Airfares started going up before Easter and analysts say time is running out for people planning their vacations to get cheap tickets.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provided new fuel for the so-called "reopening trade," and airline stocks are taking flight as a result. Shares of American Airlines Group (NASDAQ: AAL), United Airlines Holdings (NASDAQ: UAL), Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL), Spirit Airlines (NYSE: SAVE), and JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) are leading the way, all up more than 5% on Friday.
Delta Air Lines will require all new hires in the United States to be vaccinated against COVID-19, one of the first major companies to issue such a mandate. "Any person joining Delta in the future, future employees, we're going to mandate they be vaccinated before they can sign up with the company," Chief Executive Ed Bastian told CNN in an interview late Thursday. Delta is not making the requirement for current employees, he said.
