(Des Moines, IA) -- Des Moines International Airport is expecting more people to travel as Summer Break arrives even with air fares jumping 18% between April and May nationally. DSM's Kayla Kovarna says the airport offers eleven more destinations than in 2021 for travelers, and more low cost airlines. DSM Airport traffic was expected to be up 7% over Memorial Day weekend compared to a year ago. Kovarna says the airport expects July to be very busy too. But getting back to pre-pandemic numbers and lower ticket prices will depend on airlines dealing with fuel costs and staffing shortages.
