American Air Travel Industry Prepares for Travel Boom in 2024

American Air Travel industry prepares for Travel boom in 2024

The US travel industry reeled under the impact of the Covid pandemic for two years 2020 & 2021. When the industry revived in 2022 with travelers showing a strong desire to travel in both domestic and international segments, there was an operational meltdown.  

Southwest Airlines (LUV.N) experienced significant operational disruption, leading to the cancellation of nearly 17,000 flights and causing inconvenience for approximately 2 million customers.
As a result the TaxiCab industry also suffered last year. The Christmas holiday season was affected.

According to Mr Shafan Nath, founder of Boston Airport Express -a leading Boston taxi cab service provider, “We are expecting a good turnout of both domestic and international tourists at Logan International Airport. Three consecutive years of bad business have been lethal to many of us. Last summer there were about 25% flight cancellations.”

According to AAA estimates, approximately 42.3 million Americans are expected to travel during the U.S. Memorial Day holiday weekend on May 29.

The Federal Aviation Administration anticipates a total of nearly 313,000 flights to be operated during the seven-day period ending on May 30, marking a 4.5% increase from 2022 and just slightly below the pre-pandemic levels of 2019.

TripAdvisor also reports a surge in demand for international trips this summer, leading to higher airfares to Europe and Asia, which have reached their highest point in over five years.

While airlines have shown improved performance this year, there is a shortage of air traffic controllers, resulting in reduced flights in the New York City area. To compensate for the decrease in the number of flights, carriers are utilizing larger aircraft.

Numerous flights delayed and cancelled due to bad weather on the east coast.

BOSTON – There’s been numerous delays and cancellations in the vicinity of Logan Airport because of stormy conditions along the East Coast. The FAA requested an emergency ground flight stop at Logan Airport on Thursday evening.

The tarmac reminded me of that of the Southeast Expressway during rush hour. A passenger of Boston Airport Express who was on one of these planes shared this with us. He was coming to watch Thursday evening’s Celtics NBA Finals game but was stuck at the airport in New York as his flight was cancelled.

He said the tickets for Boston Celtics final game was quite costly and that he had managed two tickets with a lot of difficulty. “There is not much I can do about the flight cancellation”, and Mr Barner booked our car service from New York to Boston and reached Boston slightly late but enough to join the second quarter of the Game.
Within the terminals, the frustration was leaking out. The FAA had ordered an emergency ground stop for over an hour following severe weather that affected airports along the East Coast.

“I waited for 11 hours, before the flight finally took off” another passenger told me. “I was 12 hours off the schedule. But I guess it is better to be safe & late than risk the nature fury.”
In the United States More than 188,000 flight delays were reported while 3500 flights were cancelled.

In an announcement, Delta said, “Weather challenges at airports across the northeast today have caused congestion for both arrivals and departures at Boston Logan International Airport. We apologize to customers for any inconvenience as Delta teams work with ATC to get customers on their way as quickly and safely as possible.”

FlightAware estimates that about 10% of flights departing from Logan were cancelled, however an astonishing 34% had delays.
The travel troubles are a result of the executives of airlines meet with Transport Secretary Pete Buttigieg to discuss how airlines can handle the busy summer season.

Gas Prices in Massachusetts break record Overnight

Gas Prices in Massachusetts break record Overnight

Gas Prices in Massachusetts break record Overnight

People are witnessing a shock with record breaking trends in gas prices this Memorial Day . In this week’s market, prices already at a record level they in  Massachusetts and it continues to set records after record for increasing gas prices with no relaxation in sight. This gets tough for transportation companies in the state. For car service providers in Boston, with luxury vehicles that burn up fuel much faster than regular economic vehicles, this is getting unbearable.

Within Downtown Boston, it feels that the cost of gasoline can range from $4.90 and $5.20 for each gallon. There are some Shell or Gulf petrol stations in the South End that are even asking for $5.60 per gallon. The Cape Cod region is pretty much the same with an average price that is about $4.80 per gallon. So, this is compelling us to add fuel surcharges to our car ride services. 

Gas Prices on the 1st of June 2022 

Average gas price in Massachusetts : 
$4.76 / Gallon
Average gas price in the USA:
$4.67 / Gallon
Average price of Mid-grade gasoline:
$5.09 / Gallon
Average price of Premium Gas :
$5.35 / Gallon
Average price of Diesel : 
$6.25 / Gallon

At an average price of $4.76 the figure is the highest number ever recorded in Massachusetts as per American Automobile Association. It’s quite a leap from the cost of a gallon of gasoline in 2013, when the average price for Massachusetts of $2.92. The increase in the price of gasoline is correlated with the ongoing situation in Ukraine due to the continuing Russian incursion.

