The Transportation Security Agency has reported that more people flew over the Labor Day weekend than at any other point in the COVID-19 pandemic. Some 935,308 passengers went through TSA checkpoints on Monday, setting a new record. The number of passengers who went through TSA checkpoints went over 900,000 twice during the long holiday weekend.

“For travelers who have not flown since the beginning of the pandemic, the TSA checkpoint experience will be noticeably different as compared to Labor Day last year,” TSA Administrator David Pekoske said. “Passengers also play an important role in helping us ensure they safely and efficiently get through security screening at our airports while wearing masks and respecting social distancing.”
