Americans travel back home hassle-free after Thanksgiving weekend

thanksgiving-weekendIt was a hassle-free travel back home for millions of Americans on Sunday after a long Thanksgiving weekend via air, rail or road.


The Transportation Security Administration anticipated screening about 2.5 million passengers on Sunday, about 500,000 more than an average weekday, Associated Press quoted spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein as saying.


Farbstein added that air travelers were moving through security checkpoints at airports across the nation “quite smoothly” noting that the agency brought in additional officers on overtime to handle the influx of passengers.


Federal Aviation Administration data showed most U.S. airports with delays of 15 minutes or less Sunday afternoon with the exceptions of LaGuardia Airport, in New York and New Jersey’s Newark International Airport. A large volume of passengers was the cause behind slightly longer delays in LaGuardia Airport while windy conditions made matters a little difficult at Newark Airport.


AAA had estimated 48.7 million Americans would travel this Thanksgiving week.
