Thanksgiving eve was the busiest air travel day of the pandemic, despite health warnings


The busiest air travel day of the coronavirus pandemic came on Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, with 1,070,967 passengers clearing airport security.

It was the third time in one week that the Transportation Security Administration reported screening more than 1 million daily passengers — a milestone that airports have rarely seen since the pandemic slashed air travel in March.

This is interesting, as I had figured more people would be driving. Any flight less than 1000km can probably be done by car just as quickly and with less stress 🤔
