Is It Safe to Fly to Florida this Holiday Season?

Best Everglades Airboat Tours, Is It Safe to Fly to Florida this Holiday Season?

You might have memories of flying down to Florida with your family as a child to visit your grandparents for Thanksgiving. Maybe it was on one of those holiday trips that you experienced your first airboat ride in the Florida Everglades.

Traditionally, there are lots of families who get together in South Florida every year to celebrate Thanksgiving. Of course, due to concerns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, many of those gathering won’t take place this year.

We are happy to see that many people are coming up with creative ways to make Thanksgiving special, even if they can’t gather around the dinner table to enjoy turkey and all the fixings with their family or friends.

If you are among the many who just can’t imagine spending Thanksgiving anywhere else – or who are simply so tired of being cooped up that you are looking for a holiday escape – there is encouraging news.

New Research on Safety of Airline Travel

Late last month, USA Today reported on a new study from a group of Harvard researchers, which concluded that flying on a plane is one of the safest things you can do these days.

“The study points to the ventilation systems on planes that refresh the air every two to three minutes, and new measures including heavy-duty disinfecting, strict face mask enforcement and social distancing during boarding and deplaning,” USA Today says. “The Harvard researchers said the ventilation system in the cabin ‘effectively counters the proximity travelers are subject to during flights.’”
