Busiest day at U.S. Airports since Coronavirus outbreak
It seems that the lowest point for aviation has been reached. Aviation is growing again. In Europe timetables are being expanded, in China domestic flights are increasing rapidly and in America last Friday was the busiest day at American airports since the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
Figures from the TSA show the hustle and bustle at US airports. This is a government agency that carries out security checks at American airports. Last Friday more than 250,000 passengers were screened by the TSA. This is the highest number in the last 8 weeks. Normally the TSA screens about 2,500,000 passengers per day.
The number of screenings does not correspond to the exact number of passengers. However, it is seen as a reliable indicator of how many people fly every day. It was also announced last week that global aviation capacity is increasing again. It is expected that more and more airlines will increase the number of flights in the coming weeks.
BREAKING NEWS: On Friday, May 15th, 250,467 individuals came through @TSA checkpoints nationwide, exceeding a quarter million for the first time since March 24th. Exactly one year earlier, 2,664,549 people were screened at security checkpoints across the country.
