FAIRFIELD - While the economy remains on shaky ground, travel experts hope Americans start taking to the skies.

Fairfield?s Up and Away travel agency says now is a great time to find low air fares as airlines try their hardest to fill every available seat.

"They've enticed the public with some low fares in hopes that they can bring the public back into traveling," says travel expert Jane Engleson.

Engleson says that once a great deal is found, it?s better to buy sooner than later due to the always changing air fare prices.

"We're all trying to save money these days because of the economy, and if I can travel cheaper, why wouldn't I?? says Engleson.
