There was an increase in the number of tourists on the roads in the Gulf ahead of the Memorial Day holiday

The flow of travelers for this holiday weekend begins on Thursday, and this year the number of travelers is projected to be much higher than in previous years, even exceeding the numbers seen before the pandemic.

Bay Area airports and organizations like AAA expect at least 42 million travelers across the United States.

“The most important number is the number of people who will travel by plane, almost 3.4 million passengers and that is an increase of more than 5% to 2019, which means that they will exceed the pre-pandemic numbers despite the high cost of plane tickets”, explained Aixa Diaz, AAA speaker

But, although the transport trade had already started this Thursday, problems have already been seen.

Reimunda Vega told Telemundo 48 that her flight was delayed in Ecatepec, Mexico City, and that she had been waiting at the airport all day.

“They sent back some flights because of the situation in Mexico, and they mention that the Volcano fell because of the ash, but it seems that we have permission to fly there,” Reimunda said.

Airport authorities advise travelers to check flight status before arriving at the airport.

“We like that if you go by plane, you don’t send your suitcase to the luggage, but you keep the luggage and try to buy the flights that leave in the morning, because the flights that leave earlier are the ones that are not canceled or delayed. only Diaz said.

But between the holidays of all travelers, it is believed that only 8% will be by air and the majority, 87.6%, will be by land.

“It is a day to remember all our heroes, but sadly this same time last year 45 people died on our roads, an increase of 30% compared to 2021, and we unfortunately caught 900 people driving under the influence of alcohol. or drugs,” said Custodio López, spokesman for the CHP.

López indicated that these days the largest law enforcement operation will be launched where approximately 1,100 officers will deploy to the roads of the Chinese area and require drivers to be careful, wear seatbelts, and if they have been drinking, do not drive.
