Tuesday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Here’s a look at Tuesday’s business headlines.

Airports

U.S. airlines and airports are preparing for the largest spike in flight traffic since March 2020 as the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays approach.

Daily domestic flights in November and December are scheduled to average 20,543 and 21,211.

In Dec. 2019, daily operations averaged 23,671, roughly 12% higher than this year’s scheduled flights and a 71% increase from what was recorded in Dec. 2020.

Disneyland

Disneyland in California raises the highest ticket prices to $164 a day.

As part of the move, the slowest days will remain at $104, the same as it has been since 2019, Disney said Monday.

The company created a tiered format for ticket prices in 2016, with weekend, summer and holiday prices higher than other days.

With this latest step, the company now has six tiers.

Kroger

Kroger has a new billion-dollar brand: the Home Chef Meal Kits.

Kroger bought the meal kit company about three years ago and it just reached sales of a billion dollars.

Kroger says more customers are seeking easy at-home meals and the company will expand its product selection.
