American Holidays has reported a surge in queries for holidays to New York, Las Vegas and Orlando following the announcement by President Joe Biden, that the US will lift Covid-19 travel bans on vaccinated air passengers from Ireland and the UK.
On Monday (September 20th), spokesperson for The White House, Jeffrey Zients, stated that the new “consistent approach” would take effect in “early November”.
Head of Marketing for American Holidays, Bladhana Richardson, has confirmed the company are already seeing a substantial increase in the volume of queries from customers looking to get away, as soon as the restrictions lift in November – but also for December and into 2022.
According to Ms Richardson, the majority of requests have been for New York, Las Vegas and Orlando, Florida: “We have seen increases in requests for the West Coast, Caribbean Cruise holidays and Canada. We are delighted with yesterday’s announcement and look forward to getting our customers back to experiencing the best the USA has to offer.”
She added: “Moreover, our expert team of personal travel planners are at the ready to answer any questions customers may have, and will help plan and tailor make the holiday they’ve always dreamed of.”
Ms Richardson also highlighted that American Holidays have taken full advantage of the discounted prices that some of the airlines are offering to the US.
