The Transportation Security Administration has screened more than a million people at airports for six straight days.

That’s a streak not even seen during the peak holiday season.

More than 7. 5 million people have passed through U.S. airports since Thursday.

But the bigger numbers are still only about half of what travel figures were before the COVID-19 pandemic.

Airlines say passengers aren’t booking months in advance right now, instead, they are watching infection trends and only planning travel a few weeks out.
