5:10 pm
us borders to most international travelers is not only leading to as we saw a lot of reunions family reunions. but the added tourists are good. of course, for local business and a boost to the bay area and sfo recovery suppose where we find kron four's. dan kerman with more. hi, dan. >> you know, sfo really has had a slow recovery and that's because at sfo, they have so many international flights about 25% of all the traffic areas international. so the opening for international travelers is really going to be approved first, syrian >> international travelers are being welcome back to sfo and other airports across the country with open arms. what we look at this as. >> is a key moment to help unlock the recovery of international traffic at sfo monday. the u.s. reopened its borders to many vaccinated, international travelers for the first time in 20 months.
5:11 pm
>> clearing the way for these types of reunions is especially important at sfo since historically 25% of its overall passenger traffic comes from international destinations. as the post says this change should give the airport and the businesses at the airport. a real boost especially with the holidays coming up, typically the peak time of year for our airport is in the summer. that's when we have the most flights, the most seats available. it's different. this holiday season. we actually have more flights and more seats available this holiday compared to this past summer. >> it's a sign that airlines are really bullish about this holiday season. he's added flights will also translate into tourist dollars in downtown san francisco. we don't have the casinos are big theme parks. what we have is a lot of small businesses restaurants and retail establishments and art museums and galleries in coffee shops. all those businesses are benefiting from an international visitor comes here. and just as sfo relies on international traffic. >> so to san francisco when it comes to tourist dollars. san
5:12 pm
francisco in 2000, 19 saw over 63% of all travelers spending by international visitors. the highest percentage in the country. so we rely on international visitors in san francisco in the greater bay area. more than other regions like this or any region like it's in the united states. so this is a really important day. >> so officials say we should start seeing that probably over the christmas holidays. but the real impact for these open borders for international will be felt in the spring the summer live at sfo. dan kerman kron 4 news. thank you, california may be starting to slip when it comes to keeping the pandemic under control. we're taking a look. >> at the cdc's covid-19 transmission map. this is for the bay area in san francisco, san mateo counties there in the yellow moderate spread tear. but all the other counties are in the orange substantial tier. now certainly with the holidays coming up. all eyes are on what is around the corner and could we be facing another winter surge just like last
