Travel agency air bookings have dipped amid a spike in new Covid-19 cases in the U.S.

For the week ending June 28, there was a 77% year-over-year decline in air transactions, compared with a 76.5% decline for the week ending June 21, reported ARC. 

It was the second week in a row that transactions decreased. For the week ending June 14, air bookings were down 75.2%. 

The declines reversed what had been a nearly two-month trend of rising air transactions after airlines hit bottom in the week of April 12, when transactions were down 93.8%. 

Last week saw the most reported cases of Covid-19 yet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including two days that set single-day records. Thirty-six states reported a rise in cases, sparking new restrictions in portions of the country on beaches, restaurants and bars.
