• Romantic travel flourishes - just not on Valentine's Day

    2010-02-02

    According to a new survey, love is in the air, though it may stay grounded during Valentine's Day as airfare trafficker Yapta's Valentine's Day Travel Survey found that most romantic fliers stay closer to home on February 14.

    The survey posed questions to 6,500 single and involved travelers with the goal of discovering how romantic conquest may sway one's flying habits. Results showed that 60 percent of those surveyed planned on taking some form of romantic vacation with their significant other over the coming year.

    Though this suggests that a lot of couples may soon be taking to the skies, only 14 percent of those who responded positively indicated that they would be flying this Valentine's Day. The survey also polled romance travelers on their favorite destinations for romance with Italy taking the top spot with 22 percent, followed by Hawaii with 18 percent, France and the Caribbean tied at 10 percent and French Polynesia rounding out the list with 9 percent.

    Respondents also found travel to be an excellent way to meet someone, with 13 percent reporting to have found love in an airport or on an airplane, while one in four claimed to have taken a trip exclusively to meet someone.
