ATLANTA — As thousands of people plan for Memorial Day travel, Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is preparing for the start of what is expected to be a busy summer season.
Memorial Day, which marks the unofficial start of summer vacation travel, is expected to bring more than 2 million passengers through Georgia's capital between May 26 through June 1, according to a release from Hartsfield-Jackson.
According to a recent AAA report, "there are twice as many bookings of flights, hotels, cruises and rental cars for the 2022 Memorial Day weekend, compared to last year’s holiday."
A new quarterly survey from the Auto Club Group shows that Georgians are more comfortable traveling now than any other time since the pandemic began.
