President Biden’s federal mask mandate while traveling on planes, buses, trains and in airports received a 91% traveler confidence approval rating, according to the latest Traveler Confidence Index from Travel Again, which has been formed to restore consumer and corporate confidence in traveling and to encourage responsible government policy. Half of respondents said it increased their confidence in traveling, 41% said it had no change and only 9% said it decreased their confidence. Mike McCormick, co-founder, said the high traveler confidence approval rating for the mandate demonstrates the power of instituting consistent standards and policies that travelers understand “and this specific policy allows front-line travel staff to be more effective in their roles in keeping the public safe while traveling.” He added that overall traveler confidence remains clouded with significant uncertainty, however, as only 9% of business travelers and 13% of leisure travelers are fully ready to fly.
