This is Good News

U.S. air travelers top 1.5 million for first time since March 2020 | Reuters

TSA said it screened 1.54 million people Sunday, the highest single day since March 13, 2020 and the 11th consecutive day screening volume exceeding 1 million per day.

These are spectacular numbers. Still, we should be closer to 2 million per day, at least on heavy days. So there’s still a way to go.

Still, U.S. air travel demand was down Sunday about 30% versus pre-COVID 19 levels. International and business travel demand both still remain weak.

For the last week, trade group Airlines for America said passenger demand was down 47% over pre-pandemic levels, while international travel demand was down 68%.

Baby steps.
