TSA reports it screened 1.17 million travelers on Sunday alone.

Thanksgiving looked a bit different this year, with the pandemic raging on; however, that didn't stop millions of people from traveling over the holiday weekend. According to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), 1,176,091 people passed through U.S. airport security checkpoints on Sunday—the busiest day of air travel since mid-March.

To compare, on the Sunday after Thanksgiving in 2019, there were 2,882,915 people screened—the highest volume day in TSA history.