Other factors also contribute to the sudden price rise. For instance, crude oil is currently trading at $118 per barrel, which is up 71 percent than a year ago. Additionally, the strain on refineries, who are trying to meet the demand, as more people are returning to work. 

While more people returning to work and international travel and domestic travel starting to rise again was welcome news for taxi cab and car service providers, the fuel price rise is now a dampening factor. 

Cape Cod Cutting on Emission Poses a Transportation Challenge

Cape Cod Cutting on Emission Poses a Transportation Challenge for the Car-Centric Region

Cape Cod Cutting on Emission Poses a Transportation Challenge

New emission cutting measures in Cape Cod may cause major changes Car owners and Drivers circle

Cape Cod is making an environment-friendly decision to cut its greenhouse gas output, and the need to restrict transportation emissions is rising, especially among car-centric regions.

The draft climate action plan released by Cape Cod regional planning authority in April states that transportation is responsible for more than 55% of greenhouse emissions in the area. The report also recommends more environment-friendly methods to be incorporated, such as using electric vehicles, strengthening public transit, and creating land-use policies to reduce the number of gas-driven vehicles on the roads. 

Nevertheless, with the rapidly shifting economy and the current development patterns, the incorporation of new measures faces a substantial challenge. Especially, it will be difficult for taxi drivers providing car services from Boston to Cape Cod.

Cape Cod sprawls over an area of 400 square miles and accommodates roughly 215,000 people year-round. This population, however, grows triple during Summer as vacationers and second homeowners gather in the area.

Cape Cod has heavily relied on cars due to the historical development of the region.

The need for electric vehicles

In order to cut down on the emission, electric vehicles need to be adopted as the go-to method of transportation. Nevertheless, although the regional climate plan calls for the development of new charging stations, the execution of these strategies is out of the commission’s control as utility and property owners will need to execute the installation.

Electric vehicle owners are mostly anxious about running out of charge on their vehicles and not having a charging dock around.

Improving public transportation

The second stage to slashing the greenhouse emission is to improve public transportation, allowing people to get around easily without having to resort to their vehicles. Fortunately, such methods have been in development for several years in Cape Cod. 

Ridership is up as bus lines are now able to connect all 15 Cape towns with more direct service, shuttles being available five times a week to transport locals to Boston Hospital, and flexible services being allowing travelers to make advance reservations. Train travel is also being considered.

Although the state of the public transportation is in good shape, there is still a lot to be done to attract residents and visitors to public transportation in Cape Cod.

The Human-Shark Conflict in Cape Cod is Evolving Towards Co-Existence

the human sharp conflict towards coexistence

Cape Cod is one of the historically known areas of Massachusetts that has been infested with sharks. The oldest surfers know about the legends of Cape Cod beaches that often include the encounter of sharks with humans. That is why they stand there scanning the closest shore for seals, who are the primary food for sharks. 

The seals have been rebounding to Cape Cod since the 1970s after they almost went to the verge of extinction due to massive hunting. The surfers, too, have started to change their habits, with many of them choosing to surf exclusively in the winter to avoid an encounter with the great white sharks.

Ecologists, on the other hand, credit the 1972 Marine Mammal Protection Act for the return of the seals and the sharks. Nevertheless, as the seals’ population increases and subsequently sharks come to these shores in search of food, the Outer Cape’s four small towns and the National Park Service’s concerning demands become conservation and human safety.

One of the effective measures that are being taken by various countries is the use of sophisticated and highly advanced satellite and tracking technology. This tool is used to predict whether sharks will infest a particular area of water by gauging environmental conditions like water temperature, tides, and lunar cycles. The tool is known as a heat map and acts as a “weather forecasting system, just for sharks”.

The governments in New England had almost wiped out the seal population by offering a bounty on seal noses and incorrectly blaming them for lower fish stocks. With the seal, the population of sharks started dwindling, too, with many of them being subjected to a daily mixture of trophy hunting, culling, and industrial fishing. The human-shark interactions also led to the belief that sharks are dangerous to humans and resulted in human-shark conflict management through lethal means.

However, the latest measures that are being taken to manage human-shark conflicts lean on a more compassionate approach. Ultimately, the one solution that is deemed most effective is the modification of human behaviour. It sounds good for both vacationers and cab companies operating in Cape Cod.
