Domestic person-trips for both leisure and business purposes rose by 27.8 million, a 1.3 percent increase, totaling 2.2 billion person-trips in 2016. Domestic travel, specifically for leisure purposes, was the main driver of growth in overall travel to and within the U.S. in 2016. Since international arrivals to the U.S. fell by 2.1 percent in 2016, the 1.3 percent growth in domestic travel ensured the travel industry continued to grow.
