The US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reported airport security passenger screening volume remained about 25% less than before the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2019.

During the end of May 2021, including the Memorial Day weekend, the TSA's average number of daily screened travelers was about 1.8 million people. This compares with May 2019's volume of 2.4 million.

The peak day was recorded on May 28, 2021.

However, compared to May 2020's average passenger volume of less than 320,000 per day, it looks like the airline travel industry is on the road to recovery! 

As of June 1, 2021, the U.S. CDC and State Department continue to discourage both domestic and international air travel.
