Increased Traveling Summer 2014

After earning his Juris Doctor from the University of Virginia School of Law, Jonathan Nadler served as a law clerk for a federal district judge in Laredo, Texas, and began practicing labor and employment law. He is currently an attorney with Eckert Seamans Cherin and Mellott, LLC, in Philadelphia. Jon Nadler represents employers in a wide variety of labor and employment matters. In his time outside the office, he enjoys jazz, tennis, and traveling.

Traveling is at a new high in the U.S. Experts expect that approximately 210 million passengers will fly on U.S. carriers during the summer of 2014, the highest in six years. This includes 30 million passengers traveling internationally on U.S. carriers, an all time high.

Several factors are likely responsible for the special interest in traveling this summer. Summer holidays and appealing travel package deals always play a role in summer travel. Although airlines typically increase prices by two percent during the summer months, travel booking websites are offering fares to the most-desired destinations in the United States at rates that are the same or up to 23 percent less than 2013.
