It looks like this year is going to be record-breaking for summer travel.
The industry trade group, Airlines for America, is estimating around 234 million passengers to travel worldwide on US airlines just between June and the end of August. This is the highest number ever, increasing by 4% in comparison to last summer.
Dallas-Fort Worth International, one of the busiest airports nationwide, is expecting about 18 million passengers, a number that is higher than any other summer.
Surprisingly, more Americans are planning to go abroad, with an unprecedented 20 million passport applications this year.
With crowded airports and roads, as well as destinations (especially the popular ones), a little preparation can make a huge difference.
