American Airlines said that bookings are approximately back to pre-pandemic levels as more people are getting vaccinated, but public health leaders restated their concern that travel will develop the virus as newly recorded infections grow in the United States. The most powerful travel demand is for domestic and short-distance international trips. With a growing number of Americans getting their vaccines, the number of airline passengers has increased to around the highest levels since the pandemic pounded air travel a year ago.

Stable and swift restoration of travel demand is expected to be greater for destinations that rely more profoundly on domestic and short-haul travelers. In addition, cheaper travel, remaining global travel limitations, uncertainty around carrier availability, and heightened risk aversion are likely to boost consumer preference for traveling closer to their homes.
Blending both arrivals from within the nation and faith in short-haul travel, Germany, Norway and Romania are the most rebounding and likely to be quicker and more solid in recovery.
