      A new report from Airlines for America predicts spring travel this year will be the highest in 6 years.

      They say about about 2.1 million people will fly during the month of March and April.

      With the increase, FOX 31 wanted to know, would you still fly?

      Some local viewers gave us their response.

      Valerie McGhee says, "I went ahead and bought my tickets for the Bahamas early at the end of January so I wouldn't have to deal with the increased prices of flights."

      Jacqueline Pearceberry says, "because of the airline tickets now, I'd rather just put all the kids in the car and drive down to Panama City."

      Experts credit the increase to the improving economy and affordable travel costs.
