Airlines project 3% increase in spring travel
 

WASHINGTON – Airlines are projecting a 3% rise to 140 million passengers during March and April, compared to a year ago, the trade group Airlines for America said Wednesday.
The peak would be the highest ever for spring travel and top the 136.2 million passengers during the same period in 2015, the group said.
