TSA records historically busy travel day

by ian

It was a record-breaking weekend for holiday travel. The TSA screened over 2.9 million at airports on Sunday making for the busiest day of air travel in American history.

Nearly 30 million passengers were expected to fly during the 10-day period ending on Nov. 27, another record high. This is up 9% from the same time last year and represented 1.7 million more travelers than pre-COVID levels. The record numbers come despite several weekend storms that placed nearly 14 million holiday travelers under weather advisories on Sunday.

The TSA has already screened a record number of passengers this year.
