Air Travel at Highest Levels Since Holidays: TSA

Air travel on Sunday hit its highest levels since the holiday season, with nearly 1.3 million people screened at airports nationwide, according to the Transportation Security Administration.

The 1,277,719 travelers Sunday was the most since Jan. 3, when 1,327,289 people were screened.

For context, the daily number fell below 1,000,000 on March 17 at the outset of the coronavirus pandemic and hit seven figures just once more — on Oct. 18 — during the rest of 2020, excluding the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday periods.

At its nadir on April 14, only 87,534 people were screened, according to TSA statistics.

“It’s a nice sign,” said American Airlines COO David Seymour, CNN reported. “It’s nice to see these numbers. Obviously, TSA is seeing it. We’re seeing it as well, but we need to see more of it to really say that we’re in that full recovery mode.”
