In recent years the number of people visiting cities has risen dramatically, whether because of cruise tourism, the sharing economy or low-cost airlines. In some cases these increases have been so massive that residents have formed groups to stem this influx.
U.S. airlines carried a new seasonally-adjusted high of 73.8 million systemwide (domestic and international) scheduled service passengers in April 2018, up 0.9 percent from March for the third consecutive monthly increase.
