Busy 4th at the Airport

As we are now in the midst of summer, many will be traveling by air for their summer trip. If you have been flying, you may have noticed that it’s been quite busy at the airport. TSA reports that the upcoming July 4th holiday is expected to continue that trend. It’s estimated that 12.1 million people will be traveling through checkpoints from July 3-7 with the peak travel day on Sunday, July 7. The summer travel season kicked off on May 23, and since then, the Transportation Security Administration experienced six of the top 10 busiest days in the history of the agency. TSA expects a record-setting summer overall with 263 million passengers and crew members projected to pass through TSA checkpoints nationwide between Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day weekend.
