The travellers returning home from Thanksgiving getaways packed airports to levels not seen since before the pandemic but fell short of 2019 levels, as expected.

The Transportation Security Administration said it screened 2,451,300 people Sunday as passengers who departed on a variety of days leading up to the holiday returned home en masse.

That is more than double the nearly 1.2 million people who passed through checkpoints on the Sunday after Thanksgiving last year but nearly half a million passengers shy of the Sunday after Thanksgiving in 2019, which remains the busiest day in TSA’s history with 2,882,915 people screened.

For the 10-day Thanksgiving travel rush that began Nov. 19, the TSA said it screened nearly 20.9 million passengers. That compares with 9.5 million a year ago and a record 23.5 million in 2019.
