Travel search site Skyscanner (www.Skyscanner.net) has seen its traffic spike during one of the worst weeks for the European airline industry, as wide ranging industrial action brought travel chaos to Germany, Greece and Paris, and news of a fresh BA strike was announced.
Two thirds of travellers are in favour of plans to install body scanners in airports, according to the latest poll on the travel search site Skyscanner.
With the demise of an unusually high number of airlines in 2009 the industry was looking in poor shape. However, things are not all doom and gloom in 2010 with many airlines still announcing new routes for the coming year.
Jet-setters from both North American neighbors are still enamored with the big hitters of Europe and the US, with London, New York City, Paris and Dublin all falling in the top seven spots for each, and London unanimously at number one.
Travel search site Skyscanner has already seen an 283% rise on searches for Flyglobespan routes and expects to see traffic increase further as news of the airline’s collapse spreads and affected travellers scramble to find replacement flights.
