpoints and delays in arriving and taking off. Ironically, the problem could ultimately lead to less congestion, says Erik Hansen, director of domestic policy at U.S. Travel, because people won’t want to bother with all the hassles of flying.  And that’s something the airline industry doesn’t want to see happen either.
