The COVID-19 pandemic ruined millions of travel plans in 2020, but it seems many are not having it in 2021.
This past weekend posted the highest number of passengers screened by the TSA in nearly a year, as Friday saw 1,357,111 passengers travel through security checkpoints.
That number, while still lower than what it was on the same date in 2020, far exceeds the slowest travel day of the past year, April 14, which only saw 87,500 passengers.
Sunday marked the fourth consecutive day the number of screened passengers exceeded 1 million, which has not happened since December 2020.
As more people are vaccinated across the United States travel is slowly increasing, indicating a possible recovery of the airline industry after losing more than $35 billion in 2020 according to CNBC.
