The ATAA warns of the biggest traffic crush during the World Cup

Qatar unprepared for World Cup air traffic crush, report says

The organizers of the soccer World Cup are planning for the biggest traffic crush in U.S. air travel history, according to a report released on Thursday.

An annual report by the Air Transport Association of America (ATAA), a trade group for the U.S. airline industry, showed that the World Cup soccer tournament would generate an estimated 1.5 billion fliers a year, compared to 1.3 billion for the Super Bowl and 1.2 billion for the Daytona 500 and Daytona 500 in the Daytona Road Tunnel.

The World Cup is the largest single travel event in U.S. history, and has become a showcase for the airline industry, which has been struggling for years because of high fuel prices and the competition from low-cost carriers.

Some of the world’s most popular airlines, including British Airways and Emirates, already are operating World Cup-related routes that have been previously booked out for the race.

But the World Cup traffic crush does not include the possibility of fans traveling to France by land on the same planes carrying the World Cup teams.

“Airlines should remind their passengers to be considerate of other passengers and hold a seat on the flight until everyone is assigned their flights,” the ATAA said.
