Europeans travel to US again – level 3

12-11-2021 15:00

After waiting for more than 600 days, passengers across Europe crowded into airports to catch their first flights to the US since March 2020 when the country closed to most European travelers.

According to data from Travelport, a global technology company, flight reservations to and within the US have already reached 70% of their pre-pandemic levels.

Travelers were united by a sense of exhilaration despite the arduous process of getting through long lines and having paperwork ready. However, the upbeat mood can´t hide the fact that the aviation industry remains deep in crisis.  Losses from the coronavirus pandemic are set to pass hundreds of billions of dollars this year, and hundreds of thousands of airline employees have lost their jobs.

Difficult words: exhilaration (a feeling of great happiness and excitement), arduous (difficult to accomplish or achieve), upbeat (cheerful or optimistic).
