Americans set international travel records last year despite terrorism, Zika and Ebola – Los Angeles Times

Americans traveled abroad in record numbers last year, seemingly undeterred by fears of terrorism, Ebola or Zika.

A total of 74 million U.S. residents traveled internationally in 2015, up 9% from the previous year, marking the fourth straight year of increases, according to new data from the U.S. Department of Commerce.

During 2015, the number of Americans traveling abroad climbed despite the threat of terrorist attacks in the Middle East, North Africa, Europe and Asia.

The U.S. State Department issued a warning after terrorists in Paris killed 130 people and injured hundreds of others in November.
