In the United States, air travel is still recovering since the beginning of the
global pandemic. Although air travel numbers remain low, they have seen
a consistent uptick in volume. In the last twenty days, over 1 million travelers
have gone through U.S. airports each day. Additionally, the TSA announced
that yesterday, they screened over 1.5 million people nationwide on Easter
Sunday.Lisa Farbstein, a spokesperson for the TSA said, “TSA screened
1,543,474 people nationwide yesterday, Sunday, April 4. On the same day
in 2020, TSA screened 122,029 and in 2019, TSA screened 2,462,929 people.
Volume is up significantly from 2020, but there’s still a long way to go to return
to pre-pandemic levels.”With the vaccine rollout continuing to gain ground,
more and more air travel should be set to pick up in a re-opening and back
to normal economy.
