Commuting by air isn’t new. Those in more senior professional positions have been living in one city and doing frequent business in another on a regular basis since commercial air travel became commonplace. Whether it’s a doctor whose family is in New York with a practice in Florida, a U.S. consultant commuting to a client in Europe, or someone who (before Brexit) lived in Madrid and flew to London, air travel has enabled far more flexible living and working.
But the post-pandemic prevailing economic winds are revealing new trends enabled by remote work, along with soaring rents, and air fares that have been outpaced by inflation. A pair of news stories in rapid succession last week presented independent cases of young people who relied on air travel to commute because it was significantly less expensive than renting housing locally.
