Nearly 1 million fewer passengers passed through airport security checkpoints across the US on Friday, part of a steep drop-off in air travel over the past two weeks, data show.
The Transportation Security Administration data found 957,000 fewer passengers that day compared with the equivalent day in 2019. It is the most recent day for which the throughput numbers are available.
Overall in the past two weeks, nearly 5.2 million fewer people have passed through checkpoints than the year before.
