U.S. Holiday Air Travel Set To Break Records

The US is halfway through what AAA predicted would be the nation’s busiest holiday travel period ever for domestic airports, having forecasted 7.5 million plane passengers, Janet H. Cho reported for Barron’s Daily.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA), however, has already screened more than 11.9 million passengers at airport checkpoints from December 23 to 27.


That figure is 17% higher than the number of passengers—10.1 million—who flew over those dates in 2023 and 2% above the nearly 11.7 million people who traveled during that span in 2019, according to TSA figures.

AAA had projected the number of air passengers between December 23 and January 1 would beat the previous record of 7.3 million passengers in 2019. AAA expects 115 million Americans to travel 50 miles or more from home this year, including nearly 104 million by car.
