BOSTON, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Logan Airport was busy on Tuesday morning, but crowds did not appear as large as other holiday weekends.
The TSA is reporting a 14% decrease in air travel this Labor Day weekend, compared to the 2019 holiday weekend.
The CDC had warned unvaccinated Americans to stay home and not travel over the holiday. Concerns have grown over the Delta variant of Covid-19 and that is believed to be a factor in the lower travel numbers.
Liz and John flew back home to Cincinnati, Ohio after a visit to Boston for the weekend. They spoke with WBZ NewsRadio's James Rojas while in line.
"This is probably the last time we'll fly for a while though, if we hadn't had it booked already, we may not have done it," said Liz and John.
For many travelers, Covid safety is a top priority as they head home. Mary is headed back to Fort Lauderdale, Florida and says she is taking Covid seriously and had a Covid test before going to the airport.
"Florida and Texas are the highest one with the variant, so I was negative and off I went," she said.
Mary added she believes people that are comfortable to travel are going to if they're able to.
