Thanks to the strong appreciation of the US dollar against the euro and the pound, the demand for European travel by American tourists boomed during the summer and continued extend into the fall. This has boosted revenue for US airlines and encouraged them to increase capacity for flights to Europe.

United Airlines' revenue from flights between the US and Europe increased 40% in the third quarter from the same period in 2019, to $2.5 billion.  The average fare on these flights to Europe has increased by 30% from a year earlier.

The strong US dollar has prompted US travelers to book tickets for flights to Europe. United Airlines launched many new routes this past summer with seat capacity for transatlantic flights up 14% compared to 2019 and the airline also plans to add more routes next year.  

All three of the largest US airlines reported increasing revenues from transatlantic flights compared to 2019.

Data from Dohop, the low-cost connecting flight booking platform, which used by more than 60 airlines including Spirit, Avianca and Air France, shows that passenger traffic from North America to Europe grew faster throughout the year than the other way around.

From May to August, passenger traffic from North America to Europe is 2.8 times higher than in the period from January to April. But passenger traffic from Europe to North America in the summer has less than doubled compared with the first four months of the year.

Airline bookings for flights from the US to Europe have returned to pre-Covid-19 levels. 

According to Norwegian aviation startup Norse Atlantic, which launched its first service between London and New York in August,  particularly strong demand for flights from the US to London thanks to the British pound depreciating much against the US dollar.

Transatlantic travel contributed $1.9 billion in revenue in the third quarter, up 19% from the same period three years earlier for American Airlines.

International revenue for Delta Air Lines rose 12% in the third quarter, boosted by leisure and entertainment travel to Italy, Spain and Greece.

By next summer, United Airlines and Delta Air Lines are expected to increase the number of seats they offer on flights to Europe, according to aviation data company OAG.  United Airlines plans to expand 29% of its seat capacity for flights to Europe compared to 2019. Delta Air Lines' capacity for these flights is also expected to increase by 5%.

Many American travelers have missed many years of traveling to Europe due to the Covid-19 pandemic, so strong demand for flights to Europe is expected to last until the end of next summer.
