Sumary of Thanksgiving air travel to rebound to 2019 levels, TSA says:
- WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of airline passengers traveling for Thanksgiving this year is expected to rebound to pre-coronavirus pandemic levels, but the Transportation Security Administration says it is ready to handle the surge.
- Administrator David Pekoske said Wednesday he expects agency staffing to be sufficient for what’s traditionally TSA’s busiest travel period.
- ” He said travelers should expect long lines at airports and plan to spend a little more time getting through security.
- But that plummeted in 2020 as the pandemic kept people at home.
- “In fact, implementation of the mandate will make travel safer and healthier for everyone,” he said.
