With vaccines rolling out across the world, the travel industry is beginning to see signs of life again. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) screenings have reached the highest volumes in a year, and air carriers are experiencing an increase in bookings.
In the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a statement explaining that as long as COVID-19 precautions are taken, fully vaccinated travelers are a low risk and can travel in the United States without getting tested for COVID-19 before or self-quarantining after. The European Commission also recently announced that the bloc would switch policy and allow U.S. travelers who are fully vaccinated, possessing vaccine certificates as proof of immunity, to potentially travel to the European Union as early as summer.
